SP Marketplace offers best practices services SMBs automating processes on Office 365

Mar 11, 2015 9:00:00 AM

SP Marketplace (SharePoint Marketplace) the leader in Office 365 business applications, announced Business Transformation Services, a best practices structured approach for small to medium (SMB) organizations to consolidate and move business processes to the cloud. Unlike traditional consulting services, it uses a very structured process with clearly defined practices, worksheets and project phases along with the accelerator application templates in SP Business Suite. It puts in place an Intranet structure which goes beyond a simple Intranet Home Page. 

Moving to the cloud with the Office 365 Platform is just the start. Many organizations initially move their email, office applications, and basic collaboration (document sharing, etc.) to Office 365 and stop there. That is like buying a Ferrari and only driving it 25 mph to the grocery store. It is using only a small portion of the platform, leaving the full productivity opportunities on the table. SP Marketplace Business Transformation Services provide an SMB organization with the Road-map, Implementation Plan, and SMB Best Practices to realize the full potential of the Office 365 Platform to drive collaboration and automate processes leveraging portal and application templates in SP Business Suite.

“After over 500 implementations we have learned what works and what does not in transforming your business to realize the full potential of the cloud,” stated Darrell Trimble, CEO at SP Marketplace. “Deploying SP Business Suite templates is not the solution, but really is the accelerated start of realizing the productivity from leveraging Office 365 fully.”

The objective of the services is to provide a phased evolution of the operation to a collaborative cloud environment, and empower the organization to maintain the progression by training key business power users.

Structured Approach Using Best Practices
The Service is designed specifically for SMBs and takes into account the reality of limited resources, budgets and skills in that size organization. It is focused on setting up an Internal Services Structure that is centered on an Intranet Portal, Employee Self-Service and Department Portals. It is delivered through a series of services that define a road map and a series of phases which can be implemented at the rate that works for the organization. Those Services Include:
     * Business Transformation Road-map Service
     * Intranet/Employee Self-Service Design and Deployment
     * Service Department(s) Portal Design
     * Customer Management (Sales, Service) Portal Design
     * Existing Forms Conversion to Automation
     * Document and Data Migration Services

Business Transformation Partners Certification
SP Marketplace is putting a Partners Certification program in place to expand the reach of its services. SP Marketplace is offering the initial service – Transformation Roadmap as a package with its SP Business Suite for Office 365. A network of partners is being trained to provide the new services around the world. These partners bring a combination of business consulting, Office 365 experience and deep knowledge of SP Business Suite functions to provide a unique solution for SMB transformation success.  “Success in the cloud for SMBs is more than technology” states Jeff Lynch, president of Lynch Interactive. “It starts with the right structure which is designed in the context of your organization. Second it involves education within your organization and support from executive management throughout the process. SP Marketplace has defined a best practice approach which proven.”
