SharePoint as a B2B Extranet Introduction
- Published: 4 March 2019
Are you looking for a strategy solution that enables you to seamlessly communicate and collaborate with external businesses and clients?
Look no further!
A SharePoint Solutions strategy will enable you to collaborate with external employees of a business without the worry and hassle of security breaches, risks or random user adds.
There are a lot of additional features when investing in a SharePoint Solutions strategy. One key feature and major benefit is the ability to communicate and collaborate on documentation seamlessly with individuals who do not work within your company.
SharePoint’s B2B Extranet is a simple integration and seamless solution enabling businesses to collaborate with other businesses in a safe and secure environment.
An Extranet site in SharePoint Online is a site which allows you to let external partners have access to specific content and collaborate on documents/ files within your organisation’s intranet.
Extranet sites are a way to securely ‘DO’ business with individuals and/ or other businesses.
- Enable users to invite new partner users – an invitation is sent via email to the external user, who can redeem the invitation to access the content they have been invited to
- Sharing via site owners
- Security and restrictions of domain sharing – admins control the partner domains where individuals outside of the organisation can be approved or denied
- Ability to audit and report on activities within Office 365 Activity Reports
- Time saving and cost effective – Enabling your IT department to spend more time on larger IT matters than building out and deploying additional extranets/ software.
- Secured Sharing – Restricted policy and views lets users share content without the additional stress of other security factors.
- Seamless form of communication and collaboration – A SharePoint Environment focuses on ensuring that all employees both internal and external have the ability to share and integrate the ideas without hassle.
- Governance and auditing report – Provide the ability to manage and view who is inviting external users to the content being communicated and shared.
This is an exciting opportunity allowing businesses to collaborate with external users in a safe and secure SharePoint environment.
SharePoint’s Extranets allows for more efficient ways of communicating and collaborating within a safe and secure environment.
