London, UK – 10 October 2011– ClearPeople has been selected by Microsoft to be one of a handful of partners in the UK to administer the Extranet Jumpstart Programme. This programme is funded by Microsoft and is designed to provide qualifying customers with a free 2 day ADS (Architecture Design Session) to show how a solution can be built for their external facing business needs on SharePoint.

Existing SharePoint customers can extend the value of their SharePoint installation by using the platform to support an extranet. Content editors can create content once and publish it internally and externally using the familiar Office UI without the need for IT resources. ClearPeople will deliver a comprehensive workshop and write-up, which includes an estimate of costs for a pilot implementation and solution delivery.

ClearPeople has implemented SharePoint extranets for a number of organisations that need to provide their clients with secure access to a portal environment. This experience, combined with ClearPeople’s three Microsoft Gold Competencies in Digital Marketing, Portals & Collaboration, and Content Management are among the reasons they were selected to partake in this programme.
