Austin, TX, and Twyford, Berkshire, England (PRWEB) March 28, 2008
Creative SharePoint, Ltd., a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, today announced the opening of a new office in Austin, Texas. Creative SharePoint (http://www.creative-sharepoint.com) is a unique SharePoint consultancy working hand in hand with a creative design agency, delivering the technological know-how and power of Microsoft's SharePoint product with an artistic flair. Creative SharePoint was recognized as the leading SharePoint VAR in the UK for 2007 and has done work for notable finance giant Barclays Bank, wireless leader O2, and DX, a leading independent provider of business-to-business mail services.
Oliver Stickley, managing director of Creative SharePoint, commented, "The world truly has become very small indeed with the Internet and all of the great communication tools we have at our fingertips. SharePoint is such a fantastic collaboration and business productivity tool and is on the forefront of changing the way we manage our businesses today. It is a pleasure to be able to expand our services to the United States where we have had so many inquiries and requests to help implement and brand SharePoint for business leaders."
The US-based Creative SharePoint business is being directed by Michael Tucker, president, and Susan Booth, chief information officer. Tucker was formerly vice president of sales with TOPAZ Technologies. Booth is the former director of web technology and software development for Hoover's, Inc., a D&B company. "In performing our due diligence with this opportunity, we found that SharePoint is the fastest selling Microsoft product in history," Tucker stated. "It was apparent that over 85% of the contacts we spoke with in the information technology industry were either implementing or planning to implement SharePoint in the next two years. Facts like that made a compelling argument for starting a business to support these efforts."
Booth added, "Microsoft has made an incredible leap in integration of its Office products with the latest SharePoint release, MOSS 2007. After reviewing the success of Creative SharePoint in the UK with these products, we knew that we had a great model and a winning team to build on that success in the US."
Creative SharePoint's Austin-based US offices already has generated interest from across the nation in providing implementation and custom development services to multiple industries.
