SharePoint 2013

SharePoint 2013 is an enterprise collaboration environment that transforms the way businesses connect people, content and data, increasing the efficiency of business processes. More than 78 percent of Fortune 500 companies use SharePoint for collaboration, but organizations of all sizes can use this on-premises platform to deliver the right information to the right person at the right time.

Portal Solutions has been developing, implementing and customizing SharePoint solutions since early 2002, giving us over a decade of experience designing and building custom solutions. When you partner with Portal Solutions, you’re working with SharePoint experts and innovators who are dedicated to your success. We follow the latest best practices, helping your organization to streamline communication, enhance collaboration and increase visibility.

Benefits Of SharePoint 2013 On-Premises

SharePoint 2013 provides secure, personalized access to your business documents and other information. Many companies have compliance requirements that they store their data in specific locations, while others are not ready to trust their critical business information to a cloud-based content management system. The on-premises security of SharePoint 2013 makes it an ideal choice for these organizations.

With SharePoint 2013, we’ll show you how to drive productivity and collaboration in your organization by configuring features that help your users find content quickly and efficiently, regardless of the data’s physical location. SharePoint’s additional features and capabilities include enterprise content management, business intelligence, enterprise search, personal sites and newsfeeds.

We also develop SharePoint solutions that incorporate enterprise search and business intelligence, as well as third-party applications that address everything from content migration to workflow automation.

SharePoint Online

SharePoint Online is a cloud-based version of the collaboration platform, hosted by Microsoft. It delivers the powerful features of an on-premises SharePoint platform without the associated overhead of installing, deploying and managing the infrastructure on-premises, making it easy and cost-effective for organizations of any size to share documents and information with colleagues, partners and customers.

You may have explored implementing SharePoint across your organization in the past, but were concerned about the overall cost and complexity. The good news is now you don’t have to be a Fortune 500 company to have access to cutting-edge solutions that will help you deliver the right information to the right person at the right time — at an acceptable cost.

SharePoint Online’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud model means that Microsoft hosts your application and data, instead of having to purchase, implement and maintain your own servers. For many organizations, this solution greatly reduces costs for infrastructure and frees up your IT team to focus on activities that create business value.

Portal Solutions has over a decade of experience with developing, implementing and customizing SharePoint solutions, and we recommend SharePoint Online to many of our clients. By moving content management to the cloud, it’s easy for users to access their documents and data from any device, at any time of the day, improving employee productivity and streamlining collaboration.

Benefits Of SharePoint Online

With SharePoint Online, which is available as part of the Office 365 cloud productivity suite, you get powerful tools for enterprise content management, business intelligence, enterprise search and the ability to create personal sites and newsfeeds. And with the rapid pace of Microsoft’s free updates to its cloud platforms, you’ll never have to migrate your enterprise content again.

Here are some of the key benefits of moving to SharePoint Online:

  • Easy, low-cost implementation
  • No IT expertise or servers
  • Powerful collaboration and file-sharing tools that were once only affordable for big businesses
  • Mobile anytime, anywhere access from your smartphone, tablet and mobile devices with Internet connection
  • Productivity-boosting tools that encourage employee collaboration, knowledge-sharing and workflows
  • Scalable technology that adjusts as your business needs change
  • Customization options to refine the out-of-the-box platform for business solutions
  • Disaster protection through redundant data backups
  • Free, automatic updates, including security patches
  • No need to postpone upgrades due to costs, reducing downtime and security risks

Office 365

With Office 365, Microsoft’s cloud-based productivity suite, you get the familiar Microsoft Office desktop tools as well as Exchange Online, Skype for Business and SharePoint Online. This bundled services suite delivers a vastly improved user experience at lower per-user cost, helping businesses of all sizes save time and money and free up valuable resources.

Office 365 offers additional cloud productivity tools, including OneDrive for Business and Yammer, in a seamless work environment that helps your users stay productive from virtually any location.

Drawing on over 10 years of experience and hundreds of deployments, Portal Solutions works with your team to determine the best approach to meet your specific needs and come up with a game plan to design, configure and accelerate the deployment of your Office 365 solution.

Benefits Of Office 365

Office 365 is built on the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud model, in which Microsoft hosts your application and data. For many organizations, this solution greatly reduces costs for infrastructure and frees up your IT team to focus on activities that create business value.
