Nashville, Tenn. (PRWEB) August 26, 2014
On Sept. 3, PremierPoint Solutions will host a free one-hour webinar that explains and demonstrates a proven tool for making the extranet secure and easy, with affordable access and collaboration available from virtually anywhere in the world.
The webinar is titled “Making SharePoint Extranet Collaboration and Management Secure, Easy and Affordable,” and it includes a question and answer period.
Johnathan Horton, who handles commercial software engineering and support for PremierPoint Solutions, will lead the technical portion. Randy Moody, the company’s customer service manager, will serve as moderator.
“Microsoft SharePoint provides a good platform for extranet collaboration, but out of the box it does not give users the tools they need to use and manage extranets well,” Horton said.
“Our add-on solution, Extranet Collaboration Manager for SharePoint (ExCM), simplifies and streamlines the deployment, management and use of SharePoint extranets. ExCM has all the necessary tools for secure, easy and affordable extranet management and use,” he added.
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.
“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. ExCM is a product that simplifies every aspect of that process,” Moody said.
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.
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.
“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 Moody.
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.
All of its features are accessible from within SharePoint itself, so there is no proprietary interface or separate program to learn.
