SharePoint is a web-based collaborative platform that integrates with Microsoft Office. Organizations use SharePoint to create websites. You can use it as a secure place to store, organize, share, and access information from any device.
It allows groups to set up a centralized, password-protected space for document sharing. Documents can be stored, downloaded and edited, then uploaded for continued sharing.
For a website-based collaboration platform SharePoint is easy to maintain and, at its fundamental level, easy for business users to understand.
