During my consulting and auditing travels, I have the opportunity to dig deep into an organizations processes and activities. I often come across poorly, or barely, implemented SharePoint sites. Its like the company has installed it, looked at it and tossed it in a corner. They just don’t know what to do with it. They will go and spend thousands of dollars on other system, when, if they took the time (or even knew what the capabilities were) they could do the same with the product they have; SharePoint.
With these series of blogs I hope to show what can actually be done with it, I call it SharePoint for the real world. I’ll provide real examples of implementations for manufacturing, construction, marine and government and how to use it to make compliance a snap for management systems such as quality, health and safety, environment and security. I want to bridge the gap between what you and your employees need and how these things can be achieved in SharePoint.
You’ll see examples of successful SharePoint developments such as creating maintenance tracking systems, calibration records, instrument tracking, color coded production calendars, hazard identification and risk assessment systems, inspection logs, incident management, non conformance recording and reporting, internal audit processes, action item trackers, and of course document management.
WHAT!?! You didn’t know it could do all this? Well stay tuned.
