5 reasons to migrate your file server to SharePoint Online

1. Ease of access

When you migrate to SharePoint from your file server, you will be able to access and work on your files from anywhere, and on any device. This level of accessibility means no matter where you are, or if you have access to your PC or not, you’ll be able to find and share any document on your team site.

2. External Sharing

SharePoint online allows you to collaborate on and share documents with people both inside and outside of your team. You can grant permissions to entire sites, specific folders or even individual documents. Within SharePoint, you can set permissions individually to allow read or edit functions without requiring further authentication. Guest links can also be created for anyone outside of your organisation, for which access can be revoked at any time.

3. File Management

With SharePoint, you can assign managers to different sites or libraries, who will be responsible for moderating the content there. You can also set permissions to grant access for certain people to specific files. This means you can allow your accounts team access to your accounting files, whilst keeping the sales team out – an important function with so many regulations and compliance checks.

4. Cost Saving

When migrating to SharePoint from your on-site file server, you not only save on everyday costs such as electricity and general maintenance, you also save a lot of management time. If you choose to use SharePoint instead of installing a file server, you will save a vast amount of money on the cost of purchasing a physical server, licencing and commissioning.

5. Updates

Users of SharePoint Online will enjoy all new updates and upgrades without enduring any of the issues faced with updating a physical file server. New features and patches are released and bought straight to you.
