However, to tailor it to the specific needs of your business and support existing process, it needs to be configured to meet your usage and processes. Understanding what it can do for your business and how SharePoint can be configured comes from experience of having upgraded or deployed hundreds of SharePoint solutions.
There are many companies who say they “do” SharePoint, but in many cases they have very little understanding of the full functionality and how to correctly implement it for a specific organisation’s requirements. At igroup we regularly work with businesses who have initially selected what they thought was the right partner only to find that they did not have the right knowledge and experience to ensure SharePoint reaches its business potential.
When your business is in the process of selecting a partner for your SharePoint there are a number of simple checks to ensure you pick the right one:
- Are they a Microsoft Partner? – Microsoft help you to find the right partner by only giving their seal of approval to companies who keep their skills up to date
- Have they deployed SharePoint in different environments? – A partner should have experience of deploying it in the cloud or on premise and know the benefits of each option
- Do they understand your market or organisation type? – Previous experience can help you avoid the same pitfalls and ensure SharePoint is implemented quickly and on budget
- Are their customers happy to recommend them?
At igroup we know that implementing SharePoint for an organisation, whatever the size, can be made much easier if you have the right experts on hand throughout the process. As one of the UK’s leading specialists we are a Microsoft Gold Partner and have upgraded and deployed hundreds of SharePoint environments.
Working together with our expert team will ensure that your SharePoint deployment or upgrade will be done right the first time, stay on budget and deliver the results your business wants.
