Team sites enable team members to have access to key project metrics in real-time, such as current budget projects/utilization, the number of roadblocks and live status updates. SharePoint team sites provide insights into the project when you need it most without the need for status meetings or confusing email chains. Ensuring all team members have insights into the project, from the timeline to the budget, ensures that everyone is on the same page and helps to avoid any surprises as the project progresses.
