Sharepoint Custom SharePoint Portal Applications Can Your Business A Boost

SharePoint Design and SharePoint Branding: SharePoint 2010 comes loaded with new improvements allows for SharePoint branding and customized SharePoint design. The new Ribbon interface is completely extensible; new user interface controls like the status and notification area as well as the dialog framework allow you to interact with the user, in a more intricate manner. This can be especially helpful in case of business operations that need multiple users to collaborate and communicate in real time. Work with our SharePoint consultants to understand how extensive branding and design can be done on your SharePoint instance. 

Customizing Document Sets: SharePoint 2010 has a new feature called Document Sets. The function of document sets is quite similar to folders. If your business needs users to work together on related documents, they can use this feature of SharePoint 2010 to organize unmanaged documents and collaborate on data that have been invested with similar metadata. So, there is no need of creating a new document library or site for the purpose, which in turn saves cost, streamlines the operations, and increases your business productivity. Contact our SharePoint consultants if you need help understanding document sets

Insightful BI dashboards and Sharepoint Reports: Use SharePoint 2010 to create insightful business intelligence dashboards and SharePoint Reports for data within SharePoint or help you to supervise and analyze your business operations by providing flexible, user-friendly tools for building scorecards, dashboards, KPIs (key performance indicators) and reports.

Customized lists: Business requirements related to information management or the needs of the individual business department can be handled by using InfoPath 2010 to customize SharePoint 2010 list forms. InfoPath 2010 can help you set validation rules, modify layouts of list forms, or create supplementary views. Once the modification of the list forms is complete, you can easily reflect your changes back to SharePoint by using the single click publishing capability that comes with the list form..

These and some other custom SharePoint web applications can make your business process initiation, tracking, participation, and reporting an easy job and optimize the way people, processes and content interact within and across organizations. So, find out what suits your business objectives the best and then implement the same.

11 Steps to Restaurant Operations Manual Creation

11 Steps to Restaurant Operations Manual Creation

Restaurant operations manual should be the principal tool of every franchisee, and should be presented by the franchisor on or before the franchisee starts his or her franchise operations.

Now, make sure that your franchisee will be offered with an easy-to-understand manual so that he or she can operate his or her franchised business the manner you want it to be. The gain with this kind of operations manual is that, you the franchisor will be able to regulate your business, products, or offered services regardless of whoever franchised it or wherever its location may be (the customers & patrons will encounter & enjoy the same kinds of services & products as well, regardless of wherever franchise they go).

A well-written manual will help both parties (the franchisor & the franchisee) a good deal of profit & a smooth ordered operation and will also have an bearing to prospective franchisee because they’ll be given a glimpse of what to expect if they decided to franchise your product or service.

Now, let’s direct our attentions to writing our very own operations manual (particularly, restaurant operations manual) because though there are free templates in the web right now (try looking for it using your favorite search engine), still it’s more advantageous for you & your business if you do it yourself (from scratch, if it needs to be…) because you are the only one who understands the ins & outs of your business & the desired outcome you want from it, unlike those who’ve written those free online templates who only have a generalized idea/s of a particular business operation (some of them having no experience at all about daily operations & flows of business or anything business related because they are only hired writers & what-not…).

So, let us now enumerate the basic details to be included in your manual:
