Collaboration and Content

​​​​SharePoint

Knowledge Worker solutions developed on the Microsoft SharePoint platform deliver a centralised, collaborative environment that allows an organisation to work together and share information in a way which transforms the business..

Our experienced consultants design and deliver workflow enabled Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and Document Management (DM) solutions while specialist designers and content managers help clients to realise the value of the information contained within their organization.  We strive to develop rich, interactive and useful Intranet, Extranet and Internet sites that encourage users and customers to engage with the organisation.

Workflow, levels of authorisation and powerful but flexible metadata are placed in the hands of business users allowing them to engage proactively and effectively to drive better business activity.
EOH MC Solutions offers consulting services based on industry best practices to ensure that your business intranet, extranet or internet sites remain dynamic and well managed.


Intranet Sites

An Intranet brings business together in a multitude of ways. SharePoint provides an ideal platform for the development of feature-rich intranet portals (5 out of 10 of 2009's Best Intranets were built on SharePoint.)


SharePoint facilitates flexible collaboration, document sharing, communication, and community building on a platform that provides inherent governance, authentication, version control and a comprehensive search capability.

Our experienced consultants will assist you with the development of  an integrated intranet strategy for your organisation that will define portal type, site and content structure, permissions and process workflows.

Collaboration

Collaboration is a cornerstone of the SharePoint platform, whether you are sharing files or ideas. A range of ready-built collaboration sites provide online access to meeting agendas and minutes, document or process collaboration and team discussions and forums.....the simple generation  of meeting minutes and their effective circulation becomes a reality!


Collaboration features include:

 

  • Surveys and discussion forums that provide easy-to-use feedback mechanisms for engaging with   staff
  • Wiki's and blogs allow sharing of ideas, knowledge, training material
  • Calendars, tasks and contacts integrate with Microsoft Outlook to keep everyone on the same page.
  • Meeting spaces that track objectives, agenda, tasks and decisions. Flexible permissions structures in SharePoint allow you to show or hide information seamlessly i.e. Users only see the information that they are authorised to see!

 

Workflow

Workflow is an integral aspect of any business process and SharePoint provides integrated, robust functionality for the development of business workflows quickly and easily. Simple workflows are available out of the box on MOSS lists and libraries and both WSS and MOSS can be enhanced with workflows created in SharePoint Designer, or developed as features. What's the difference?


Out of the Box

Business users can enable the frequently used Document Approval, Collect Feedback, and Three State workflows on MOSS lists and libraries - directly from the browser.


SharePoint Designer

One layer deeper, SharePoint Designer is also available to business users, to create low to medium complexity sequential workflows for lists and libraries. These 'quick and easy' workflows help promote business process without the need for lengthy development. Update list items, send emails or manage Helpdesk requests.

Visual Studio

Not enough? Workflows that support more complex processes can be developed to your specification and applied throughout the site.


Internet Sites

SharePoint for web combines the flexibility of a user-friendly content management system with built-in approval workflows, the integration of line of business data if desired and highly flexible page templates to cater for any look and feel (this site is built on SharePoint!)


Our offering includes:​

  • Information Architecture consulting -  helping you to plan your site for ease of use, from navigation to content;
  • Design - creating a contemporary, fresh look for your site and applying your design to be SharePoint compatible on all major browsers; and 
  • Integration to line of business systems.​

Using MOSS for public websites requires an Internet Connector License, and is ideal for organisations whose content flows from intranet or extranet to public facing websites.

Document collaboration is a critical element to working effectively as a team in your enterprise. The combination of SharePoint Technologies and Office 2010 offers a spectrum of document collaboration methods, whether it is co-authoring a spreadsheet or routing a business plan through a workflow. Understanding the ways you can collaborate on documents is vital to making the best choice for your needs and improving your productivity as an information worker.

However you collaborate on your documents, the days of forwarding attachments in e-mail are history. From this day forward, you never need to pass your document around, and then struggle with the reconciliation of version conflicts, the manual merging and coordinating of changes, the tracking down of who has done what, and the locating of the most up-to-date version.
