SharePoint is a CRM solution, a document manager, a shared calendar and many many more...In simple terms SharePoint is a complete business solution. Running inside a browser, SharePoint allows users to collaborate on documents with full versioning control, it allows users to communicate with each other regarding projects, and it allows users to organise their work in a clear and flowing manner.
With SharePoint 2013 comes a whole new batch of features based on social collaboration and user profiling. Users can create their own profile page viewable throughout an organisation and displaying only the information they wish too. Users can also bookmark content creating a unique, dynamic news feed showing updates to the content they have tagged.
As well as out-of-the-box features, SharePoint is fully customisable from user interface to custom applications. Based on .NET© technology, SharePoint 2010 allows custom application development meaning if it doesn't do something exactly the way you want, an application can be developed that will.
Not only can SharePoint run as a company intranet, it can also be configured to run as an extranet or even a front facing internet site allowing for remote users, connecting through a secure logon using your companies existing active directory. SharePoint also supports custom logons and Federated Logon using a 3rd party authentication server.

MCWare IT Solutions can do everything for you from designing the system, installing it on your server and managing it from then on. We can even create custom applications should you need something unique and not included in the box.
