Any SharePoint portal and site collection can begin as a basic system of simple sites, core features, and initial parts and content. Over time, that portal foundation can be expanded with custom site templates, advanced features, integrated parts, and robust content, to support not only intranet collaboration but also secure, online interaction with customers, partners, and suppliers via extranet capabilities. Through further expansion the same foundation can also support your public internet and web presence, enabling you to manage your web content as an integrated component of your SharePoint environment.

Second, by partnering with SimplePortals you are assured that the resources working on the project are among the most knowledgeable resources in the world. Let's face it, just about anybody can call themselves a consultant. And, consultants are notorious for "stretching the truth" when it comes to their depth of experience in a given subject area. The consultants from SimplePortals eliminate these risks for you because SharePoint is their total focus and our company is regarded as an authority on SharePoint technologies. In fact, many generalist consulting firms engage us to assist them with SharePoint and use our knowledge transfer so they can work on SharePoint projects with their local clients. So, when it comes to efficiency and SharePoint projects, when you use SimplePortals as your consulting partner, you can be assured that you will get the fastest results, maximum value and lowest risks.
