Team Portal -- the New Way to Host SharePoint

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - March 3, 2008) - NetConnect launches Team Portal -- a completely new way to host Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 applications and templates by simplifying the management and provisioning of Office SharePoint Server 2007 sites, users and roles. Team Portal is a new web portal for businesses seeking to improve teamwork and collaboration with customers and partners.

"NetConnect's innovative team has put them at the forefront of the Unified Communications market. As collaborative solutions become more and more converged, NetConnect continues to offer its clients up-to-date and progressive technology such as Office SharePoint Server 2007 based Web portals with integrated conferencing," says Larry Velez, Director, Unified Communications Incubation Sales EMEA in Microsoft.

Team Portal

The service gives the manager of a team and the team members an efficient tool to gain control of information and tasks for the teamwork. The team manager can choose from a wide range of templates tailored for different types of teamwork. Team templates range from a simple document sharing site, to more comprehensive project templates. Ease of use is a clear focus for the service, making anyone able to work in a Web 2.0 environment. Team Portal offers integrated real-time collaboration with Microsoft Office Live Meeting including audio and video conferencing.

Team Portal Marketplace

With a rapid growing community of Office SharePoint Server 2007 developers and professionals, NetConnect sees the need for a marketplace where SharePoint Server 2007 solutions can be submitted and distributed in a hosted environment that standardizes administration and user experience. Team Portal introduces such a marketplace. BrightWork is one of the first partners entering this marketplace, offering both simple and comprehensive project management tools with the pmPoint portfolio.

"The service will be offered globally as we expand our business and partnerships. Having been many years in the business of Web Conferencing and Web Hosting, we know how businesses improve efficiency when they collaborate using the Web. This is an insight that has been applied when developing the Team Portal," says Rolf Larsen, CEO NetConnect Holding AS.
