RSM, a global network of independent audit and consulting firms, today officially announced a reseller and implementation partnership with Powell Software, a global leader in ready-to-use collaboration software solutions.

The two companies have formalized this relationship, forging an agreement to resell and implement the intranet solution, Powell 365 and the SharePoint designer, Powell Manager, in the United States.

The pre-built intranet platform renders a compelling and cultivated digital experience for employees. Powell 365 is a market leading solution that boosts efficiency, productivity and profit within the modern digital workplace.

Powell Manager is a SharePoint designer that revolutionizes digital workplace projects. In conjunction with Powell Manager, Powell 365 goes beyond an intranet-in-a-box. In as little as 2 to 4 weeks, Powell Manager enables the creation of a fully customized modern intranet based on Office 365 and SharePoint, without any coding.

While significantly cutting implementation time and costs, companies who implement a Powell 365 collaborative intranet with Powell Manager will also have seamless site deployments, updates and management. Together, Powell Manager and Powell 365 generate and maintain the digital workplace companies seek for their employees.
