Mercury has evolved.
But why? you ask
SharePoint has been a great platform over the years but it’s functionality and features had become a little dated and behind the times, leaving gaps for other, smaller, platform providers to nip in and try to take away what has long been SharePoint domain. The “classic” SharePoint publishing infrastructure which we used to deliver intranets is of an other era, is slow and not very flexible/
To improve the Office 365 platform, Microsoft have poured in billions of dollars make it the most secure, scalable and usable platform on the planet. Microsoft continue to invest huge amounts of effort and money into the Office 365 platform to ensure that it stays ahead of the competition. A large part of their effort has been to modernise the SharePoint Online platform and the Modern SharePoint platform is the result.
As SharePoint continues to evolve, our Mercury intranet product has had to evolve to ensure that we provide the best Digital Employee Experience through our Modern Mercury Digital Workplace.
Modern Mercury Digital Workplace brings the advanced functionality of our Classic Mercury product into the Modern SharePoint world. The modernisation of our product allows us to deliver functionality that’s just not possible in the classic SharePoint world. Functionality like :
