Ascendum’s SharePoint practice breaks the mold to provide unique and effective services and delivery methods for the SharePoint and Office 365 platforms. We deliver a well-defined foundation for Microsoft SharePoint architecture, migration, governance, deployment and identify the most appropriate solution to suit your needs.

We have 2 goals.  

  1. We want to make you a hero to your organization.

  2. We want your employees to get the true long term benefits of the SharePoint platform.

We find most organizations spend a lot of money on SharePoint and end up with a result not much better than the file shares they started with. 

Here is the problem with most consulting companies

Their goal is to sign you up for a big project, execute it and move on to the next one. The big expert you met when they were selling the deal isn’t the one that’s going to work your project.

We don’t think most SharePoint work can be treated like a standard development project. A quality intranet is a fluid, dynamic entity that requires ongoing support, constant refinement, and governance to be successful. Bringing in a legion of experts to build it as one big application and then move on doesn’t work.

What do employees want?

  1. Quick, reliable access to relevant information that is often buried in digital haystacks.
  2. Access on any device. Anywhere. All the time.
  3. Applications and work processes that save them time and reduce repetitive, manual effort.
  4. Skills to use the new tools and support when needed.

How do we provide it?

  1. Experience helping you build your SharePoint sites the right way to get maximum value
  2. Administration skills to keep the service running smoothly
  3. Ongoing training, onshore helpdesk and other efforts to ensure user adoption
  4. Rapid development of applications to support specific organization work and process

Here is how we provide it.

  1. For developing SharePoint intranets and portals, our delivery and billing method is a managed monthly service. This give you access to an entire team with a full range of skill sets at all times. The rate is flexible, adjustable and dependent on your needs and timeline.
  2. For specific applications and migrations, we can engage in a more traditional project model where this is more appropriate.

PROJECT CONSULTING

 

For projects requiring custom development, we can provide a more traditional approach where this is appropriate. This includes requirements gathering, project management, development and architecture and QA resources.
