PremierPoint Solutions’ Extranet Collaboration Manager for SharePoint (ExCM) just completed its seventh year of serving as a comprehensive solution to create, secure, manage and streamline the use of SharePoint extranets.
Just six months after its introduction in February 2007, ExCM was named winner of the “Editor’s Best Awards” in the SharePoint award category by Penton Media’s Windows IT Pro magazine. Now in its third version, ExCM has become a trusted and proven product that many companies have come to depend upon to enhance their extranet collaboration.
“ExCM has established itself as the industry leader in powerful, effective SharePoint extranet deployment and management,” said Jeff Cate, president of PremierPoint Solutions. “A major reason for its popularity and staying power is that ExCM makes easy extranet collaboration possible.”
While SharePoint provides many of the raw capabilities necessary for extranet collaboration, it lacks critical tools that SharePoint administrators need to establish and maintain the collaboration environment. That’s where ExCM comes in.
ExCM improves collaboration with individuals outside an organization by providing partners, customers and suppliers with access to important information while still maintaining security.
“ExCM relieves the IT staff of much of the burden of administrating a SharePoint extranet by enabling an administrator to delegate authority to power users designated as ‘site sponsors,’ who can perform routine administrative tasks like sending invitations, adding accounts, unlocking accounts and more,” Cate said.
“The product also empowers an extranet user to do for himself things like signing himself up for an extranet account, resetting his own password, updating his user profile, etc.,” he added.
In its latest version, ExCM for SharePoint Server 2013 and SharePoint Foundation 2013 provides the easy SharePoint extranet collaboration and simplified SharePoint extranet administration that SharePoint 2013 is missing in the out-of-the-box product.
ExCM 2013 is a seamless add-in to SharePoint 2013 that extends and enhances SharePoint’s out-of-the-box extranet capabilities, simplifying SharePoint extranet administration and enabling easy collaboration for extranet users.
It simplifies the extranet user experience while empowering the administrator with effortless control. Because ExCM integrates right into SharePoint 2013, all of its features are accessible from within SharePoint itself, so there is no proprietary interface or separate program to learn.
Through PremierPoint Solutions’ remote extranet installation service, SharePoint extranet experts can have a company’s extranet up and running in just a few hours – quickly, securely and affordably.
