Microsoft SharePoint

mssp_logoportal system is a powerful corporate communications tool that possesses a number of additional, often unique, information-service functions.

Implementing a corporate portal based on Microsoft SharePoint can reduce non-production costs and improve organization thanks to centralized access to information and knowledge, creating an information infrastructure for the company.

An internal corporate portal is a specialized system (usually a website) that creates an environment for collaborating and sharing information within a company. Such a system allows users to exchange information that can raise the collective organization of work to new levels – and it’s not just limited to documents. Corporate portals are usually physically located on the internal network (intranet) or available via a secure protocol via the Internet. The resulting solution is a closed system, meaning it’s only accessible to employees or contractors with the appropriate access rights.

The functions of a corporate portal are defined by the company’s business processes and its IT infrastructure. There are a number of features that are common to almost all corporate portals:

  • Collaboration and cooperation facilities
  • Organization and management of business processes
  • Facilities for accessing the enterprise’s information infrastructure
  • Electronic document management
  • Portal content management tools
