Need To Boost ROI? Discover The Benefits Of SharePoint For Construction Companies

Microsoft’s SharePoint is renowned for its collaborative features, making it one of the best tools for file and document storage while allowing construction teams to work together seamlessly. Its integration with the rest of the M365 stack enhances its capabilities giving it the potential to be a great tool to help with the management of project information on an AEC project. 




However, there are challenges, especially when it comes to the setup and customization of SharePoint for a construction company’s unique needs – particularly pertaining to the ongoing management of security across a project’s lifecycle. SharePoint tends to have a poor reputation among end-users. Many perceive the platform as needing a ton of overhead to use and maintain. As a result, many companies avoid using SharePoint for their construction project needs, despite the fact they likely already own it. As a result, these companies are missing out on a huge opportunity to drive ROI. 




This podcast episode discusses best practices for setting up SharePoint and maintaining effective security, taxonomy, and libraries; emphasizing the importance of automation in these processes to alleviate the burden on IT departments and end-users. By automating user provisioning, security trimming, and metadata tagging, construction companies and design firms can leverage SharePoint to its full potential making it a very powerful tool for future AEC projects. 



Listeners Will Discover: 



The power of SharePoint as a collaboration tool in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry. 
Best practices for organizing SharePoint libraries, implementing metadata, and automating user provisioning and security trimming. 
The complexities of managing permissions at scale and how automation can streamline access control for external collaborators. 


How Project Ready's automation solutions can simplify SharePoint setup and ongoing management.
