Forms and Workflows
Microsoft Office works greart with SharePoint for automating processes. We have worked with many clients in various industries to help improve their processes and help their bottom line. By working togther we can overcome common challenges that many companies have.
- Bottlenecks - the halting or slowing of a process at a some stage due to a human/machine error or difficulty.
- Duplication of work and redundancy – inefficient processes often include sections that are unnecessary or repeated.
- Poor accessibility to key data – management struggle to view where a processes stands, what the status is, and ability to view critical data.
- Integration issues – poor or no integration with existing systems, which can cause communication gaps.
To improve these areas above our consultants combine the following technologies to build out great solutions
To build modern and responsive forms for the modern employee who may be working anytime and anywhere. We use several technologies built on SharePoint and Office 365 such as React JS, Angular JS and the newish Micrososft forms technology Power Apps.
Workflows make the process run smoothly by notifying users and teams of actions they need to underatke. Using workflows technologies like Microsoft Flow and Nintex allow our consulting team to put these in place.
A central repository of data that allows employees, teams and executives see real time data anywhere and any time.
We create feature rich reports using technologies such as Power Pivot and Power BI.
CMS and Collaboration
SharePoint mainly originated as a content management system and it is indeed still the best CMS on the market. It lays out information that is available to employees throughout your company that can be accessed anywhere at any time. This data is stored securely where users can share, store and collaborate.
While File Shares continue to be popular, they do not offer much apart from file storage. The main advantages of using Office 365 / SharePoint as a CMS are
- a central place for storing documents that can be tagged and contain metadata to make them easily searchable
- because information is easy to find, employees do not need to waste time trying to find them in network shares, local drives etc.
- workflow can help route content to the appropriate people at the appropriate time
- check-in and check-out allows employees to work securely on a document without having their changes overwritten
- versioning allows for the restoring of documents to an older state
- permissions can be very granular allowing different rights to different people
- allows secure access outside VPN connections which can be cumbersome for employees
- share data with external users such as clients and vendors
Another popular area in Office 365 and SharePoint is business intelligence. Using SharePoint as centralized platform for BI makes a lot of sense. Integration with applications such as Excel, Access, SQL and external data systems such as SAP or Oracle can surface all your critical content into one central area. This in turn dramatically improves the ability of key decision makers to get a full view of relevant data which in turn helps them make the right business decisions. We use some of the following tools to build great reports such as
- Power BI
- Power Pivot
- Visio Services

Delve allows users to search, discover and organize data throughout the Office suite that is relevant to them. Delve is powered by Office Graph. From SharePoint to One Drive, Delve surfaces content based on what project or items you are working on and who your are collaborating with.
