is not only nice to have, getting SharePoint Online with Office 365 is opening up a whole new world of opportunity, a lot of new ways and solutions to build businesscritical solutions on. A lot of smaller and medium size companies are also using Office 365, and they are now realising that they have a great tool in SharePoint Online for project, case and document management. For just a few years ago, it was too expensive for them if they had to build an on premise solution for project management. Now the cloud solves their problems.” How do you build project or case management into Office 365? A standard solutions like WorkPoint 365 is adding much value to Office 365. WorkPoint 365 fills some of the gaps that SharePoint Online has out of the box. It delivers a complete solution to the task of managing projects, cases and tender processes. As CEO, I have a much, much better overview with WorkPoint 365 as a project management tool of everything that is going on concerning each project at Spektra. I do not have to be updated about statuses of projects by the employees themselves. I can see the time registration, the costs, and the total status. I know if one part are getting close to be done, or it exceeds any parameters, so it has really given me a nice overview. Another advantage is how easily WorkPoint 365 is adapted to fit the individual needs of a company.”
“The big question at the moment is if you are o.k. with hosting your data somewhere other than in your own environment. If you are fine with that, the Cloud is definitely a good solution. If you want to be able to touch the servers that you have data on to know where they actually are, in what room, or were they are placed, you might have a false sense of security in a world where everything is going extremely fast, and were updates are coming within weeks rather than years. I think everything is moving into the Cloud – it is just a matter of time.”
“The value of having Office 365 is that it is easy to implement and you can get up and running in a matter of minutes.” Þór Haraldsson, CEO, Spektra, Iceland
