Why the name ‘TrecStone’?
The name ‘TrecStone’ is a derivative of a ‘cairn’ – a simple stone marker used to guide travelers on a path. It shows the way, the path, the direction – to keep travelers from straying and getting lost. It shows the shortest and easiest way to get from one step to the next.
The concept applies to technology as well. As the number of products and product capabilities continue to expand, the process of implementing them successfully and efficiently becomes more challenging. Organizations and users can benefit from the guidance of others that have walked the path and know how to move forward.
SharePoint is a massive product with so much functionality that it’s impossible for one person, or even most organizations to master. TrecStone focuses on strategic planning and usage of SharePoint and works with partners to fill custom development, design and other needs as they arise.
