SharePoint-Admin-As-A-Service

If your company is on-premise SharePoint, or you have moved to SharePoint-Online, then you probably know the problem:

There is no one in the company who really understands how SharePoint works, and therefore the functionality is not used optimally. And the server is always only running at half power because no one knows how to optimize it.

To ensure that you get the most out of your Sharepoint, you can hire a Sharepoint consultant from us. We call it Sharepoint Admin-As-A-Service.

You hire a Sharepoint consultant who takes full responsibility for ensuring that the installation works optimally, and at the same time ensures that users are assisted so that they get the best options and all the help they need. Your Sharepoint consultant is also responsible for ensuring that the Sharepoint installation has as high an uptime as possible.

We agree certain fixed days when we are present on-site at your place, and ensure communication with the IT department and a time slot for support for the users. These days are supplemented by one or more days off-site, where we remotely ensure that all services and servers are functioning as they should. All in all, we take ownership of the servers – and possibly also the applications you have running on your SharePoint farm.

With SharePoint Online, there is naturally not quite the same need for monitoring servers, as that is what you pay Microsoft for. But if you need a support function for users, the offer is also valid for SharePoint Online customers. How can the agreement look like?
Below is a proposal for what a solution could look like – but we would much rather start from your needs – so you are welcome to contact us and we will find the solution you need.

The solution may contain the following:

One day a week on-site at the company, we are available to users for any questions and day-to-day problems
Two days a month to ensure that your SharePoint server is optimally configured and that all services are working as they should, reporting back on the state of the server.
5 monthly calls to the contact consultant with questions
Quarterly meeting with advice on further configurations etc

Extra services

Additional support questions
Monitoring of the servers
