There was a great opportunity to improve collaboration and document management by implementing and customizing SharePoint Online.
Building the Modern Workplace with SharePoint Online
CAA needed to modernize it’s SharePoint environment and move most business-critical data into a newly created SharePoint structure. One of the main goals was secure sharing and management of documents in the SharePoint environment in conformance to legislative and industry requirements and to allow for custom functionality within the newly created structure.
Setting up a new SharePoint Framework development environment
Principal had created custom SPFX solutions that enable features not included in traditional SharePoint solutions. We created several solutions that vastly increased search capabilities and allowed for functionality very similar to a Wiki Page within the environment.
Evaluation of the project by CAA
“Being relatively new to SharePoint Online we were put in touch with Principal Technologies and had a discussion around some of our goals and what we were trying to achieve by migrating to SharePoint Online. What I really enjoyed was that they listened and understood our needs and found solutions for us that utilized as much out of the box functionality as we could and only doing customizations where needed. This led to a solution that is much simpler for my team to manage moving forward. They also were able to provide clear concise instructions on how their custom web parts worked and assisted my team with getting them installed and tested. They were able to have all deliverables completed on schedule and very responsive to our questions and change requests.”
