Dynamic Owl Rethinks the SharePoint Intranet With The Launch of Bonzai

Companies can now turn on a full featured, ready-made Intranet for Microsoft™ SharePoint® within weeks at a fraction of the cost of a built-from scratch solution.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 9, 2014) - Dynamic Owl, the highly-respected Microsoft SharePoint consultancy, today announced that it has launched Bonzai Intranet for SharePoint. Bonzai is a pre-built Intranet for Microsoft SharePoint that draws business value out of a company's existing platform investment by providing the core Intranet functionality needed by most organizations, without the complexity, cost and risk associated with a custom-built solution. The ready-made intranet is beautifully designed, feature rich, easy to use, fast to turn on, and comes with the flexibility to address unique company needs via configuration.

Built on Microsoft SharePoint 2013, the collaboration and document management platform used by most Fortune 500 companies, Bonzai is the result of a re-thinking of SharePoint Intranet development that began with the premise that it wasn't necessary to start from scratch. "We've been building custom SharePoint solutions for enterprise organizations for years," said Michal Pisarek, Founder at Dynamic Owl. "We couldn't help but notice that in spite of each company's unique business model and processes, there's an awful lot of similarity between their Intranet needs. We asked ourselves why anyone would choose to build a custom SharePoint intranet with all the complexity involved, if they could get eighty percent their needs addressed on day one."

Bonzai also eliminates the need for companies committed to the SharePoint platform to look for intranet alternatives -- previously a common path for those wanting to swiftly deploy an intranet, but lacking the in-house expertise and large budget required. With minimal involvement from IT pre and post-deployment, Bonzai allows organizations to quickly turn on an easy-to-manage intranet that leverages their existing investment in the powerful Microsoft platform.

The Bonzai architecture is flexible enough to bring each company's unique way of doing things into play. Customization typically makes up only a small portion of the overall Bonzai site feature set, making it fast and cost-effective to turn on one of the most extraordinary employee collaboration and communication intranets on the SharePoint platform. "Now, there's no need to spend time re-creating known best practices for content, design and usability," said Michal. "Bonzai accelerates the discussion to focus on what's unique to each business, eliminating steep upfront development costs and year-long launch timeframes."

Bonzai's core feature set is designed to provide the essential intranet functionality needed by most organizations, across all industries, including news feeds, employee and location directories, event listings, image galleries, links to frequently used applications, forms and documents, a marketplace, and more. Bonzai also includes social engagement tools such as real-time commenting to cultivate the corporate community and foster internal interaction.


Bonzai was created by the experts at Dynamic Owl -- a Microsoft SharePoint consultancy and Certified Microsoft Gold Partner with multiple SharePoint MVPs on staff. By leveraging the power of the SharePoint platform, Bonzai makes built-from-scratch and SharePoint intranet alternatives a thing of the past.
