Out of the Box SharePoint solutions that transform
the way you manage your business
SharePoint consulting services that make your life easier
Maybe you just subscribed to SharePoint Online/Office 365 or migrated some of your documents to SharePoint. You heard it would make document management and team collaboration easier but it’s been difficult figuring out how to set things up. Your information management still feels disorganized and you feel increasingly frustrated.
I understand how you feel. As a SharePoint expert for over ten years, I’ve talked with hundreds of small business owners, department heads, CEOs and CFOs, as well as IT managers. They all have the same thing to say: setting up a SharePoint environment can make a grown man weep . (No, they don’t really say that, but I figure that’s what they’re thinking.)
The point is, I’ve helped businesses and nonprofits located around the world to unlock the power of the SharePoint platform. And I can help you.
Whether you need to customize and configure your SharePoint site, migrate existing documents and data, or “clean up” an existing SharePoint site, I can design a solution that’s customized to your unique needs.
My work is done virtually and remotely, across multiple time zones, using the functionality included within SharePoint to create simple solutions and easy-to-use interfaces that solve critical business problems. I don’t use third party tools that will blow a hole through your budget. Or add custom coding to give you unnecessary fancy features. Instead I create functional, out-of-the-box SharePoint sites that fit your specific needs.
And oh yeah, I’m actually quite affordable.
On-demand hourly Consulting
Are you banging your head against the wall trying to figure out “How do I do this in SharePoint”? Then my hourly consulting services might be just what you’ve been looking for.
This service is perfect for people who wish they had an experienced SharePoint consultant they could call for help on an as needed basis. There are no contracts to sign. You just pay for the hours you use. Prepaid packages in hourly blocks are also available at a discounted rate.
The first phase of a SharePoint implementation can be fairly tricky. In fact, if you just acquired SharePoint as part of an Office 365 subscription you might be feeling like you wandered onto a busy road without any traffic signals. Let me help you get past that “deer in headlights” anxiety that can’t be good for your blood pressure.

What is the key to successfully using SharePoint? It’s simple. Training. Training. And you guessed it, training .
SharePoint is a powerful collaboration tool, but it’s not always intuitive. Providing training for your employees, power users, and administrators will ensure that your staff feels comfortable using SharePoint to organize documents and manage team projects. I offer a range of courses for just about any major topic involving SharePoint. The training will take place online and can be arranged to fit your scheduling needs.

Without clear guidelines in place, your SharePoint Intranet can quickly resemble the Wild West instead of a logical, easy to use environment that streamlines your business operations.
If you have already built an Intranet in SharePoint yourself, I can provide an in-depth audit of your Information Architecture where I’ll review how you’ve set it up. The audit will review your site hierarchy, navigation, security , and current taxonomy. I’ll also evaluate how well your employees are adhering to user adoption best practices. At the end of the audit, you will receive a detailed report with tangible suggestions and recommendations for improvements.
Custom SharePoint Workflows
Inefficient workflows not only waste time, they leave room for mistakes that can cost you money and damage your reputation. If your employees are spending their time repeating the same steps over and over again, such as checking statuses and emailing each other for approval, then you can benefit from setting up workflows within SharePoint.
I can set up automated business processes that are custom tailored to your needs. These workflows can ensure that critical checklists are followed in the order they need to be followed, reducing errors and streamlining your day-to-day operations.
You have more important things to do with your time than to spend the whole day (or several weeks, for that matter) moving your digital files from one place to another.
Moving large quantities of documents into SharePoint can be a complicated, time-consuming process. One that involves tagging the documents before moving them to the appropriate locations, then making sure that everything transferred the way you expected. I can manage the SharePoint file migration process to ensure that your project files are transferred accurately and with a minimum of fuss, leaving you free to focus on your key business tasks.
Do find yourself fielding employee questions about SharePoint, from how to accomplish a certain task to setting up a new site? Providing this level of support is critical for ensuring that your employees continue to use your SharePoint environment the way you intended when you first set it up. But after a while, staying on top of all these queries and requests for help can consume too much of your time.
When you hire me to serve as your virtual SharePoint Administrator, I provide the kind of fast support that keeps your employees happy and frees up your IT team for other tasks. In fact, many of my clients’ employees think I am just another employee.
Wouldn’t it be great to have an extra set of hands to handle your SharePoint administration? Then get in touch. I’d be happy to chat.
Project Online Configuration
Having access to a powerful tool like Project Online can make it easier for busy project managers to keep track of multiple projects whether they are in the office or on the road. But although it is built on top of SharePoint platform, the configuration and setup for Project Online is much more complicated than a regular SharePoint site. In part this is because to take full advantage of the features, you need to have an in-depth understanding of project management principles.
As a PMP Certified Project Manager with over 15 years experience running projects of all sizes (as well as over a decade’s worth of experience setting up custom SharePoint sites for clients), I can configure your Project Online installation to make it easier for you to see what your team is working on, manage your tasks and project pipeline, communicate with your team, and facilitate collaboration.
