Many people who work in manufacturing don’t necessarily use computers on a daily basis. Workers need to get their jobs done accurately and efficiently. Having a manufacturing intranet in SharePoint Online can make this a lot easier. SharePoint Online is part of Office 365 which has numerous tools for sharing information with your workforce in the plants.
A key example is being able to rapidly collect and share information with people on their phones. SharePoint Online integrated with Microsoft Forms, which allows people with low technical acumen to create beautiful forms or surveys to gather information, including anonymous surveys. That information can be routed to email notifications, MS Planner tasks, and even Microsoft Teams posts using Power Automate.
