At Softlanding, we’ve always believed that to be true to ourselves, authentic to others and worthy of the trust of our clients we have to walk our talk. Why would our clients trust us if we do differently than we ask of them? It’s easy to say what we want to do or how we want to act – it’s much harder (and more important) to do what matters on a consistent basis.
- Continuous improvement as a way of life
- Fair and generous relationships with our people and customers
- Never Give Up
- Optimistic by nature
- Resourcefully independent yet aligned with the team
Part of walking our talk is building our own Website on SharePoint. We wouldn’t feel comfortable telling our clients that SharePoint is the best way to build their website, if we’ve used different technology to build our own! We use SharePoint for our Internet, intranet and client extranet. This blog is SharePoint. We use Lync as our phone, instant messaging and conferencing solution. We use Exchange for email and voice mail. We have Windows desktops, notebooks and tablets. We use Office and Office 365. We are our own Managed Services client. We really do practice what we preach, and we have better understanding and expertise because of it.
If you’re curious what Web technologies any company is using try out the Wappalyzer add-in for Firefox. Simply access the website with the add-on enabled. The technologies the site is using will be listed on the right side of the address box. When you are comparing SharePoint consultancies check out their sites. You may be very surprised!
And if you’d like to have a look at what others have done with SharePoint on the Internet, have a browse over at Top SharePoint Internet Sites. It's a very cool Silverlight listing of SharePoint sites. You can narrow down the sites you see by selecting specific industries and/or countries, etc…
We’re currently in the process of expanding our redesigned corporate website and welcome your comments! Let us know what you like, what you don’t, or what we’ve missed (client and profile sections coming soon…).
