Category: SharePoint

According to Wikipedia, SharePoint is a web-based collaborative platform that integrates with Microsoft Office. Launched in 2001, SharePoint is primarily sold as a document management and storage system, but the product is highly configurable and usage varies substantially between organisations.

Due to the highly configurable nature of SP and the multitude of versions available, we offer a vast collection of classic and moder SP information within this category which covers everything from Enterprise Users of the latest SP Release.

Therefore, this category is broad too, and is full of handy tips, tricks and advise. Check out some of the Step by Step blogs or learn with our eBooks, How To videos and Webinars.

Should the website provide brand awareness? Should the website connect people with people, products or services? Should the website drive revenue directly through online commerce? These are just some of the questions that should be asked, but are so often overlooked, before deciding on which WCM platform suits your requirements.

At PleaseTech, we have found that cartoons can be a very good way to get a message across- simply. We develop solutions to facilitate collaborative document review and this can be a challenging subject to explain in a few words! In fact, we do receive great feedback on our cartoons and now they have now taken on a life of their own.
We’ve just launched a new cartoon website (www.documentreviewcartoons.com) which takes a humorous view on events and stories that appear in the world media- from a document review point, of course. We believe that if only the right document review tool had been used, then things may have turned out quite differently!
