The Microsoft Office SharePoint Server, the server program component of the 2007 Microsoft Office system, is used by countless organizations to facilitate collaboration, manage content, and provide access to essential information. Since Microsoft Office is already in use almost universally, some IT departments advocate the use of SharePoint as a “free” collaboration tool and document management solution. Many SharePoint users, however, find that the system lacks sufficient document control, training, and other business process automation capabilities.

MasterControl complements the SharePoint server program to facilitate streamlined business processes and provide incomparable document control. MasterControl offers a seamless, out-of-the-box integration with SharePoint that capitalizes on the benefits of SharePoint while adding truly robust compliance solutions.
Here are just a few ways that MasterControl is helping SharePoint users control documents and manage business processes with greater ease and effectiveness:
|Microsoft SharePoint Challenges||MasterControl SharePoint Connector™ Software System Solution|
Many companies nested in SharePoint find themselves having to use separate software solutions for more advanced business processes that SharePoint was not designed to handle such as document control and personnel training. This usually results in processes that are overly complicated and time consuming.
|Connected Microsoft SharePoint System
Rather than forcing users to manage disparate solutions, MasterControl connects the two robust systems so processes may be fulfilled within the same platform of customizable, unified solutions.
|SharePoint Document Confusion
When documents are managed and controlled in different systems it is difficult for users to determine when and if they are working with the most up-to-date documents. Such challenges inevitably lead to duplicated efforts and wasted time.
With MasterControl, users are guaranteed that they are working with the most current version of a document. Stored in MasterControl’s secure, centralized repository, the most recent versions of documents are easily accessed with a mere click of a mouse. Links to these documents are easily added to the SharePoint library, making access simple for the SharePoint user.
|Difficulty Transitioning to New Process Management Solutions
In instances when SharePoint does not offer sufficient functionality for all required business processes, new solutions may need to be implemented. Replacing and learning new systems can be confusing, time consuming, and a waste of resources.
|Seamless Transition to New Solutions
With MasterControl’s SharePoint Connector, users can continue to use the SharePoint interface with which they are already familiar and simply enhance its capabilities by adding unparalleled document control and other MasterControl business process functionalities.
