SharePoint Services

Big Village IT has emerged as one of the few companies in Austin which can provide complete SharePoint services. Unlike many companies, our team doesn’t simply install SharePoint and leave the rest to you; we can also provide you with customization, training and support to maximize your investment.

SharePoint in its basic form, while useful, does little to show its true capabilities. To see the full potential of a SharePoint feature rich site requires careful planning and development. For this you need skilled and experienced developers planning and building your SharePoint site. We can provide you with consultation, implementation and on-going administration to get the most out of Microsoft SharePoint 2010.

No project is too large or too small. We will gladly work with you, or your company’s existing IT staff and site administrators, on an as-needed basis.

Our SharePoint services include:

  • Solution consulting, system architecture and design
  • Usability and user experience optimization
  • Web parts installation and customization
  • Business process management and workflows
  • User access control
  • Migration and upgrades from WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2010
  • User training, administration, and maintenance
  • Development:
    • Workflows (Approvals and Review, Email driven notification system)
    • Metadata navigation
    • InfoPath Form services
    • Custom Team and Company Calendars
    • Business Intelligence Solutions:

      • PerformancePoint Scorecard and Dashboard integration with Analysis Services
      • Dynamic Visio Charts and Viewer integration
    • Dynamic Reports through SQL Reporting Services SharePoint integration

    • Version History and Audit Trail

Big Village IT recently worked with Emergo Group, an international business with 900 offices globally, to design and build a SharePoint infrastructure with over 10,000 sites and subsites. This project consisted of planning and migration of their existing network from Shared Drive data and SharePoint WSS 3.0 to a unified single system of SharePoint 2010 Enterprise Edition, where all documents, data, and collaboration is maintained in one place and accessed from virtually anywhere. Here’s what Emergo had to say about our services.

“Now that the SharePoint migration is nearly finished, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all the work you have done over the last several months. I am extremely pleased with the end result and believe the SharePoint platform was the right choice for us to serve the needs of our company worldwide. During the process, you listened to our needs carefully and built a platform that meets those needs very, very well. I believe that our employees, consultants and clients worldwide appreciate the new system. Of course, we have only built the foundation for this system – its true potential will be realized in the coming year as we add far more functionality that will enable our employees and consultants in 15 countries worldwide to collaborate more closely. This is when the system will really offer significant operational benefits for us. Again, we appreciate your responsiveness and professionalism and look forward to working with you in the future.”

 GaiaTech, our latest SharePoint client, had this to say regarding our services.

“I wanted to say how much we appreciated the help you gave us in resolving some problems we had on our SharePoint site. Your tech, Zach, was very patient and professional. He was willing to show us the details of the issues while resolving them, explaining everything along the way. His technical abilities are outstanding and the issue was resolved in a timely manner. He did an outstanding job and your company was a great find! We look forward to working you in the future.”
