SharePoint HQ and Alentus Internet Services Form SharePoint Hosting and Implementation Partnership
Toronto, Ontario, Canada - September 10, 2007
SharePointHQ®, a leading provider of training, professional services, web parts and custom development solutions for Microsoft® SharePoint® Products and Technologies, and Alentus® Internet Services, today announced the formation of a SharePoint services partnership to provide a joint SharePoint hosting and implementation solution for the SharePoint marketplace.
The SharePoint services partnership, with hosting through Alentus Internet Services’ Turnkey SharePoint offerings and SharePoint implementation through SharePointHQ’s SharePoint JumpStart solutions, allows companies to quickly host and implement both Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 across their entire organization.
Microsoft Office SharePoint Server and Windows SharePoint Services are Microsoft’s collaborative portal applications that allow users to connect and collaborate within an organization. Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 has experienced explosive growth since its release with a 35% year-over-year increase in sales based on revenues of $800 million for the year ending June 30, 2007. Since SharePoint’s inception in 2001, Microsoft has sold 85 million licenses worldwide to over 17,000 companies.
"We are extremely pleased to have entered into this partnership with Alentus. We are now able to provide a SharePoint hosting option to our professional services clients" said Hans Leuschner, Vice-President, Sales and Marketing at SharePointHQ. "For companies that are looking for a single solution for SharePoint hosting, installation, and implementation there is a lack of choice in the marketplace. Our partnership with Alentus now gives enterprises the choice of having their SharePoint hosting, installation and implementation provided through a single source."
"The partnership between Alentus Internet Services and SharePointHQ is an ideal complement of services," adds Darren Hauch, Vice-President and General Manager at Alentus Internet Services. "Professional clients are provided with the option to find their SharePoint solution in one place, with Alentus Internet Services network infrastructure and hosting, and implementation and integration services with SharePointHQ. As a complete SharePoint solution, the partnership extends our SharePoint service offerings. It’s a wonderful fit for Alentus Internet Services, and we are pleased to be a part of it."
