What We Do
Lightlever specializes in SharePoint and Office 365 solutions
that help your business or non-profit thrive.
Microsoft SharePoint can transform your business and help your teams get more done, from anywhere, in less time. Maybe you have the skills to get your SharePoint site collection to really work, but do you have the time? Lightlever can work with you as needed to run the whole project or just fill in the gaps, support you, and train your users.
Lightlever has spent thousands of hours teaching people how to use SharePoint effectively, and we have a mania for finding the best way to do anything. This has helped us develop templates and methods to produce great business solutions, fast. Our consultants have the technical and communications skills to build SharePoint solutions that work for you.

Lightlever created a Vacation Calendar for the City of Langford, used by all staff, which includes vacation requests and manager approvals. We used SharePoint tools: a customized Calendar List, InfoPath forms, and a SharePoint Designer Workflow to send approval emails and update calendar entries.
As Monk developed a new product line (DIRTT), it was decided that there were some opportunities to streamline and improve the existing tools used for project management and communication. A new system was required that would make it easier to share project plans, tasks, and drawings with Monk staff and their consultants and clients.
Veris office servers were aging and becoming difficult to use and expensive to maintain. Most Veris consultants work at clients sites or mobile offices, so having systems that work well no matter where you are is key. Veris needed a cost-effective way to standardize software, centralize information sharing, and improve communication.
With branches spread out across large distances, and staff working multiple shifts, a unifying “Staff Intranet” is a key component of VIRL’s business model. Lightlever won a competitive bid process in January 2015, and by June a fully functional SharePoint-based staff intranet was complete.
