Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT), a leading information technology consulting
firm serving global 2000 and other large enterprise customers throughout
North America, today announced it will exhibit at the Microsoft
SharePoint Conference 2012. The SharePoint Conference, which will be

comprehensive event for IT professionals dedicated to SharePoint and
Microsoft’s SharePoint 2013 platform enables businesses to improve
collaborative processes and enhance access to an organization’s
knowledge base. As one of only seven Microsoft Worldwide National

information across channels and collaborate on people-driven business
processes. These companies are in search of solutions that provide the
tools needed to effectively collaborate with co-workers, clients and
partners,” said Aaron Sloman, general manager of Perficient’s Microsoft
National Business Group. “The SharePoint 2013 platform plays a key role
in bringing people together, making social collaboration, enterprise
search and mobile access possible. It has the power to help
organizations share knowledge, enhance communication and drive teamwork

Witness Perficient SharePoint Expertise in Action
During the conference, Microsoft and Perficient client Jones
Lang LaSalle (JLL) will discuss the work Perficient did to
successfully implement SharePoint 2013 for Jones Lang LaSalle’s new
website. JLL has used SharePoint as a self-service web content
management system since 2008. However, in recent years, JLL has seen
growth in the site’s mobile device usage. The company worked in
partnership with Microsoft and Perficient to develop and execute on
strategies that provide a positive, more-focused mobile experience.
