Microsoft SharePoint 2013
Enterprise Business Collaboration
Microsoft’s SharePoint 2013 is a powerful business tool for managing and sharing information assets. With features like interactive dashboards and scorecards, people can use the information in databases, reports, and business applications to address specific needs.
While the components that make up SharePoint offer both flexibility and convenience, configuring and customizing SharePoint to fit your company’s business environment can be challenging. At CPI, we have a team of professionals that can help you navigate the complexities and design a solution that fits your business needs. Our team of SharePoint consultants are certified experts in Microsoft’s SharePoint products and technologies.
SharePoint makes content management more reliable, secure, and easier to maintain. SharePoint allows for check-in and check-out functionality, version control, custom properties, and customizable views. Users can find and share documents and other files in a centralized location where it can easily be found and tracked.
- Document Versioning : Track when documents are updated and refer to previous versions
- Document Metadata : Sort and search for content by defining metadata
- Blog Pages : Set up a functional blog site
- File Blocking : Restrict types of files from library
SharePoint enhances team collaboration with a number of services like task lists, discussion boards, surveys, meeting workspace sites, and events lists. Users can follow a project from beginning to end and ensure that everyone on the team remains on task. Team users can communicate efficiently and share knowledge through discussions and surveys.
- People and Groups : Define and manage people and group permissions
- Calendars : Manage events and share them with users
- Tasks : Create, assign, and track the progress of Tasks
- Announcements : Share news and information with teams or user Groups

- Discussion Forums : Discuss issues with users
- RSS Feeds : Generate automatic feeds for any list to notify users
SharePoint has a number of built-in lists to maintain accessible and consistent information, such as events, contacts, web links, discussions, issues, and announcements. Users can create custom lists and spreadsheets as well to ensure everyone in the organization is on the same page.
- Contacts : Make contact information accessible to certain users
- Link : Link to external sources and share these links with users
- PDF Support : PDF documents are searchable within a SharePoint site
- Search : Search lists, libraries, and content even within documents
- Control Panel : Web-based controls to add and remove users and manage disk space
SharePoint sites can potentially be customized by a web designer to change their appearance and functionality without using other applications or programming. Pages can be altered, personal views can be created, themes can be changed, and alerts can be customized.
- Custom Alerts : Choose to receive alerts as they happen or on a schedule
- Mobile Access : View and update content from a mobile device
- Tree View and Breadcrumbs : Users can easily identify where they are on a site
- Workflow : Build custom workflows for different content types or libraries
Office Applications Integration
The Microsoft Office programs that users depend on every day can be flawlessly integrated with SharePoint. Documents from Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Visio, or Word can be saved and Microsoft Access can be used to view and edit data on stored lists. SharePoint can be synchronized with Outlook’s calendar and contacts.
- Migration Assistance : Move data to and from SharePoint easily
