“IBSM365 with SP Marketplace provides an integral service to extend the value of Office 365. The power of productivity in Office 365 can be greatly enhanced..." Ray Meiring, CEO of Qorus

Qorus Software, a global provider of SharePoint document automation software, extends their partnership with SP Marketplace (SharePoint Marketplace) a leader in Office 365 business applications. SP Marketplace announced an Integrated Business Solution Model (IBSM365) which integrates desperate SharePoint Apps into an overall SharePoint solution site structure in the context of a business operation. With experience from over 500 small to medium business deployments, SP Marketplace has defined an Integration model which integrates an Intranet Portal Structure and Office 365 apps to provide out-of-the-box business solutions on Office 365.
Model moves the platform from App components to Integrated Business Solutions
Like Apple Apps, Microsoft’s App model is great from a technological architecture perspective, allowing developers to easily create tools and functional components which are then placed in a catalog. Hundreds of Apps are now available on the Office 365 catalog. While the model works well for consumer personal use, businesses require solutions that share data across functions, and deliver a navigation scheme that is in the context of the organizational structure. Apps by themselves do not deliver this.
“Imagine the frustration of an employee trying to find the time-off app across 300 app icons in your organization,” states Darrell Trimble, CEO of SP Marketplace. “Give them an intuitive structure, such as an Intranet Portal structure where time off requests are easily located in the Employee-Self-Service portal via the Intranet Home page. Time-off may be an App, but it plugs into the overall structure provided by SP Business Suite. IBSM365 leverages the best of the Office 365 Platform, leveraging SharePoint Online and Apps.”
“IBSM365 with SP Marketplace provides an integral service to extend the value of Office 365. The power of productivity in Office 365 can be greatly enhanced with the ability to tailor to the individual needs of businesses through the integration of key apps. SP Business Suite empowers organizations to maximize the value of their O365 investment,” comments Ray Meiring, CEO Qorus Software
The Integrated Business Solution Model includes:
- An Intranet Portal Structure built and delivered via a SharePoint Online site structure
- Pre-built business solution sites such as HR, IT, Sales, Marketing, Facilities, Customer Service and more
- Office 365 App components which plug into appropriate solution sites
- Pre-defined App guidelines for data sharing or templates.
- Best Practices for Integrated Solution setup and deployment
