RESTON, VA (PRWEB) JUNE 28, 2007
Bamboo Solutions Corporation today announced the availability of Bamboo Solutions Application Template Extensions, a set of bundled Web Part solutions designed to extend the capabilities of the Application Templates for Windows SharePoint Services. Packaged to supplement templates developed by Microsoft, Bamboo Solutions Application Template Extensions enhance the user experience and assist in adopting and rapidly implementing team sites in both Windows SharePoint Services and Office SharePoint Server.
The Bamboo Solutions Application Template Extensions are tailored to each of the Application Templates for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, also known as the “Fantastic 40,” and are comprised of either site or server template solutions. Functional areas include Business Management/Finance, Human Resources, Operations/IT, Project Tracking/Product Management, Sales/Marketing, and Specialized/Verticals solutions.
“As a Microsoft Partner, we are pleased to work alongside the SharePoint Products and Technology Team to illustrate the ease with which Office SharePoint collaboration sites can be developed. The Application Templates are powerful and well-thought-out solutions that provide a jump-start to any organization. As we release more Web Parts, we will continue to enhance these templates,” said Mr. Lam Le, COO Bamboo Solutions Corporation.
“With a growing set of commercial 3rd party web parts, such as the Bamboo Solutions Application Template Extensions, customers of SharePoint Products and Technologies now have the ability to accelerate and quickly build their solutions based on Application Templates,” said Bob Sutton, Senior Product Manager for Microsoft. “In addition, these new template extensions further broaden the out-of-the-box functionality already provided in the Application Templates, thus enhancing the user experience.”
Beginning with the Job Requisition and Interview Management Template, Bamboo Solutions is offering these bundles for immediate download and purchase via Bamboo’s online store (http://bamboosolutions.com). The Job Requisition and Interview Management Template is designed to help recruiters streamline the process of managing the creation of job requisitions, coordinating interviews, collecting interview feedback, and tracking the results of the interviews all in one place. The template allows the assignment of responsibility for requisitions, candidates, and interviews to people in the organization. The Job Requisition and Interview Management Template Extension from Bamboo allows users to further customize the Office SharePoint template to include time-based alerts and customized messaging, search through large numbers of applicants, and perform metadata searches (i.e. resumes) and present open requisitions on a world map view. This and all other Application Template Extensions from Bamboo feature installation wizard, detailed application notes, and online support.
