Microsoft SharePoint: A Collaboration Space For Partner Companies


Since the introduction of SharePoint 2016, the industry has been buzzing about how much easier and better digital collaboration has become, especially between partner companies. Here’s an example of how two large pharmaceutical companies are using SharePoint as a collaboration space for their joint drug development projects:

Each organization had its own validated electronic document management systems (EDMS) in-house, but neither could determine a cost-effective and secure way to share its system with the other without undermining the validated state. So, they turned to SharePoint.

The partners set up a self-managed collaboration environment in a secure cloud so that employees of both companies could author, edit, and discuss submission documents. As a result of the SharePoint space, the partners were able to complete their European submission ahead of schedule. And they found the space so easy to learn that they began granting access to third party vendors, resulting in even greater efficiencies.
