Small Business SharePoint Case Study

We recently completed a SharePoint project for a small business in Denver called Pillar Properties. The project went very well, and we wanted to create a case study to show off the work.

The company needed to solve collaboration and document management challenges, so we recommended SharePoint through a hosted Office 365 account.

SharePoint Case Study: Pillar Properties

Pillar Property Services adopted Office 365 and SharePoint to improve access to common documents, eliminate the need for an on premise server, and improve collaboration within the company.

Background

Pillar Properties is an affordable housing management company based in Denver, Colorado. Many of their properties and residents qualify for government assistance, and much of their work in focused on managing the various forms and reports the government requires.

Before implementing SharePoint, reports, forms, and documents were stored on a server in the Denver office. Over the years, the file share had grown unwieldy, and employees had difficulty finding the information they needed.

Office 365 Solution

MCS helped the organization build out a SharePoint site for managing common content, including:

  • Policies & Procedures
  • Tenant income verification
  • Compliance documents
  • Employee manuals

MCS also created separate sites for each property with information and forms that pertained to that specific location. General company-wide information was managed on the home page and parent site.

Result of Adopting SharePoint

“We couldn’t be happier,” company President Paul Malinowski said. “MCS smoothly transitioned us from an old server to Office 365. They understood our needs, designed an effective site, and thoroughly trained my staff.”

Paul says that he now feels self-sufficient with the software and is looking forward to expanding its use. “MCS is a trusted partner,” Paul said.
