Toronto, June 16, 2010 - Envision IT is excited to announce that the new public-facing Internet site for
Samuel, Son & Co., Limited, built on SharePoint 2010, is now live! Since 2009 Envision IT has been testing and analyzing the new platform through the Microsoft Beta Program. We are currently engaged in five large deployments on SharePoint 2010 – three of these (including Samuel) as part of the Microsoft Rapid Deployment (RDP) Program, and we are the only Canadian Partner to date with three public facing websites built on 2010.
Samuel, Son & Co., Limited is North America’s 5th largest processor and distributor of carbon steel, stainless steel, and aluminum, including specialty metals and automotive and aerospace alloys. Samuel operates more than 80 privately-held steel processing facilities worldwide, and this 5th generation, family-run business has been in operation for over 155 years.
Envision IT developed a redesigned, refreshed version of the existing public website which was originally constructed in 2000. Since then, not only has Samuel experienced dramatic growth and diversification, so too has the metals service centre industry as a whole and also the internet. The new public website
www.samuel.com reflects these changes, and is a site that better reflects Samuel's image and personality to the world. SharePoint 2010 provides the site with enhanced functionality including superior web content management, taxonomy management and multilingual publishing with workflow.
