Case Study: Plante Moran is saving $260,000 By Automating Creation of New Sites

Approving new SharePoint site requests and creating and provisioning these sites, while struggling to maintain the uniformity of your taxonomy, look-and-feel, and governance standards, can quickly eat up your IT department's time and resources.
Site Provisioning and Governance Assistant for SharePoint 2010 (SPGA) is a tool from SharePoint Solutions which can completely automate this process from request right through to provisioning, saving your IT department countless hours of labor. 
A completely automated “set it and forget it” site creation solution!
In our new Case Study, read how Plante Moran, one of the nation’s largest CPA and business advisory firms, has saved more than $260,000 and in excess of 3,500 man hoursso far—using this remarkable product.
In case you’re concerned that that number may be a typo, I assure you it is not. These statistics come from the firm’s SharePoint \ Database Architect. Plante Moran is saving well over a quarter of a million dollars annually, just by employing this one tool.  Now that is serious ROI!
Just as importantly, its IT personnel, who used to struggle to keep up with new site requests, provisioning, uniformity and more, no longer have to concern themselves with any of that. The load of site creation busywork has been lifted off their backs, and now happens automatically, leaving them free to do the really important IT tasks.
The case study is a quick 2-minute read which you will find informative and compelling. 
I encourage you to take a moment to read it.
