SharePoint Online is a cloud based service that helps a business share and collaborate with colleagues and customers. A SharePoint consultant is someone that can help a business design and configure SharePoint so that they can access company data from anywhere in the world; home, office or mobile device.


What makes a good SharePoint Consultant?

Proficient and knowledgeable consultants should apply the following rules;

Strategic approach – Great consultants listen to a client’s needs and thoroughly investigate requirements before anything else. Getting to know a client’s business and needs are paramount to a successful SharePoint design.

Project planning – Once a SharePoint consultant has spent time understanding a client’s needs, the project planning stage is crucial. Spending a lot time planning ensures a smooth transition and seamless roll-out.

Technical experience – SharePoint can be complex, a good consultant will have years of experience and confidence in setting up different cloud solutions.

SharePoint Online is constantly evolving with new features being released all the time. Microsoft consultants should be familiar with Microsoft’s product road map.

Training and handover – To get the most out of a solution like SharePoint staff need to be on board. A top consultant will take time to train staff after a project goes live.
