Last year, 2018, at CMSwire.com, I've been named one of the contributors of the year.
In today’s digital age, it's common to work on documents when commuting, after hours, or whatever time is most convenient. This is especially true for bloggers.

Tens of thousands of organizations that have invested in Microsoft SharePoint but most continue to face a common roadblock: how to effectively and efficiently onboard employees to SharePoint 2010, SharePoint 2013, SharePoint 2016, or SharePoint Online, enabling to use the solution to help with there jobs but doing it with minimum friction.

- Easier onboarding of new employees;
- Faster adoption of business workflows;
- Improved regulatory compliance;
- And, more importantly, successful digital adoption.
