SWC Launches New Online Design Portfolio Focused On Microsoft SharePoint Solutions

November 4, 2013   //   News

SWC’s Design Portfolio is a Result of a Proprietary Envisioning Process and Methodology that Provides Clients with Initial Value, User Adoption and a Solid Foundation for Growth and Success.

IT Consultancy, SWC Technology Partners, Inc. announces a new online Microsoft SharePoint design portfolio showcasing solutions that are easy to use, engaging and increase user adoption.

SWC has been working with Microsoft SharePoint since the product’s inception in 2001 and has significant experience successfully deploying SharePoint solutions for hundreds of organizations. The product is by far Microsoft’s most successful platform and considered by Gartner to be one of the leading search, portal and content management solutions available in today’s market.

SWC’s unique approach and skill set has helped establish the firm as one of the most experienced and sought after SharePoint consultants in the Midwest. Today SWC leverages this extensive experience through its proprietary envisioning process that assists clients in deploying the right SharePoint solution to meet business objectives and get the most out of their IT investment.

“SharePoint is one of the most powerful productivity platforms in business,” says Jeff Lanham, Principal SharePoint Consultant at SWC. “The product is so robust, that it’s hard for clients to know where to begin and what features and capabilities to deploy. The SWC SharePoint design portfolio is a visual and intuitive way to show clients SWC’s ability to bring together all of the important stakeholders in an organization and leverage our expertise to then facilitate and design a custom solution that is well architected and has an engaging user experience, which we have found is critical to SharePoint success.”

Unlike traditional SharePoint consulting firms, SWC’s in-house digital design division, launched as an extension of SWC’s core technology solution portfolio, develops Microsoft SharePoint sites that drive user adoption by delivering a visually compelling, time-saving and high-value user experience. The design team works in conjunction with the software development team to ensure the SharePoint environment the customer envisions throughout the process can actually be created and more importantly created within the client’s budget. Business process consultants and user enablement trainers monitor the solution and process, every step of the way to make sure it will bring value and work well for the business. The end result is refined creative branding assets, a high-level functional and technical architecture with an implementation roadmap and plan that will enable users to work smarter, faster and more efficiently.

“SWC helped us envision and deploy a SharePoint solution that we are excited about and enjoy using,” said Jennifer Nolan at UHC. “, SWC was able to bring together multiple groups and constituents to solve problems and create a vision for a successful solution. The result is a creative and functional workspace for employees and affiliates of UHC that makes finding the information we need and doing our jobs easier.”

The SharePoint envisioning process is part of a larger set of intellectual property and thought leadership assets SWC has created around their proven methodology for successfully deploying Microsoft SharePoint solutions, called the SWC SharePoint Way. The SWC SharePoint Way realizes there are many factors that need to be considered as part of any SharePoint implementation and most organizations need to work with an experience consultant to conceive a well thought deployment plan to ensure the product’s success. The SWC SharePoint Way focuses on three major areas – understanding needs and the business challenges SharePoint will solve; the technical and visual solution design; and delivering on the promise or helping clients manage and maintain their site, so that they get the most value out of their solution.
