Tailoring your platform
SharePoint offers extensive functionality “out of the box”, but it isn’t always easy to find and configure the vast array of features. That’s when you need SharePoint development and customisation.
Tailoring the platform takes experience, and most internal IT departments may have some knowledge of this, but it’s inevitably limited.
Some companies choose the freelancer option and frequently find themselves either incurring further costs after the project has finished, bringing another developer up to speed or even worse, left in the lurch when they move on.
Another common issue choosing a freelancer to manage the project is that they have allowed the solution to be “over” developed, resulting in unsupported changes and larger costs in the future when upgrading or performance impacts.
That’s why it’s important to choose a development partner that you can rely on who can stay with you throughout the life of the platform.
