Rockville, MD (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
Portal Solutions (http://www.portalsolutions.net), a technology consulting firm that provides digital workplace solutions, today announces its ten year anniversary, grand opening of its Microsoft Experience Center (MEC) and its expanded services to help organizations realize a richer digital workplace.
Ten years ago, Portal Solutions was founded with a single focus in mind, delivering customized Microsoft SharePoint solutions. Over the years, the company expanded on that legacy to develop solutions that incorporate enterprise search, business intelligence, and a multitude of third party applications. A decade later, Portal Solutions increases its breadth of services beyond SharePoint. The company now provides strategy, planning and design for the entire suite of Microsoft’s productivity and collaboration tools now available online through the Office 365 solution.
“Although SharePoint is still a critical component for collaboration and enterprise content management we also understand that taking a broader view of the tools, services, and devices available to employees is required,” says Daniel Cohen-Dumani, CEO and founder of Portal Solutions. “Our focus is on designing solutions that deliver a superior user experience and allow employees to better serve their customers by quickly and easily accessing highly relevant information regardless of location or device.”
Part of the company’s digital workplace push includes opening a Microsoft Experience Center (MEC) at its headquarters in Maryland. The MEC provides a facilitated hands-on environment for customers to experience Microsoft’s Business Productivity Platform along with a variety of mobile devices and mobile headset and speaker equipment. It is not a demo but a true-to-life user experience that takes customer through common work-related scenarios such as being productive when outside the office, using communication tools to get answers fast, and connecting in real time with coworkers and customers. Sessions are led by a trained facilitator and are designed to be interactive and fun. Customers are under no sales pressure and can ‘test drive’ the latest tools and devices to understand what is possible with respect improving the employee experience and delivering a true digital workplace.
“We firmly believe we have arrived at an inflection point where the previous ‘digital’ hype is now reality, where the low cost/high performance solutions and devices first available in the consumer space are now taking hold in the enterprise,” says Cohen-Dumani. “Customers can now experience these powerful tools at our MEC.”
As more organizations empower cloud services, mobile devices, and collaboration technology, employees will have event greater flexibility to work remotely without feeling disconnected. “We see the digital workplace as a place where employees are able to quickly and easily share what they know and find what they need through a consistent, intuitive interface regardless of their physical location or type of device,” comments Cohen-Dumani.
To support the roll-out of its MEC, Portal Solutions launched a new blog, Digital Workplace Today, to inform and share practical tools and tips to help organizations better understand the digital workplace. Cohen-Dumani comments, “Company culture, business objectives and expectations can vary. Creating a digital workplace unique to an organization is critical.”
The company branded its Microsoft Experience Center, ‘DWX,’ for the ultimate Digital Workplace Experience. To set up a private session, please contact Jenny Lynch at 703-639-7738.
