Focal Point Solutions’ expertise in planning, building, and optimizing solutions for Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Office 365, combined with its dedication to the local business community, also led to its recent induction into the Best of Cincinnati Business Hall of Fame.

Cincinnati, OH – August 18, 2016 – Focal Point Solutions, LLC, a leading Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Office 365 consulting firm, today announced continued company expansion through its client work throughout the United States and its induction to the Best of Cincinnati Business Hall of Fame.

“We see a rapid increase in demand from clients who want to overhaul their existing online portals by upgrading to SharePoint 2013, SharePoint 2016, or Office 365,” said Stacy Deere-Strole, Owner of Focal Point Solutions and Microsoft Most Valuable Professional. “Our latest customer projects are examples of how well-positioned we are to partner with clients, deploy Microsoft technologies, and empower their teams to discover, share, and collaborate on content when and how they need to do so.”

Focal Point Solutions Eliminates Barriers to Enterprise Collaboration

Building on the momentum of companies adopting the latest versions of Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Office 365, Focal Point Solutions continues to deliver a comprehensive range of support for planning, building, and optimizing clients’ collaboration solutions.

AdvancePierre Foods Holdings, Inc.

AdvancePierre (APFH), a nationally recognized food supplier based in Cincinnati, OH, wanted to streamline its existing SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010 deployment used by 2,200 employees into a single SharePoint 2013 farm. Focal Point Solutions worked with APFH to migrate more than 250 gigabytes of content to the new SharePoint 2013 farm in less than two weeks. Once all content was moved onto SharePoint 2013, Focal Point Solutions then transitioned to business process automation by implementing custom forms and workflows for various departments and within APFH. Focal Point Solutions then implemented a streamlined document and content management system taking advantage of SharePoint’s rich metadata capabilities, enabling AdvancePierre employees to easily search a single source of record to improve team collaboration and the experience for its end users.

Yaskawa Motoman

A Miamisburg, OH-based robotics company, Yaskawa Motoman turned to Focal Point Solutions to use Microsoft Office 365 with SharePoint Online to update its legacy intranet and reorganize and reduce the amount of content the company managed. Focal Point Solutions created a modern Intranet enabling Yaskawa Motoman’s IT department to provide a self-service model for users to make changes, add documents, and collaborate – freeing up existing IT resources formerly dedicated to servicing its homegrown intranet to focus on other business-critical initiatives. Employees can now also quickly upload documents tagged with relevant metadata and search for existing information in one portal instead of searching hundreds of pages manually. In addition, Focal Point migrated and streamlined a legacy web application used to locate manufacturing documentation linked to complex robot products, allowing Yaskawa Motoman to leverage the vast features available in SharePoint including managed metadata, Enterprise Search and versioning.

Focal Point Solutions Named Best of Cincinnati for Professional Services Three Years in a Row

Recognized by peers and clients for its business success and work in the local community, Focal Point Solutions received the Best of Cincinnati Award for the third consecutive year and was inducted into the Best of Cincinnati Business Hall of Fame.

“We’re extremely honored to receive such a prestigious recognition from the Cincinnati Award Program just five years after we established Focal Point Solutions,” Deere-Strole added. “We put in a lot of time and effort into working with our clients to make all projects a success. Together we strive for excellence and live by the code that the client and their associates are the most important pieces of a project and their input matters.”
