How To Get Started


What You Need To Know

 

What happens when you first contact me

The first thing you need to do to start working with me is to say hello. Seriously. Send me an email or fill out my online form and let me know about your SharePoint-related needs. After that we’ll set up a 30-minute phone call or web meeting to discuss your business requirements. Since I’m not an attorney, this initial call is free. (You’re welcome.)

Depending on the services you require, we might schedule another session to discuss the project scope in greater detail. This second session is also free. (I really meant it when I told you that I’m not an attorney.)

Once we’ve established what you need, I’ll either start billing you my hourly rate (if that’s the pricing model we’ve agreed works best for your needs) or I’ll prepare a customized project proposal (Statement of Work) with a fixed fee estimate.

How I work

There are many reasons why I love my job.

For one thing, SharePoint allows me to provide solutions that make it easier for my clients to achieve real-world outcomes. My work helps them manage multiple projects, promotes team collaboration, and allows them to better serve their communities. For another, since I do all my work virtually and remotely, across multiple time zones, I get to work with amazing people located around the world.

Since I strongly believe in creating affordable solutions, I only use the functionality built into SharePoint to create functional, out-of-the-box sites with easy-to-use interfaces. No expensive third party tools. No custom coding. This approach allows me to provide you with cost-effective SharePoint environments that meet your needs and are easy to maintain.

And finally, when you hire me, you will work directly with me—not an outsourced subcontractor or another external consultant. I’ll work one-on-one with you throughout the process, managing the entire project from start to finish.

What to expect if you hire me

  • SharePoint expertise and experience that can supplement or fill in a gap in your in-house technical expertise
  • An online platform that can boost to your team’s collaboration and productivity
  • Training that can reduce employee resistance and frustration with SharePoint
  • Increase in user adoption of your investment in SharePoint and Office 365

 

“We are very happy with our decision to contract Greg’s services for migrating to a new SharePoint site. His experience, efficiency, attention to detail along with the top notch customer service and training made our move to the new system a seamless one!”

“SharePoint has been a great tool for pulling everyone at our company together into a single platform for projects, asset documentation, and day to day operations. We use it on everything from desktops to a large display in our shop to mobile mounted laptops. Greg was able to give us a LOT of guidance on the capabilities of SharePoint and was able to design what we needed. SharePoint is not something to “try” on your own without expert help.”

“We were too busy and inexperienced with SharePoint to learn the ins and outs of setting up an effective project site. Greg was great at digging out the details of what we needed and quickly get a functioning team site that meets our specific needs. Thank you Greg!”
