SharePoint is an excellent piece of software which allows businesses to increase efficiency and productivity by streamlining information sharing, internal communications and external communications. All of these factors will help to increase the productivity of your business. Similar products include Source Intranet Software, Vialect Noodle and Claromentis Intranet Manager.
In addition to the standard functionality SharePoint can be adapted to fully streamline the way your business operates. This composites function is what will enable your business to get ahead of your competition and truly differentiate yourself in a competitive market. This is where you may require SharePoint services. Due to the customisability there are a multitude of services available to your business.
Consultancy services involve an expert assessing your business requirements and current system functionality and making recommendations on the best course of action to maximise the return on investment of the software. If you are considering the investment into information and communication sharing software then consultancy can be invaluable for understanding exactly how you will benefit from it and the best way to introduce the software to your network and migrate over to it.
When installing new software on your servers there are so many considerations to factor in. Compatibility, configuration and security are possibly the three most important. Specialist installation services can be invaluable in ensuring that this process happens seamlessly. After making the investment in the software, a little extra in order to make sure it works properly is essential.
If you are introducing SharePoint to your network for the first time then training is vital for your IT team and staff. You will only reap the benefits which the software offers if your staff know how to use it properly and have the confidence to do so.
Ongoing support is another key service when making such a large investment in software which is or will become the core of your business operations. How would your business cope if the system became corrupted? Only an ongoing support package can ensure that you will be able to use the system whenever you may need it.
To a certain extent SharePoint is relatively easy to customise and can generate branded websites, intranets and extranets. However, there is the potential to achieve so much more if you have the right know-how. Therefore, development services are great once you have reached the point where you cannot do anything more with the system yourself.
