In this episode, we follow-up with Funko Inc. one year after Microsoft's team + MVPs swooped in for an intranet makeover: SharePoint Swoop. Hear from Funko's Kurt Dicus, VP of IT, and Scott Christensen, SharePoint Consultant, as well their product development team called The Shire to find out all they have implemented since November 2017. We also talk with Sean Squires, senior program manager on the SharePoint engineering team, and Bob German, Partner Technology Architect, about how they helped create a custom SharePoint site design behind the scenes during filming of Swoop. Funko put the tech under their toys and kept growing their intranet in lockstep with the fast growth of their business. #SharePointSwoop
