Microsoft® SharePoint Consultancy and Development

Assistance on-demand

We take the pain out of managing user permissions, enhancing content and features, and maintaining an engaging and useful SharePoint intranet. SharePoint consulting means we become your SharePoint Administrator, helping you create and maintain your collaborative intranet. Whether it be by analysing your current SharePoint sites, developing enhancements, adding users to permission groups, or coaching you as we develop to increase your skillset – we’ll add value to your IT spend and ensure your staff get the most from their intranet experience.
