Porteo Advantages

Why Porteo Intranet?

In addition to the clear benefits in plain sight, there are also significant discrete benefits when choosing a platform that offers predictable results. Neatly avoiding the risk and opportunity costs associated with custom work!

What exactly is Porteo?
The best way to describe porteo is a full featured best practice SharePoint Templates.  But not in the sense of the old definition of a Classic SharePoint Template (WSP), but rather a set of SharePoint resources (lists, libraries, site pages), Its all packaged in to a solution that is provisioned over basic SharePoint sites such as Communication Sites, and Team Sites.  Much in the same way your internal team or a consultant would develop a SharePoint site using Microsoft Power Platform, we have done the same except with the experience of over 1000 implementations.  Like a traditional business system which are often built using coding, we have done the same thing except using a no-code approach on top of Office 365 and SharePoint.  

The benefits of going with this approach are many:
  • You get a best practice design proven out in over 1000 implementations
  • The solution is a fully packaged software design, with functional consistency across all modules and easy to use Admin Dashboards
  • All pages are 100% customizable by business power users
  • Simply put you get all the benefits of a packaged software solution and the flexibility of a custom developed application.​

Porteo reduces project failure risks

A Porteo intranet offers a highly predictable outcome, in terms of both deliverables and cost, in a fraction of the time a traditional solution takes. There is no substitute for knowing exactly what you will be using, what the cost will be, and when it will be delivered. Porteo can be delivered in days!

All the frills are included

Porteo is under continual improvement and enhancements are deployed regularly at no additional cost thereby increasing your organizations’ ability to keep pace with platform changes and industry trends. This results in increased end-user adoption and productivity and ensures the platform will be around for the long-term, growing with your business.

Reduced implementation time

If valuable resources could be refocused on more important business initiatives, then who knows what might be achieved? Not to mention the impact of experiencing the productivity gains of a new intranet months before a traditional custom approach. Turnkey intranets deploy in six weeks or less enabling you to get started quickly and develop your intranet maturity over time in a structured road-map.

IT knowledge owned by the few

So you have a couple of seasoned pro’s in your technical team and feel that you don’t need any technical support for your new intranet? What happens if one or more of those key technical employees leaves? A common risk for the enterprise is an overreliance on the tacit knowledge of employees. Who knows how that complex custom enhancement (hack) works that now performs as a critical function for the whole business? Avoid stagnation by adopting an evergreen platform with built-in Service Level Agreement (SLA) backed support.

Refocus staff on more important tasks

What could your team do if they weren’t dealing with mundane and unpredictable operational support tasks? Don’t have your technical team looking at why the intranet doesn’t render properly on the next device when they could be automating business processes, and impacting real business change. Ask yourself about the opportunity cost of not having your team working on tasks that will save many hours a week...

 

Summary

While adopting a Porteo Intranet will always involve trade-offs when compared to a full custom project, We mitigate those by bundling custom config, branding, and training. Our research has determined that the majority of customers want 80% of the same functionality for their enterprise portal. In addition to those in plain-sight there are significant discrete benefits to choosing a platform with predictable results. Avoid the risk and opportunity costs of a custom project and choose Porteo.
