- (1888PressRelease) October 07, 2010 - San Francisco, CA -- The Make-A-Wish Foundation of America, the largest wish-granting charity in the world that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions, chooses a line of Virtosoftware's products and services ( http://www.virtosoftware.com ) to enhance its SharePoint environment.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation of America has selected a line of five products by Virtosoftware to allow its SharePoint environment to be more effective and powerful through adding a variety of new robust features and, at the same time, bringing a level of simplicity to management and development functions. Among the components chosen by The Foundation are Virto Password Change and Password Reset web parts, ( http://www.virtosoftware.com ) Virto Active Directory User Service, Ajax Calendar as well as Virto Ajax Data View. The line of Virtosoftware web parts and services helps the Foundation to achieve a new level of efficiency in very different sectors of its work ranging from user account management to web site development.
Virto Password Change and Virto Password Reset Web parts provide a self-service facility for more than 1,000 users of the Foundation working SharePoint-based environment to manage their enterprise credentials. These Web parts benefit the Foundation by reducing helpdesk requests and administrative overhead as well as helping the information technology staff support a robust password policy. Virto Active Directory User Service ( http://www.virtosoftware.com ) allows the users to manage their Active Directory contact information via a web interface, as well as providing a convenient tool for information technology helpdesk of the Foundation to manage Active Directory accounts.
Virto Ajax Calendar ( http://www.virtosoftware.com ) for Microsoft SharePoint provides a feature-rich interface for managing dates on the Foundation project sites. The users no longer need to use a SharePoint form to adjust project tasks: they can edit them directly on the calendar Web part. The dynamic and colorful interface makes it easier for them to identify and manage tasks. Virto Ajax Data View for Microsoft SharePoint allows developers of the Make-A-Wish Foundation to rapidly create feature-rich interfaces in SharePoint for managing data in SQL tables, without using the SharePoint Designer (SPD). The Web part reduces both development and deployment time by allowing developers to design interfaces for SQL tables and views directly in SharePoint.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Founded in 1980 when a group of caring volunteers helped a young boy fulfill his dream of becoming a police officer, the Foundation is now the largest wish-granting charity in the world, with 65 chapters in the United States and its territories. With the help of generous donors and nearly 25,000 volunteers, the Make-A-Wish Foundation grants a wish every 40 minutes and has granted more than 188,000 wishes in the United States since its inception.
