SharePoint 2010 enables your employees, whether in the office or on the road, to rely on information that is consistent, accurate and easily accessible in real-time.

Share and Collaborate on Documents in a Central Repository

Create, Share and have multiple people work on documents in a central repository, and receive important notifications and updates through announcements and alerts.  Take file sharing to a new level with check-in/check-out functionality, version history, custom metadata, and customizable views.

Enhanced Document Management

With enhanced document management capabilities including the option to activate required document checkout before editing, the ability to view revisions to documents and restore to previous versions, and the control to set document- and item-level security, SharePoint can help ensure the integrity of documents stored on team sites.

Keep each Project in Synch and Moving Forward

Create team workspaces, use templates to create blogs and wikis, coordinate calendars, contacts and Task lists to ensure everyone stays on the same page.

Leverage SharePoint from within Microsoft Office

Post and edit documents, view and update calendars, and create workspaces on SharePoint sites from within Microsoft Office documents and programs.

Plus, if your organization provides us with proof of a Microsoft Volume License (including Open License, Select, and Enterprise Agreement) for Microsoft Office 2010 or 2011 covering all your Thoughtbus users, we can provide your users with the new Office Web Apps to work with your SharePoint-stored documents! This provides web-based versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote, with lightning-fast access from any PC or Mac to view or edit your information. And the Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote web apps provide a new capability not available on the client versions -- the ability for multiple people to simultaneously work on documents, and see each others' updates.

Tailor SharePoint to your Business Processes

While standard workspaces in SharePoint are easy to implement, organizations seeking a more customized solution can quickly leverage templates for addressing specific business processes or sets of tasks.

Provide Sophisticated Controls for Securing Company Resources

IT can set permissions as deep down as the document or item level, and site managers, teams, and other work groups can initiate self-service collaborative workspaces and tasks within these preset parameters. New features enable IT to set top-down policies for better content recovery and users, groups, and team workspace site administration.

Continued Productivity for when you go Mobile

Mobile work isn’t just for the sales force anymore. Today, most companies expect their people to be “always on, always connected,” even when they’re away from the office. SharePoint 2010 offers a full set of capabilities that can help to increase productivity by giving people access to resources, regardless of the tools or devices they have available.

Web Analytics

Better serve your audience by identifying the trends on your sites using Web Analytics.

More Powerful Search to find what you need faster

Empower users with document, people, and site searching capabilities from anywhere; With new refinement capabilities of SharePoint, users can narrow the results of their search and navigate to the right content faster. Refinement on Extended Properties provides the ability to identify custom meta-data (such as products or departments) from the unstructured text of a document, and allows the user to refine and sort data that they care about.
