Microsoft SharePoint gives users a good platform for extranet collaboration, but out of the box it does not give them the tools they need to use and manage extranets well.
Nashville, Tenn. (PRWEB) January 05, 2015
“Making SharePoint Extranet Collaboration and Management Secure, Easy and Affordable,” a free one-hour PremierPoint Solutions’ webinar that explores a comprehensive solution for filling gaps in SharePoint extranets, will be held Jan. 7 at 3 p.m. EST.
Johnathan Horton, who handles commercial software engineering and support for PremierPoint Solutions, will host the webinar. During the session he will demonstrate how Extranet Collaboration Manager for SharePoint (ExCM) makes the extranet secure and easy, with affordable access and collaboration available from virtually any place in the world. The webinar includes a question and answer period.
An extranet is like an intranet that can be accessed from the Internet. It provides convenience and flexibility, saving organizations time and money.
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.
While SharePoint is made for collaboration and contains built-in collaboration tools, IT professionals who attempt to implement SharePoint as an extranet out of the box quickly find out there are many hurdles to overcome, and many deficiencies to work around.
PremierPoint Solutions’ ExCM, an integrated SharePoint add-on solution, provides the tools that are absent in SharePoint out of the box but are necessary to facilitate secure, easy and affordable extranet management and use.
“Microsoft SharePoint gives users a good platform for extranet collaboration, but out of the box it does not give them the tools they need to use and manage extranets well,” Horton said.
“Our ExCM add-on solution simplifies and streamlines the deployment, management and use of SharePoint extranets, providing all the necessary tools for secure, easy and affordable extranet management and use,” he added.
ExCM has been used by AT Kearney, Abbott, Dow Chemical, The George W. Bush Presidential Library & Museum, Hanes, Harvard Business School, the NCAA and numerous other organizations worldwide to make extranet collaboration easy and efficient.
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.
