Most of us have at least one task in our daily lives that we could simplify if we streamlined the process. For many organizations, large and small, that one task – purchase order tracking –will not only cut costs, but also improve productivity.
Take, for example, the case study of a city government that for decades used paper-based workflows to manage approvals for expenditures and other initiatives. Reliance on manual processes resulted in a time-consuming and inefficient approval cycle, and excess spending on document storage space. By implementing the SharePoint Purchase Order System the administration reduced the time to complete approval processes from days to minutes, decreased paper consumption and printing costs, and projected savings of $14.3M over five years.
Sounds simple, right?

A couple of years ago, I bought a toolkit containing all kinds of tools. But let’s say that I need a socket wrench, and the toolkit I own does not include one. Naturally, I go to the hardware store to look for one. Money is tight, and I want the best deal. Then, I spot it: a shiny new socket wrench. What’s more, it comes as part of a toolkit that includes dozens of other tools. What a deal! Who needs a single socket wrench when I can have it plus all these other great gadgets? Who cares if it costs a little—or a lot—more than the socket wrench alone?
Of course, I didn’t need an entirely new toolkit. It doesn’t make sound financial sense to purchase an entirely new toolkit when I only need a single tool.
Likewise, it doesn’t make sense to purchase entirely separate platforms and systems for collaboration, policies and procedures management, compliance, or business process management (BPM) when you already have the basic tools that make those systems work. If your organization, like most organizations, has SharePoint, it already owns the building blocks of all those other systems. By purchasing products that do not tie into SharePoint, you are squandering the investment you have already made. You could, instead, purchase fully-customizable add-ons that enhance the SharePoint capabilities you already have.
ConvergePoint specializes in SharePoint add-ons that accomplish everything those off-the-shelf packages do, with the added benefits of simplicity and integration with your existing SharePoint system and resources. SharePoint ties in seamlessly with your global address book, all Microsoft Office applications, and Active Directory. No extra work required. The add-ons scale with your organizational needs and are fully customizable. You spend minimal dollars, maximize your previous investment, and get going sooner.
Don’t fill your garage with redundant toolkits. Optimize what you have with targeted add-on products that provide exactly what you need.
