VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - March 12, 2014) - Softlanding Network Solutions Inc., an enterprise SharePoint solutions and managed services firm, today announced broad availability of SharePoint QuickWin for Office 365. SharePoint QuickWin is a fixed cost, packaged offering that enables Office 365 subscribers to quickly gain value from the SharePoint component of Office 365.
A large percentage of organizations begin their transition to Microsoft's Office 365 cloud platform by starting with email services first. The Office 365 online conferencing and instant messaging features typically follow and are intuitive enough that most people can use them almost immediately with minimal training. However, gaining meaningful business value from SharePoint in Office 365 is not as straightforward.
"We see a lot of organizations getting value from the latest Office applications and moving their email infrastructure to the cloud, but most are not sure where to even start when it comes to SharePoint," said Shaun Roberts, President of Softlanding. "We see SharePoint as the business productivity cornerstone of Office 365. Organizations are missing a tremendous opportunity when it either isn't used at all or it just gets turned on and tossed to users without planning or alignment to their business."
SharePoint QuickWin leverages knowledge and best practices evolved over many years of successful SharePoint on-premises implementations in a condensed format well suited to the more rapid use nature and expectations of Software/Platform as a Service solutions. The 5 step QuickWin engagement provides orientation, planning, implementation/configuration, training and an allocation of post "go live" support through Softlanding's SharePointROI managed support and sustainment service. Most organizations are up and running in as little as 2 weeks.
"The QuickWin package allowed our organization to transition almost seamlessly into the cloud," said Joshua Jackson, a Project Coordinator with AMBiT Consulting Inc. in Vancouver. "Training was provided for each role and support was available post project," continues Jackson, "It gave us the jumpstart we needed and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the package to any small or medium sized business looking to quickly collaborate more effectively."
