PointBridge worked with RED to leverage Microsoft SharePoint Online to meet their contract management needs in a cost-effective way.
The Business Productivity Online Suite includes Microsoft Exchange Online, Office Live Meeting, Microsoft Office Communications Online, and Microsoft SharePoint Online. The Business Productivity Online Suite is enterprise software, hosted by Microsoft Online Services and sold through partners on a subscription basis. This offering makes it possible for a company such as RED to gain access to a wide range of enterprise-class capabilities—including desktop and mobile e-mail, calendaring and contacts, instant messaging, presence, audio/video conferencing, shared workspaces and Web-conferencing applications—without having to build or maintain an in-house application and server infrastructure. Microsoft hosts and maintains the servers with its own staff of application experts. It also stays on top of security patches and application updates so that RED always has access to the latest, most up-to-date versions of the applications to which it subscribes. Availability and uptime are backed by service level agreements (SLA) from Microsoft Online Services.

"When PointBridge came back with the SharePoint online solution, it was significantly more attractive than the in-house solution because it had a lower cost of ownership, yet the same benefits and features," says Walters.

The fact that RED could gain access to sophisticated document management applications that PointBridge had promoted—with essentially no upfront infrastructure costs and a monthly, pay-as-you-go, per-user subscription arrangement—made this solution feasible for RED. PointBridge promptly began development of the document management solution, and PointBridge facilitated the process of setting up RED's accounts with Microsoft Online Services.
