“Making SharePoint Extranet Collaboration and Management Secure, Easy and Affordable,” a free one-hour webinar about a comprehensive solution for simplifying SharePoint extranet management, will be held Aug. 13 at 11 a.m. Eastern Time. There also will be a question and answer period.
Hosted by PremierPoint Solutions, a leading developer of high-quality commercial software add-ons for SharePoint, the webinar will demonstrate a proven tool for making the extranet secure and easy, with affordable access and collaboration available from virtually any place in the world.
Customers, employees, partners and vendors enjoy being able to have on-demand access to the information they need from wherever they happen to be, which is why using SharePoint as an extranet platform has become so popular.
An extranet is like an intranet that can be accessed from the Internet. It provides convenience and flexibility that everybody likes – saving time and money by cutting down on phone calls, email and endless searching through paper file folders.
Extranet Collaboration Manager for SharePoint (ExCM) is a product that simplifies every aspect of that process, providing the extranet management tools that SharePoint is missing out of the box.
While SharePoint is built for collaboration and contains built-in collaboration tools, IT pros who attempt to implement SharePoint as an extranet quickly find out there are many hurdles to overcome, including having the appropriate tools to use and manage it well.
PremierPoint Solutions’ ExCM, an integrated SharePoint add-on solution, provides the tools that are absent in SharePoint out of the box but are absolutely necessary to facilitate secure, easy and affordable extranet management and use.
“From easy account management, to administrative task delegation, to user self-service, to iron-clad security, ExCM really makes SharePoint extranet use and management a breeze,” said Randy Moody, PremierPoint Solutions’ customer service manager and moderator of the webinar.
According to Moody, ExCM creates, secures, manages and streamlines the use of SharePoint 2010 and 2013 extranets. Now in its third release, this award-winning product has become the industry standard in powerful, streamlined SharePoint extranet management and use.
All of its features are accessible from within SharePoint itself, so there is no proprietary interface or separate program to learn.
With ExCM, administrators are empowered to delegate authority to power users designated as “site sponsors” who can perform routine administrative tasks such as sending invitations, adding accounts, unlocking accounts and more.
“ExCM enhances SharePoint’s out-of-the-box extranet capabilities and frees up IT departments so they can focus on advancing technologies instead of having to maintain users and reset passwords,” said Johnathan Horton, who handles commercial software engineering and support for PremierPoint Solutions. He will lead the technical portion of the webinar.
