We appreciate the constraints of budgets but also the need to have functional solutions in place. For these reasons we aim to start a solution small but fully formed, growing it is size and maturity over time.
Many traditional IT consulting companies are experts in building solutions from scratch but they lack the necessary skills to leverage SharePoint’s capabilities. Having this skill-set is essential to know if a business solution can be created through just the configuration of SharePoint. This approach is much more cost effective, reduces ongoing support and provides easier upgrades at a later date.
We offer custom consulting services and turnkey solutions based around SharePoint technologies.

1. SET REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS
SharePoint is a very capable platform but it cannot do everything. Talking through its limitations and strengths will ensure a solid solution is scoped fit for purpose.
2. MAP OUT THE ENTIRE SOLUTION
We’ll work with you to plan out the entire solution. SharePoint integrates into other systems and processes. Understanding how these interact may change the approach.
3. PLAN THE DELIVERY PHASES
Large SharePoint projects may best be broken into smaller phases, each with its own plan and set of deliverables.
4. START SMALL, BUT FULLY FUNCTIONAL
Prototypes are a great way to test SharePoint functionality. Functionality can be validate within a small group before wider company deployment.
5. CONFIGURE, RATHER THAN DEVELOP
SharePoint has hundreds of configurable capabilities. Our preference is to make use of these where possible.
6. QUALITY THIRD PARTY PRODUCTS
Where requirements can’t be configured or quickly developed, we partner with some great 3rd parties to extend SharePoint’s capabilities.
