Easy to Create. Easy to Remember URLs for SharePoint 2010

If you're using SharePoint, then you know the impact of strong information architecture on the overall effectiveness of your SharePoint site. The hierarchy of your sites is critical for things like security and permissions, governance, navigation and general usability. However, the bigger the hierarchy the longer the URL and if you have a large site with lots of depth your URLs can get rather unruly. SP URL Manager from Protiviti allows you to preserve the IA you worked hard to create while creating short vanity URLs that are easy to remember and get people to what they need quickly.

Here's a quick example, say your IT team has just finished the migration plan for Office 365 and want to share it with everyone before the cutover next week. On your SharePoint intranet site that migration page is located in the Pages Library on the Office365 team site, located under the Application Services Groups site, located under the IT Department site which is located under the main Administration site of your intranet. Using SP URL Manager for SharePoint 2010 you could create a short easy to remember URL to use in staff communications, printed materials, etc.
