March 27, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
BURLINGTON, MA - March 27, 2008 - groupSPARK, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and the leading provider of private label hosted software services including Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, today announced the availability of Service Pack 1 for hosted SharePoint 3.0 delivering additional stability and performance enhancements.

groupSPARK resellers can now offer their customers hosted Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SP1 with all of the latest feature enhancements and upgrades. This industry-leading collaboration tool enables small and mid-size businesses to increase productivity, teamwork and efficiency. Acting as a central repository, employees can share project schedules, create lists of data, update files, and share ideas. Hosted SharePoint's web-based interface enables departments, project teams and remote employees to work together by utilizing their hosted SharePoint site as a central location from which to disseminate data and information. Users can also launch and maintain web pages, intranets and photo libraries.

As businesses grow, open additional locations and even expand to other countries around the world, the need for a centralized location to store and manage data becomes increasingly important.

groupSPARK resellers will now be able to offer hosted Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SP1 to businesses previously unwilling to use the initial version of hosted SharePoint. "Many businesses traditionally do not jump right into new versions of software. They wait until the first service pack is released to take advantage of the upgrades and enhancements that Microsoft makes available," said Ravi Agarwal, chief executive officer of "Our resellers now have the opportunity to offer hosted Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SP1 to those companies who have previously been reluctant to use the earlier version."
