MS SharePoint provides the opportunity to group data and share data in a way that no other tool presently offers. Some of the highlights are listed below:
SharePoint integrates with other existing desktop tools such as Microsoft Outlook, Word, and Excel, increasing the productivity of the existing tools.
The end-user interface is easy-to-use, with processes that users can identify and use within their areas of business.
SharePoint promotes asynchronous business processes, offering a excellent means to conduct business outside of scheduled business meetings.
SharePoint manages version and change history, allowing users to open documents for sharing, while maintaining control of the final document product.
SharePoint offers decentralized site management, allowing groups and departments manage site content without having to overly rely to technical support resources.
SharePoint provides a standardized development platform, on which IT staff can build and deliver solutions to meet specific enterprise needs.
