While analyzing the client’s previous system, we found that it was completely outdated and lacked the latest features and functionalities. Previously, the client was using excel sheets to maintain their data and it required a lot of manual data entry work which was tedious and time-consuming. Here are some of the challenges that our experts inspected in the project:
- In an excel sheet, only one person can access and edit the data at a time, without or being sent a copy of it
- The old data management system did not possess any built-in, automatic audit tracking function. For instance, who accessed the data last, who did what, and when to the spreadsheet?
- Also, the excel sheet did not have any log of change. As values, calculations, source data change, the sheet does not manage the previous value for auditing or control
- As the data was stored manually, there was a high risk of data loss due to natural or man-made calamities like flood or fire
- In addition, the old data management system lacked a data backup and recovery process
- When the data file is too large, it became difficult for the client to manage the excel sheet
- Due to a high volume of data, it can make the excel sheet run slowly, especially if all the data is stored in one file

After a brainstorming session, our experts concluded that clients need the latest data management system which can help them in storing, retrieving, and managing the data. Our experts suggested the client adopt the latest SharePoint 365 for upgrading their data management system.
- Using SharePoint, employees of Discovery Tours can easily remain connected while being able to share files and update throughout the centralized data management system
- It also enabled clients with real-time streaming of information allowing more ease in accessing and sharing information within an organization
- Moreover, SharePoint allows deeper control and comprehensive mechanism to monitor the whole platform
- It also comes with robust security and integrity features. The integrated security features of SharePoint helped client securing their data from all kinds of unauthorized access
- One of the biggest benefits that the client got from adopting Microsoft SharePoint 365 is that it is based on the cloud. This means the client can access their data on the go anytime, anywhere
- With the help of One Drive for Business, it allowed the client to save and sync files to SharePoint Online, essentially uploading them to the cloud

Cloud data storage
Experts at KCS helped the client to adopt SharePoint 365 and upgrade its data management system. SharePoint 365 helped employees of Discovery Tours to work collaboratively on the same document at the same time that saved generating multiple versions and getting a real-time update of the data. It also enabled the client with a live feed of who is accessing the document and see the changes made to the files. One Drive reduced the need for local storage space and assured the client can access data wherever and whenever required.
- Migrating the client’s manual document management system to SharePoint 365 helped them to streamline their data management process
- Using SharePoint 365, users are now able to work collaboratively on the same files or documents at the same time that saved a lot of time and chances of generating multiple copies of the same
