Hi, I'm Greg!
Hi! I’m Greg, the SharePoint Expert!
I’m here to help!
I’m Greg Zelfond, and when it comes to out-of-the-box SharePoint consulting, training, or configuration, I’m one of the best experts around for affordable, approachable, effective service. Nice to meet you!
SharePoint doesn’t have to be stressful!
I’ve spent the last 10 years as a SharePoint trainer, consultant, speaker, and blogger. There’s no doubt that SharePoint can help companies soar to new heights… but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s easy to understand! My passion lies in helping businesses and nonprofits navigate and master SharePoint, transforming it from a splitting headache to a secret weapon.
What makes me the Maven?
Experience, independence, and flexibility.
As an independent consultant, I can provide thorough, clear, out-of-the-box SharePoint solutions at prices that make more sense for small-to-midsize businesses in a wide variety of industries. I work closely with these organizations to increase their understanding of SharePoint and maximize their operation’s efficiency through the improvement of collaboration and information sharing strategies.
Whew! That feels like a lot of jargon, doesn’t it? In a nutshell, I’ll work with you so that you can use SharePoint to work better together.
After 10 years of working intimately with SharePoint, I’ve been able to watch its progress from an objective standpoint. What works? What doesn’t? What are the limitations, and how do we work around that? Trust me, I’ve seen it all!
Whether you need simple-but-intuitive intranet portals, or are focused more on developing implementation strategies and site architectures, I can get you up-and-running quickly and easily.
Who do I work with, and what’s that like?
I mentioned it before, but I’ll say it again: I love to work with small-to-midsize businesses in almost any industry. I’ve been lucky enough to work with law firms, healthcare practices, financial departments, nonprofit agencies, engineering firms, and real estate firms… and that’s only the beginning! Regardless of your industry, I can help.
The SharePoint Maven Difference
After years of experience with SharePoint, I’ve learned a thing or two about successfully implementing a SharePoint environment! I’ve also discovered that each business can have startlingly-different needs — this is why my work as an independent consultant helps organizations save money and time without investing in services and costly customizations they don’t need.
I only focus on out-of-the-box features, and never use custom code or 3rd party tools. Add-ons like these will blow your budget and make the solution impossible to maintain on your own. My services are designed to empower you, not hold you back. Other key benefits include:
- Cost-effective solutions that fit your budget
- Unbiased consulting and recommendations
- Stress-free implementation
- Keen business analysis
- Zero sweet talk about additional software add-ons or expensive consulting services
- Built-in project management to keep SharePoint implementation on track
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where are you located?
I live in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. But I work globally.
Do you do business with clients outside of USA and Canada?
Even though I live in USA, Office 365/SharePoint’s ‘cloud’ technology permits me to operate virtually. In other words, I don’t need to come to your office to customize SharePoint for you. I serve clients on all 7 continents. The only continent I don’t have clients at yet is Antarctica. 🙂
What industries do you serve?
I work with a wide spectrum of businesses and non-profits including: Real Estate, Finance, Information Technology, Medical/Health, Non-Profit, Engineering, Retail & Government.
Are you really an expert in SharePoint?
I try to use word ‘expert’ carefully. Truth of the matter is, SharePoint is a very complicated system and you can’t be an expert in all of its aspects. That being said, I have led a number of SharePoint implementations over the years and accumulated lots of great skills and knowledge to make your future SharePoint implementation successful.
What size of organization do you work with?
I work with any size of organization. Still, most of my clients are small (5-10 people) to medium (up to 1,000 users) businesses and non-profits. Most of my clients need help with Office 365/SharePoint out-of-the-box and need to setup proper site and information architecture within their organizations. Larger organizations typically require technically sophisticated and complex SharePoint configurations and interfaces and those needs are best served by larger consulting firms.
Greg’s knowledge and passion about SharePoint shine through everything he does. Without him, our organization would be lost. I would recommend anyone serious about using SharePoint to contact Greg!
