Whether it is collaboration in document creation, workflow approval, people-driven processes or vertical applications, huge productivity gains can be had when work is shared. This is particularly true where your workforce is geographically dispersed or where multiple departments share a common project – such as when sales, manufacturing, contracts, legal and project management groups pursue a large work order.
Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS) is the cornerstone for corporate collaboration applications, and is typically imbedded in Microsoft enterprise licensing agreements. MOSS has recently evolved with new tools and templates, and can transform critical business functions in ways that formerly required many man hours in custom development.
Virtusa’s SharePoint service offerings include architecture, design, development, testing and migration of SharePoint powered collaboration applications in number of areas including the following:
