It is currently estimated to have approximately 190 million users, working across 200,000 customer organisations. And there is good reason that so many businesses choose to take this path.
The value of the SharePoint system can be found in its ability to help businesses track progress and share information across their employee base. Its collaborative capabilities, coupled with its document management system, makes it perfect for teams that are working together to produce common workloads.
What Are SharePoint Consultants?
At Silver Limes, we offer consultancy services for systems such as SharePoint, Office 365, Power BI and Azure. But what does a SharePoint Consultant actually do?
A consultant of this type has one simple aim in mind: to help you improve your business processes using microsoft technologies. This is done in a number of ways, each of which will suit a different kind of business.
So, it is important to tell your consultant exactly what you think you need help with. Be it the configuration or maintenance of your systems, an expert will offer advice that is aimed towards helping you to outline the challenges you are facing and what you are going to do to resolve them.
The Role Of A SharePoint Consultant
The easiest way to think of the work required from a SharePoint consultant is to imagine them bridging the gap between what you want your business to achieve and expert knowledge of your platforms.
If you are in the beginning stages of setting up your Microsoft systems, a consultant may help you choose the systems that would suit your needs. Or, if you have defined this previously, you may want an expert to help you strategise on your goals and needs over the course of the next 5 years.
Silver Limes Consultancy
So you’ve heard a little more about what SharePoint consultants are supposed to do, and we thought we’d share a little more about our work specifically. We work using the MoSCow Method, a system by which we define what you are looking for by asking four simple questions: what are your must haves, should haves, could haves and won’t haves?
In doing this, we are able to begin your project with a detailed brief that’ll tell us exactly what we need to focus on. And then the work well and truly begins! Our next steps are dependent on the scope of work necessary for your business. We offer high-level and low-level design work. Each will discuss the design of your solution, but are necessary at different times during your project.
On top of this, our consultants offer project milestones throughout the length of your project, be it the design or testing phase. We pride ourselves on being available for any questions or queries you may have, regardless of whether you are at the start or end of your journey. If you are looking to make the most of your Microsoft platforms, give our team a call on 0116 319 4402, and start your journey to business processes that work for you!
