Considerable investment by Microsoft in the SharePoint solution is resulting in both greater take on of the tool and more substantial benefits from its use; with our customers seeing significant and tangible business improvements.
SharePoint is fundamentally a collaboration platform which we’ve seen can dramatically improve the way businesses store, share and leverage information; and especially integrate it into automated processes and workflows both inside and outside their organisations. Microsoft has really upped its investment in SharePoint in the past couple of years and it now forms a fundamental part of their Office 365 and other cloud-based product offerings.
This means it’s now even easier to connect SharePoint workflows into Office applications as well as Enterprise tools like CRM and ERP. Coupled with the possibility of adding .NET into the mix, it’s really opened up access to much more cost-effective ways to improve internal efficiencies and external differentiators.
We’ve been working with various application development tools for many years now – typically as add-ons to CRM or ERP implementations, or in some cases fully standalone bespoke applications.
What we’ve recently found is that the features of SharePoint are ‘coming of age’ and our Customers in these areas are seeing great downstream benefits. Since we’ve got 10 years of experience of working on enterprise solutions and business process improvement through CRM, ERP and PLM etc., we’re extremely well placed to help identify and exploit opportunities to improve customer business processes.
Linking all this with a proven track record and delivery model, we know we can save you a substantial portion of your development budget.
