A Brief Introduction to Intranet Document Management and File Sharing

intranet document management system

Computing for both businesses and individuals is becoming more and more decentralized and also more mobile. Your computing needs are not restricted to just your desktop PC or iMac.

Rather, you need access to your workspace and documents from wherever you are … at home, at the office, on the road, or traveling … and on any device … be it your mobile device, phone, tablet, laptop, or something else. This means that your “workspace” needs to be online.

Enter the intranet document management system.

Access to your important files and documents for work need to be online, and while it’s possible for employees to subscribe to a third party site that allows file sharing and document upload, it makes sense for the business to provide employees with a way to upload and manage their documents in their own company intranet.

From a security standpoint, it’s always best to have all your documents somewhere on your own servers or space rather than have them scattered across other 3rd party file sharing sites.

Intranet software, like Communifire, can be used to integrate a collaboration platform, or social intranet, into an organization’s website … and it allows each user to upload their important files and documents to their personal pages within the network.

This way you always have access to your files from anywhere, while they are still securely maintained within your company intranet. Along with discussions, communications, content, and other work material, it’s good to have an intranet document management system that isn’t restricted to a single workstation or machine … and that’s what good social intranet software platforms provide.
