Protection Device Manufacturer Reduces Time-to-Market With Integrated Collaboration
When its staff quadrupled in two years, TASER International needed more efficient ways to collaborate than face-to-face meetings and lengthy e-mail strings. TASER also wanted to empower its information workers to manage intranet content without IT assistance. TASER deployed Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007 and engaged Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Avanade to develop an intranet based on Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. The integration between Office SharePoint Server 2007 and the programs in Office Professional Plus 2007 makes it easy for TASER employees to access real-time business process information that helps them make better decisions, increase agility, and shorten time-to-market. The built-in workflow and search functionality and business intelligence tools in the 2007 Microsoft Office system helped cut development time for the project by more than half.
