Learn more about Portal Systems, it’s history and corporate philosophy.
Enterprise Content Management and SharePoint competence in one place
As one of the few IT system houses on the market, Portal Systems combines ECM (Enterprise Content Management) and SharePoint expertise under one roof. With more than 18 years of experience and expertise from projects involving more than 300 customers, we develop and market digital business applications for Shareflex®, our Business Application Platform based on SharePoint (Online) and Microsoft 365.
No matter how you approach the digital transformation — with on-premises solutions, Office 365 / SharePoint Online or a hybrid model — we provide you with flexible product solutions that are optimally composed of software licenses, services, comprehensive and customer-oriented support.
Our services – Consulting, Project Management and IT
Portal Systems stands for experience, competence and reliability. Our services always focus on the greatest possible benefit for the customer. Starting from an in-depth consultation, we accompany our customers from the technical implementation to the end of the project. In our dealings with our customers and partners, we rely on a Hanseatic mindset and thus long-term business relationships based on trust and convincing competence.
Our team – Respect and team spirit constitute our strength
We are committed to promoting the development of all our employees. Through their motivation and creativity, they secure the future of our company.
As an employer, we also feel committed to the social security of our employees. Therefore, an appropriate compensation is a matter of course for us. Just like a corporate culture characterised by mutual respect and team spirit. This enables us to always attract the best talents for our work.
History – Evolution in change
PSC Portal Systems Consulting GmbH was founded by André Hoseas in Hamburg in 2001. Right from the start, the company’s main focus has been on services related to Enterprise Content Management (ECM). When the second shareholder, Frank von Orlikowski, joined the company in 2003 and the Portal Systems branch in Potsdam was founded, in the following year, the product range was ultimately extended to Microsoft SharePoint.
Transformation from a systems house to a product manufacturer
Starting the development of the “Business Application Framework” for SharePoint (since September 2017: “Shareflex”), Portal Systems entered a new chapter in its corporate history in early 2013. Individual SharePoint applications can be created, managed and maintained quickly and easily with this in-house development. This important milestone marked the establishment of Portal Systems as a fully-fledged product manufacturer on the market. In order to further strengthen its own positioning, the previously independent companies in Hamburg and Potsdam were finally merged in 2014.
And the journey continues…
The expansion of our partner network to market Shareflex, our platform for business applications, and the solutions based on it, is one of our current and future priorities. Since the first partner agreement was signed in 2015, a number of further partnerships with renowned system houses have been established.
In 2018 Portal Systems became Microsoft Gold Partner “Collaboration and Content” and “Application Development”. Thus, with our own product family “Shareflex Classic” for SharePoint 2016 and 2019 as well as “Shareflex Online” for SharePoint Online and Microsoft Office 365, Portal Systems is optimally positioned on the market as an ECM provider.
The transformation of Portal Systems into an incorporated company (AG)
A further milestone in our history was the transformation into Portal Systems AG on November 15, 2018. With this step, we made sure that the company is perfectly prepared for the future and can continue its growth course.
Appropriate measures and structures had already been taken in the run-up to the conversion into an AG. These include, for example, the clear definition of business units and the establishment of a reporting and controlling system.
In addition to the increase in equity capital, the regular certification of our product development, the introduction of an internal QM system in accordance with ISO 9001 and the establishment and expansion of our partner sales, all serve the aspects of “growth” and “future security”.
