What Does SharePoint Offer
So we have all heard a lot about SharePoint, but what exactly is it? The punch line according to Microsoft is that it is “The Business Collaboration Platform for the Enterprise and the Internet.” What it really boils down to is that SharePoint provides masses of out-of-the-box functionality, enabling an organization to quickly create internal intranets and/or external facing partner portals. In addition to this standard functionality, it also serves as a platform to develop and deploy custom content and functionality. The diagram below summarizes all aspects of its capabilities.
SharePoint Sites provides a single infrastructure for all your business Web sites. Share documents with colleagues, manage projects with partners, and publish information to customers.
SharePoint Communities delivers great collaboration tools—and a single platform to manage them. Make it easy for people to share ideas and work together the way they want.
SharePoint Content makes content management easy. Set up compliance measures with features like document types, retention polices, and automatic content sorting—and then let people work naturally in Microsoft Office.

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.Ron T.
