I’m very proud to announce the launch of Fpweb.net’s SharePoint Solution Showcase, your one stop shop for a variety of product solutions that enhance your SharePoint environment and your SharePoint investment!
Having worked in the SharePoint community for over 10 years now, I’ve had the privilege of working for and with some of the most innovative product companies. Each one has excelled within their own niche to make the SharePoint platform just a little better.
These add-ons and third party web parts have made life a lot easier for organizations that prefer to adopt the buy vs. build approach. They seek out the SharePoint solutions that continue to add value by upgrading right along with their versioning upgrades, and they save valuable time and resources from updating code.
The SharePoint Community is one of many where organizations are outsourcing their IT needs to keep agile and control costs. When you purchase software products and keep current on your support and maintenance, that is typically the greatest value, yet extremely undervalued (in my opinion).
Nevertheless, even businesses that are looking to add SharePoint solutions to their current investment have to know where to look. And in my experience, locating those products (and, even more so, solutions and organizations that you can trust) can often times be overwhelming.
The SharePoint Solution Showcase
Now all of the great SharePoint products that can take your business to the next level are in one easy to navigate directory that even lets you launch live demos right from the showcase.
Think of this way: You’ve already invested in SharePoint as a platform, but have you considered all the ways that you can be leveraging that investment? It’s much more than a document repository. Are you using the social capabilities built in – but enhanced and extended by products such as Pulse and Hoozin? Are you using the Help Desk capabilities built in – but enhanced and extended by products such as Visual SP and Content Panda? Are you using protecting and securing your SharePoint assets with products from CipherPoint and SpearTip?
It’s the Best of SharePoint, All In One Place!
Thanks to the great marketing team behind me at Fpweb.net and the fabulous SharePoint partner community, I’m very excited to launch this asset to the SharePoint user community. Besides being a repository for great products and free demos, the showcase will feature a different partner product each month and cast a spotlight on their great services.
On stage this month is Metavis Technologies. Metavis is a longtime partner to Fpweb.net and provides the tools we use to remove the complexity and accelerate the migration needs of our customers. They also have a suite of products that enable information-driven organizations to know their content, aka Information Management. The best way to think about Information Management is that it’s a blue-print – a way to organize your information so it’s easy to find by the right people.
Your Trusted SharePoint Advisor
As a dedicated SharePoint hosting provider and the next best thing to an on-premises deployment (SIDE NOTE: Who doesn’t want to offload the burden of hardware refreshes and have the exact same access to your servers that you’re used to on-premises – all while maintaining your ability of customizations and integration?), we have direct access to many of these products. What that means: With the click of a button, we can get these products installed and up and running in your environment in hours instead of days.
The SharePoint Solution Showcase Will Keep Growing!
If there is SharePoint product you are using and you can’t live without it and we don’t have it included in the Showcase, I’d love to hear about it! Put it in the comments below or contact me please.
Also, be sure to check out The SharePoint Solution Showcase often, because we will continue to add SharePoint products and solutions to enhance your environment and improve the ROI around the platform.
It just got easier to shop for the SharePoint services your company needs!
