SharePoint by Microsoft is a web application platform that offers a set of tools that can be used to develop intranet portals, provide document and file management, initiate collaboration, and link to social networks. You can use it as a secure place to store, organize, share, and access information from almost any device. The SharePoint platform also offers many more process and workflow capabilities, enhancing your business processes and increasing productivity.
SharePoint offers collaboration tools for everyone across your organization as well as outside contacts. The features allow information to be easily communicated and efficiently organized. SharePoint’s capabilities are further extended to cast a wider net of communication when it is paired with Yammer, the enterprise social network.
Project-based businesses value tools that make streamlined communication easy, and SharePoint provides just the tools needed for collaborative work. SharePoint can be purchased in the cloud as a stand-alone offering or it can be included as part of Microsoft Office 365.
