In as little as a few days,
you can turn on a ready to roll intranet for Microsoft SharePoint and Office 365
that's packed with the core functionality all organizations need to drive
communication, collaboration and engagement with employees.
35% of employees typically don't use their corporate
intranet, often because it's difficult to find the useful content buried behind
a clunky interface and weak search capabilities. Our goal was to build a digital
workspace that everyone uses. We tapped our many years of Microsoft development
experience to create a feature set that accelerates productivity and engages
people across all industries and departments – from executives to HR,
Communications, Sales, Support, IT and more. To get results fast, reduce your risk, and get the most from your SharePoint investment, let our team help you by using our proven best practices to guide your success.

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.
