SP Marketplace Announces SP Business Suite 365 for SMBs on Office 365
Out-of-the-box suite of integrated modules drives business productivity and collaboration to new levels for Office 365 customers.
By: SP Marketplace
Built on Office 365 and SharePoint Online, and driven by best practices design, SP Business Suite 365 includes an Intranet portal, employee self-service portal, internal services department portals (HR, IT, Admin), projects, CRM, customer service and forms portal.
Delivered as separate but integrated modules, customers can purchase just one module or combine them into packaged suites. For SMBs, this next generation offering in the cloud allows them to take their Office 365 platform beyond basic email and document sharing to provide a productivity hub for employees to collaborate and access internal service processes in an intuitive and consistent way.
Extending Office 365 to support the business operation
With SP Business Suite 365, employees can now use Office 365 to receive the latest industry news and organizational updates, submit requests to internal departments, access policies and procedures, and manage core processes, such as time off and expense reports. SP Business Suite 365 is designed to provide a common user experience across SP Marketplace modules and the components in Office 365.
“Traditionally, employees have had to use multiple disparate systems to automate business processes, which leads to frustration and productivity disconnect,”
An Integral Part of the Office 365 Ecosystem
Unlike traditional applications built on a separate database or platform and then linking to Microsoft Office, SP Business Suite 365 was built and designed from the beginning to be a next generation solution integrated with the Office 365 Ecosystem.
SP Business Suite 365 is built on SharePoint Online and leverages other Office 365 components, supporting the regular Microsoft platform updates with no risk of service interruption.
SP Business Suite 365 provides an intuitive, consistent experience for end users and is designed to:
• Provide an intuitive user interface using native Office 365 themes
• Support multiple devices with a responsive interface design
• Be accessed from the Office 365 App launcher
• Use standard SharePoint Online for document, data and process automation
• Be 100% customizable by business power users
• Seamlessly integrate with all Office 365 components like Outlook, Word, Skype
• Leverage new collaborative service portals like Video Portal and Knowledge Portal
At the core of SP Business Suite 365 is the SP Application Services Layer, a powerful new set of core functions designed to be used by business power users to simplify what normally would require code and complex workflows and includes:
• Form design and processing
• Notification and reminder emails and messages
• Process automation replacing workflows
• Data import from external sources like email, web forms, databases and other sources
“This is a game changer for SMBs in terms of cost and value,” said William Ryan, partner at Sync(d) Technologies. “Now, they can get an out-of-the-box set of portal and application modules and customize them to meet their needs, with no coding required.”
SP Business Suite 365 is priced to support the reality of SMB budgets and tight IT resources. Modules start under $2500 and suites start under $10,000.
