ExCM improves SharePoint’s out-of-the-box extranet capabilities, making collaboration easier for extranet users and relieving the IT staff of the most cumbersome aspects of administrating a SharePoint extranet.
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) March 27, 2014
On April 2 at 11 a.m. EDT, PremierPoint Solutions will host a free one-hour webinar introducing a total extranet solution that can simplify and streamline the deployment, management and use of SharePoint extranets.
The webinar, “Making SharePoint Extranet Collaboration and Management Secure, Easy and Affordable,” will explain how Microsoft SharePoint provides a very capable platform for extranet collaboration, but is missing the tools necessary to use and manage it well.
The webinar will then offer an integrated SharePoint add-on solution, Extranet Collaboration Manager for SharePoint (ExCM), which provides the necessary tools for secure, easy and affordable extranet management and use – the tools not present in SharePoint out of the box. It also will include a question and answer period.
In a nutshell, 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.
While SharePoint gives users many of the basic capabilities necessary for extranet collaboration, it lacks important tools that SharePoint administrators need to establish and maintain the collaboration environment. ExCM fills that gap.
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.
The webinar hosts are Johnathan Horton, who handles commercial software engineering and support for PremierPoint Solutions, and Randy Moody, the company’s customer service manager.
Horton, who will lead the technical portion of the webinar, serves as the first line of customer support for PremierPoint Solutions’ commercial software division. His main focus is getting the right technology in place and functioning so that customers can focus on their business instead of their technology.
He has nine years of support desk and customer support experience in the financial services industry. While working as a computer technician for Wilson Bank & Trust, Horton was one of two support desk technicians who provided IT support to more than 400 bank associates located in 27 facilities. At Citivas Bankgroup, his role as systems administrator made him the primary contact for all employee support needs.
“ExCM improves SharePoint’s out-of-the-box extranet capabilities, making collaboration easier for extranet users and relieving the IT staff of the most cumbersome aspects of administrating a SharePoint extranet,” Moody said.
“Because ExCM integrates right into SharePoint, all of its features are accessible from within SharePoint itself, so there is no separate program or proprietary interface to learn,” he added.
