Learn why we make SharePoint the best CRM

bird-tweetsSharePoint is everywhere

Microsoft says that SharePoint is their most successful server product ever with 36.5 million in user license sales reported, between the years 2006-2011; and an estimated 2 billion in total sales reported as of 2013.

60% of U.S. companies have a SharePoint environment deployed somewhere within their organization, and 78%+ of all Fortune 500 companies have purchased it according to Gartner. Gartner tells us that SharePoint is going to be a consumer product like the iPhone.

The SharePoint community is huge. Thousands of Microsoft partners around the world work with SharePoint technologies, creating one of software technology’s biggest partner communities.

Because SharePoint is so widely deployed, and available in 70+ languages, the technology is very low risk for SMBs and enterprises. It’s also very cost effective, because SharePoint Foundation is included with Windows Server.

SharePoint includes all ingredients needed for CRM

SharePoint has all the components to act as the foundation for a full-featured, enterprise CRM system.

SharePoint is the most powerful collaborative platform in the market and includes native Office integration, powerful document management, workflow automation capabilities, alert management, connectivity with external systems, BI components, a powerful search engine and more. SharePoint is multi-tenant, allowing very large deployments with very low risk. It’s multilingual in 70+ available languages.

No other system can compete against SharePoint because of its native integration with Office tools like Outlook and its native Excel integration allowing mass importing, exporting, or editing of data.

SharePoint’s ready-made platform allowed BPA to develop a complete CRM, without having to start from ”scratch”, and, in turn, BPA CRM gives complete end-user capabilities to SharePoint.
