Why Build Solutions on SharePoint
Why would we develop a product on top of SharePoint as opposed to a standalone application? Well, the reasons are plentiful and can be broken down into three major categories: time to market, integration with your existing infrastructure and access to an expansive development community.
Time to Market
To put it simply, when you develop an application using the SharePoint framework, the plumbing is already there. Our development team has access to, and therefore doesn’t have to rebuild, tons of standard functionality including:
- User and Role Security
- Workflow Engine
- Enterprise Search
- Standard Web Parts
- User Interface Framework
- Persistence Layers
- CRUD UI Screens
- File Upload/Management
- Deployment Framework
Integration with Existing Infrastructure
The second, and equally as powerful, reason to utilize SharePoint to develop applications is the existing integrations with the products you use on a daily basis. In addition to the Microsoft Office Suite, each Microsoft Dynamics application offers a SharePoint portal providing instant access to your ERP or CRM data. DynamicPoint leverages this existing functionality and takes it a step further; providing the most functionality to our customers at a fraction of the effort.
Access to the SharePoint Development Community
DynamicPoint developers are part of a greater community of programmers that are building applications using the SharePoint framework. Our niche is our vast knowledge of the Dynamics suite and the supporting integration technology. Whether using DynamicPoint, an internal resource, or another SharePoint service provider, you can be confident that they have access to a plethora of resources to assist them in getting their job done.

Why Customer’s Love DynamicPoint
IT systems are never perfect. The difference between a good and average (or poor) experience is made when a vendor proves themselves as a true business Partner by ensuring the customer is getting the value they expect from their product, it’s this character and culture of their team that validates my decision to partner with DynamicPoint.

DynamicPoint is very knowledgeable, quick turnaround times and great customer service. What they deliver is always what I asked for or more. One of my most favorite vendors!
Great expertise with both Microsoft Dynamics GP and SharePoint. DynamicPoint was very responsive and professional throughout the engagement. The product was exactly what was desired, and was bug free upon delivery. I highly recommend working with DynamicPoint for any GP customization or SharePoint development.
