SharePoint 2013 builds on its existing version with emphasis on big data support, public-facing websites and mobile users. SharePoint is used by companies worldwide as a collaboration tool, a centralized intelligence hub and a platform to build applications out and on. Take a look at the ways SharePoint 2013 is evolving businesses:
Working the Social Network
New social features throughout SharePoint help colleagues share ideas, find answers to questions, exchange information, collaborate with others and see what they are working on.
Sharing Made Easy
Content can be published to SP from any Office application and shared with people inside and outside of your organization.
Taking it on the Go
It’s never been easier to share documents, update activity newsfeeds and communicate with colleagues on the go via your mobile phones and tablets.
SharePoint 2013 takes organizing to a new level. Projects and tasks can be organized to maximize visibility of upcoming deliverables throughout SharePoint, Microsoft Project and Outlook.
Connecting Your Team
Keeping your team connected is vital to running a successful business. SharePoint makes this a priority by enabling you to set up new team sites within minutes so you can track meeting notes, and house your teams’ email and documents in one centralized location.
Syncing and Storing Your Docs
With SkyDrive Pro, you can sync content in SharePoint with your desktop making documents just a click away whether you’re on or offline.
Learn about and connect with others in your organization. Discover their interests as well as get a look into their past projects and documents they’ve worked on.
Discovering Answers and Insights
Raw data turns into interactive reports with Excel 2013. Reports can be published directly to SharePoint so you can share data and insights with your co-workers.
Finding What You're Looking For
Your search can be customized and narrowed down to not only deliver more relevant results, but to connect you with human resource recommendations and documents related to the search.
Building Apps in the Cloud
Publishing Apps to the SharePoint Store
Making your apps available for people to try and purchase has never been easier than through SharePoint’s public storefront, or offer your apps exclusively to your employees through your corporate catalog.
Building Great Looking Sites
Sharing who your organization is has never been easier and more effective. By using common design tools and flexible controls, you can create dynamic internet and intranet sites that share your vision and message with everyone.
Managing Your Costs
By running SharePoint in the Cloud with Office 365, you can reduce the cost of your infrastructure and expand the sharing beyond previous boundaries.
Manage risk with new eDiscovery, archiving and case management capabilities that extend across SharePoint, Lync and Exchange.
Managing Your Time
Advances in SharePoint scale allow you to spend less time managing infrastructure and more time delivering innovation through improved performance and management capabilities.
Our Microsoft Case Studies
Here are some of our case studies for Microsoft .
City of Indianapolis MethodFactory implemented Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007, empowering all of the IndyGov departments and agencies to self-manage their own content and deliver it in a timely fashion through an intranet that supports all seven sites. IndyGov.org’s team was given on-site training.
MethodFactory, a certified SDPS partner, suggested that DH Elliot use SharePoint Planning vouchers - earned by purchasing Microsoft Software Assurance, to jumpstart the technical planning process. Upon completion of the initial Microsoft funded high-level functional overview, DH Elliot engaged with MethodFactory for in-depth technical planning.
MethodFactory implemented Microsoft SharePoint and provided the architecture design for the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority, working with HART’s IT department to determine the number of servers they would need, set them up and configure them. This resulted in network architecture that not only accommodates current users, but affords HART the ability to grow its intranet as the organization’s needs change and the volume of users increases.
“MethodFactory has been a pleasure to work with. From design and planning, to development, deployment, and support, they took the time to understand our requirements and implement the Sharepoint solution we had envisioned. We would definitely recommend MethodFactory to any local government looking for help implementing Sharepoint in their enterprise.”
Montgomery County, Alabama
Information Systems Director
Pinellas County JWB needed a system that would improve their process of administering finances/aid to organizations within Pinellas County that serve the welfare of children and families. MethodFactory created a custom workflow in SharePoint that would allow Pinellas County JWB to standardize and automate their process of allocating funds to various agencies.
Southeastern Guide Dogs (SGD) has a sizeable operation with many components and needed an intranet platform that would fully integrate all aspects of their organization. MethodFactory's SharePoint Intranet Accelerator was the right solution: an out-of-the-box, feature-rich offering that covers implementation, design, organization and allows for a quick launch.
