What is Hosted SharePoint?
Hosted SharePoint is an incredibly flexible online collaboration tool that can be used as a place to store, share, organise and access your business data from any Desktop or mobile device that uses an internet browser. SharePoint can also be used to Host and maintain your business website.
Hosted SharePoint Consultancy
We offer strategic Consultancy services to Organisations that are looking to introducing SharePoint to their business for the first time.
A Microsoft SharePoint expert will conduct an initial Consultation session with you so we can fully understand your key business challenges and determine if Hosted SharePoint is the right solution to meet these challenges.
We will then create a detailed report that provides an honest assessment of our findings and our recommendations for moving forward.
We will only move onto the planning and deployment stages once all parties are in full agreement that Hosted SharePoint is the right solution for your business.
