Q. We are looking to move from our SharePoint 2007 in-house server to a Saas product such as Procore. The cost to upgrade our network infrastructure and licensing is too high and I was wondering if anyone has moved to the Cloud and if you can share your recommendations with various vendors.

The Saas solution costs are coming out less than we are spending on overhead, maintenance, & support of the servers. One estimate was a yearly figure, with a 3 year term, unlimited users, training and support.

We need a project management system with typical forms, workflows, email management for processes such as Change Orders, RFIs, Submittals, etc.

We have approx. 26 employees and depending on the project, a variable amount of Subs & Owners who will use the web app as well.

Thanks for your help!

A: May want to look at http://www.aconex.com, we looked at it. Very good product. We are currently going SharePoint internal, but for 26 users SAAS may be the way to go. Especially if you do not have any support staff.

A: We use MindShift for hosted Exchange and SharePoint, both of which have been great move from in house.
