As a tax and business consulting service company for mid-sized and enterprise businesses, UHY Advisors wanted to leverage the workflow, documentation management, version control, security model and project collaboration features of SharePoint 2010 to better serve its clients located around the world.
UHY Advisors wanted to install and implement SharePoint 2010 to more than 1,000 users and desktops. Because the company needed an agile approach and had limited IT resources to execute, UHY needed a strategic partner who could collaborate with executive team leaders and IT staff to ensure rapid deployment and long-term success. Other challenges included: Limited project management and SharePoint expertise Dispersed workforce that required secure remote accessibility Post-implementation training and support
Sparkhound, a Microsoft Gold Partner, met with key business leaders to understand the company’s long-term business goals and infrastructure needs before providing a technology solution: Used project management methodologies and best practices to meet the aggressive timeline Implemented a document and process management solution with collaborative project planning, analysis and testing for in-house and remote users Transferred knowledge to IT staff with post-migration support
Utilizing Microsoft best practices, its industry expertise and an agile approach, Sparkhound received immediate executive-level acceptance and launched SharePoint 2010 on time. The result: minimized risk, long-term end-user adoption and increased cost savings.
