Upgrade SharePoint

Stay current and leverage new features.

Why should I upgrade?

Stay supported by Microsoft

Having your platform supported by Microsoft is assurance to you and your organization.

Microsoft SharePoint Mainstream Support Schedule

  • SharePoint 2010 Ended in October 2015
  • SharePoint 2013 Support provided until April 2018

Reduce operating and licensing costs

When moving to SharePoint 2013 and beyond there are significant licensing gains, specifically involving external connectors and Enterprise Search opportunities. The platform is considerably easier to operate and requires far fewer maintenance hours than legacy versions.

Increase user adoption and productivity

Prior versions of SharePoint were challenging to customize and offered little in the way of user experience. Combined with a lack of vendor experience, many of these installations resulted in dumping grounds for documents and lists, not to mention steep learning curves and user complaints. New versions are easily customizable, employing modern UX standards and find wide acceptance in the technology industry.

Make your solutions mobile-accessible

Office 365 and SharePoint 2016 are fully mobile accessible. Apps will look great on your phone, tablet, PC’s and ultra-wide screens. Not to mention, users will be able to make full use of the platform, regardless of where or how they are accessing it.

Take advantage of Cloud and Hybrid-Cloud

Reduce your operating costs by moving your entire installation, or only the parts that you are comfortable with into Azure or Office 365. REFINECO will work with you to create a cloud strategy that is effective, secure and budget friendly.

Reduce legacy platform limitations

Remember, it is not just SharePoint you are upgrading. If you have Telerik, Gimmal, Nintex, or any other significant Workflow or Document Management integration, they have also dropped support for the legacy versions of SharePoint.
