red KG does Market-oriented concepts, transparent financial simulations and valuable rental contracts for sustainable success of hotels and mixed-use real estate projects! Oliver Giger of red KG was responsible for the whole replacement and migration process to SharePoint Online:
First, here is something about our IT strategy:
SharePoint out-of-the-box is too limited for our needs, so we switched to the Access Service apps. For us, a big disadvantage of SharePoint is how it handles data relations over more than two levels (mother and child). With the Access Service apps, we were able to create complex data checks and queries. A central aspect was the user-friendly design of the UI, in particular when displaying information from other tables. However, the Access Service apps are not integrated into SharePoint (user interface and navigation).
So, in the end, we decided to go with the skybow Solution Studio Online.
As a result of this SharePoint project, we have put all our business data into the cloud. skybow is used for all aspects of the administration of contacts, projects, time recording and invoicing (now Access later, hopefully, skybow Reports). We are also building a partner portal where we can offer our customers control and collaboration tools for their projects. There will also be forms, for which we will use the Solution Studio.
And this is how it looks like:
