Elium x Microsoft

Is your company using the  Microsoft suite?And are you unsatisfied of available knowledge sharing options?

You are not alone. The Microsoft suite is diverse, but tools like Sharepoint and Teams have not been built for knowledge management. They are difficult to manage by non-technical users and require heavy IT support.

On the other hand, Elium offers a flexible and versatile Knowledge Sharing tool and integrates perfectly within your Microsoft ecosystem.

Elium, Office Documents, OneDrive, Sharepoint and Teams, all make a great team.
Let’s see how!

Knowledge beyond folders. Put content in context with Sharepoint integration. 

Sharepoint offers companies an easy to use file repository. But users mention difficulties in accessing and collaborating on content. 

  • Use the OneDrive and Sharepoint integrations to embed files inside a Story. Put knowledge in context by explaining what a specific document is all about.
  • Add comments, mark the content as up to date and invite colleagues to co-edit it. This brings a whole new layer of collaboration and accuracy, not available in Sharepoint.

Engage everyone around knowledge. Make sure no important update is lost.

Communicating and collaborating in Teams is great. But critical knowledge gets easily lost in #channels. 

  • Set-up the Elium – Teams integration to allow users getting notified whenever new key knowledge is published in Elium. 
  • All key updates from a specific Elium Space can be automatically previewed in an Elium tab set-up inside a Teams channel. 

Why can’t we just use our existing Sharepoint for knowledge sharing?

Sharepoint is a great file repository. But it lacks essential features. Yes, you could try to develop them.
But at what cost for your time, budget and employee engagement? Here is why Elium is a better choice.
