Origami is a product of Sharemuch Software, started in 2013.
We created Origami knowing that SharePoint and Office365, as platforms, have tremendous value but lack to deliver usability teams have come to expect. Many intranet projects, traditionally, require customization, significant IT efforts, and risks associated with overruns.
We knew there has to be a better way, so we invested all of our time and energy in building robust and rock solid intranet delivery engine capable of delivering fully configured solution in record time.
Powered by our delivery methodology and Design Thinking practices, Origami has reliably turned many intranet initiatives and existing SharePoint sites into true intranets for organizations worldwide.
At the core of our process, we apply Design Thinking methodology which empowers our customers to gain insight into true challenges their teams are facing rather than what's on the surface.
Our team helps organizations to collaboratively build incredible momentum by:
Helping stakeholders uncover high-value opportunities
Building personas and identifying their key pain points
Generating creative solutions
Helping to build consensus among stakeholders
Providing measurable tools to help prioritize features
Engaging in interactive prototyping
Measuring the efficiency of the proposed approach
"Their intimate knowledge of SharePoint and creative approach to delivering solutions have been a huge help to my company"
-- David Burman, Senior Business Systems Analyst, S&C Electric Company
Focus on Value
The creative approach we take during our interactive workshops translates into what our customers value the most - value. Successful planning is time well spent when it comes to building the solution. We help our customers understand and prioritize data produced collaboratively into measurable and factual information and clear goals to work towards.
Outcomes of our process feed into:
- Feature prioritization
- Estimation of effort
- Schedule of deliverables
- Risks factors and mitigation
- Plan for future phases
"Origami combine technical knowledge and business acumen while managing customer expectations and schedules. This combination of skills is what makes them successful consultants."
-- Asif Rehmani, CEO, Visual SP
