Centric is a leader in leveraging out-of-the-box SharePoint capabilities for enterprises.
SharePoint has evolved into a useful, enterprise-ready product. As a portal and collaboration platform, SharePoint has found a niche within organizations seeking to create integration sites for employee, project and social collaboration.
Centric has been working with SharePoint since it was Site Server in 1999. We have implemented SharePoint 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013 solutions and have come to appreciate the role SharePoint can play within an enterprise. We’ve developed specific expertise within the healthcare, insurance and manufacturing industry verticals and have a solution package that leverages SharePoint foundation and ASP.net/MVC for a lightweight, yet powerful, web framework.

Our Sharepoint Service Capabilities
Out of the Box
SharePoint is a technically and feature-rich platform. Like any product, however, SharePoint works well in specific situations and marginally in others. We work with our clients to build feature-rich, enterprise-ready solutions using SharePoint’s out-of-the-box features.
SharePoint has steadily improved workflow capabilities with SharePoint 2010 and 2013. We have a short and simple assessment developed to help clients understand if their workflow needs can be configured out of the box or extended through a third-party tool.
Health and Innovation
We find many organizations invest in developing a SharePoint solution only to have it lose adoption and use due to lackluster performance and slower rates of innovation. We help our clients define, build and support the right team necessary, as well as provide health monitoring for SharePoint and its critical services.
& Taxonomy and Search
So often we hear users bemoan search capabilities, sighing about problems finding relevant information and understanding how information is arranged in their SharePoint portal. We believe it is important to get information architecture, content definition, taxonomy and search correct. We work with you to ‘right size’ this work to help drive adoption of your SharePoint portal investment.
One of SharePoint’s strengths is that it can integrate information for end users’ needs and decision making processes. We work to highlight how much can be accomplished with out-of-the-box integrations as well as simple development ideas to improve integration capabilities in SharePoint. We know that SharePoint becomes a significantly more useful solution when coupled with other enterprise products and solutions such as Business Process Management (BPM), document management, report portals for Business Intelligence (BI) and social collaboration.
Governance and Planning
It’s a bold statement, but any SharePoint implementation without governance will likely fail. We’re pragmatic and help define a “right-sized governance” approach. Microsoft provides tremendous resources for this purpose and we help leverage what you need for your business size.
