Commentaires: It is great tool, we are enjoying developing SharePoint sites to our organization, we believe it is a "Must have" tool for all organizations that deal with SharePoint. We use ShortPoint for the Intranet Portal, The Document Management System and Project Management System and soon

Avantages: 1- Delivery Time: ShortPoint drastically reduces the branding, design and development efforts required to build a state-of-art intranet. We were able to build our intranet portal within two weeks only with one developer who was not working dedicated as well! 2- Ease of Development: Given that branding SharePoint as not like branding any normal website, because it requires some SharePoint knowledge, we believe that ShortPoint is the ultimate tool that should be used by all organizations that have a SharePoint implementations. Using ShortPoint inserter, which hosts a great collection of reusable components/elements, the developer don't need to know about SharePoint branding anymore. Another core aspect of ShortPoint is the instance changes that you can do on the site. no need for deployment, IIS restarts, etc. Just edit the page, do your changes using ShortPoint editing features, and publish, that's it. 3- SharePoint Upgrade: This is a critical one, SharePoint upgrades will be much easier because ShortPoint will reduce the customization you need to do in SharePoint. SharePoint can be thought as a layer on top of SharePoint. 4- Development Cost: Developing advances intranets without ShorPoint will cost you millions depending on the features you require. With ShortPoint, you can achieve the same with almost no cost through internal resources/developers. Learning ShortPoint is extremely easy and actually it is fun to use.

Inconvénients: Ealier, few components were not rendering in IE the same way it was rendering in Chrome or Firefox. But that was fixed later on

ShortPoint gets fast, great looking results

Commentaires: Excellent - this product allowed me to complete a very challenging rebranding exercise in a very short amount of time. Without it, I wouldn't have been able to complete the project and would still be writing custom web parts using SharePoint framework. Customer support was also excellent. I logged an urgent ticket and had someone on a call within half an hour - and the support person really knew their stuff. Normal requests are answered within a few hours.

Avantages: It's fast to get a great looking website up and running in no time. The components it has look great and having the ability to copy elements from their example sites really speeds things up. Most of their web parts can be connected to lists or libraries which is necessary as a license is needed to edit these web parts so using connected lists/libraries puts some control back into users hands. Very flexible and powerful software collection and there's really not much it can't do to a SharePoint site to make it look the way you want.

Inconvénients: Requiring a license to edit is a bit of a downer - wish there was some intermediate license or method for others to edit pages with ShortPoint elements on them without requiring the full blown license. Although you can add ShortPoint web parts to modern pages, you can't use the site customiser if your home page is not a classic page. Looking forward to the site customiser for modern pages - once that arrives, will really be pleased.

Commentaires: i have worked with ShortPoint almost since the product was launched and i have met most of the people and they are very dedicated and really dedicated to ShortPoint. They are truly a marvelous group who stayed dedicated to their dream and made the DREAM real. i would recommend ShortPoint to any company to use - it is just an AMAZING product!!! The BEST and EASIEST tool around for SharePoint designing and making SharePoint more AWESOME.

Avantages: The ease of use and the amount of features and the fact that they are continuously adding new features thus making ShortPoint better and better. i have looked at the other software available and they just do not compare to ShortPoint and with all the the features you get with it. AND the price of ShortPoint is also a winning factor. It really makes the SharePoint designer's life a millions times better and at the same time gives the user an amazing SharePoint experience.

Inconvénients: The cheap price - just kidding. I love the product

Commentaires: As a single SharePoint admin looking to roll out SharePoint Online to 11 worldwide offices of not so tech savvy users, I knew I had to make it easy to use & look good / branded. ShortPoint allowed me to do this faster and better than I could ever imagine. It strikingly improved our users involvement and participation in our company's SharePoint portal. Additionally, ShortPoint stays current with all the latest updates from Microsoft and listens to user feedback for new features.

Avantages: ShortPoint gives you the ability to display any data in any way you want in SharePoint in just a few clicks. You can create tiles, tables, widgets, lists, banners, scrollers, text boxes, counters, backgrounds, etc... over 60 customizable elements to drop in Modern and Legacy pages. Quickly build branded pages and dashboard. Also their support is the best.

Inconvénients: Originally they did not have many examples on how to use the product, but now they have https://demos.shortpoint.com/ which lets you copy and paste entire designs and examples directly into your SharePoint pages.

Simplified SharePoint site designs with ShortPoint.

Commentaires: Through simplified creation of SharePoint portals, sites and dashboards, ShortPoint have allowed for my team to continually engage staff. Dynamic tools, a large library of demos and templates allows for us to create captivating portals. The technical and sales team have also been quite helpful, sometimes going beyond the call if i may add, as they assisted in the creation of an initial dashboard, which lead my team to educating themselves even more about REST api and other methods of pulling data.

Avantages: 1. Ease of implementation - Adding ShortPoint to our farm was relatively easy, taking approximately 10 minutes to install and be ready to go.
2. Upon installation, my team was able to hit the ground running; designing gorgeous user friendly interfaces for various team sites with minimal SharePoint experience.
3. The Demo site is of great assistance, giving inspiration to the possibilities, along with easy of reuse of their templates.
4. The support team at ShortPoint is great! through their assistance, we were able to create dashboards and undertake a couple of integrations. They are prompt to respond, easy to communicate with and very helpful.

Inconvénients: The platform seems to perform better in particular browsers. As a result, a lot of my team would be mindful of which browser they're using when accessing sharepoint related content.

Commentaires: Good potential in the product it, but people behind it needs to go through Sales and Customer Service Training. It's not a free product, so if the customer paid for it, they also need some tech support.
SLA process needs maturity.
Tested trail version for evaluation of the product and drop it after some unprofessional emails been send out through Tech support.

Avantages: Ease of Use
Rich in Features
On-premise deployment
No Subscription model

Inconvénients: Horrible Tech Support and Customer Service
SLA is based as per there own convenience, even for a Customer who is Enterprise base organization, they don't offer value-added service.
Support Ticketing system is 'Fresh Desk' where you submit your Ticket, and level of urgency is been determine by Shortpoint.
No phone support.
No Point of contact. Only an Online Ticketing system through that end user can communicate to them.
Very Few employees, CEO and Tech support are the same people, sending communication through different emails.

Hi Irfan,

Thank you for downloading a Free Trial of ShortPoint and trying the product out. We're glad that you liked the product.

We at ShortPoint choose our customers very carefully, and ShortPoint decided not to onboard you as a paid customer at the end of the trial period.

We are very sorry to hear about your unusual experience with our customer support, despite providing you with Onboarding Sessions and multiple support calls.

We would like to highlight that we have one of the highest customer satisfaction rate in the industry and very large enterprise customers across the globe.

While we try to support our Paid customers under agreed SLAs, there could be certain requests from Free Trial users that do not fall under the SLAs.

If the requests are unrealistic and unjustified from our Free Trial users, unfortunately, we cannot support them, but inform the customer that this is outside the scope of evaluation.

Thank you.

ShortPoint Fan

Avantages: The software is easy to use, you can deploy modern SharePoint sites with relative ease, whether is on-prem or on the cloud, the product has made customizing SharePoint a very easy process for us that's value for money.

Inconvénients: for the time we have used the software there is none, all the underlying issues and bugs that were there initially were resolved.

Avantages: ShortPoint allowed us to bypass many of SharePoint's design limitations and allowed us to create a beautiful site with a simple, easy-to-use interface. We loved its ability to transform SharePoint to be fully responsive allowing our users to view from any size browser window. We also loved all of the page layout options with sections, rows, and columns. The software was easy to learn and use and we were able to design an entire site in a very short time period. Our ShortPoint rep was very easy to work with and responsive to all of our questions. We are pleased with the product.

Inconvénients: ShortPoint helped us a lot with site theme and with page design. One thing that we wished it could accommodate better is bringing document library and list content types through to a page with full searching and filtering capabilities. As a workaround, we put SharePoint's document library web part into a ShortPoint panel. If ShortPoint could design something with similar functionality (searching & filtering on columns) to SharePoint's web part, it would be great!

Boost Your SharePoint Sites with ShortPoint!

Commentaires: The organization is creating a new Intranet portal using SharePoint as the software. Without having to spend a lot of money, ShortPoint has enabled us to design and develop a user friendly Intranet and condense multiple locations of content into one location (SharePoint). This will be a huge benefit to all associates in our organization.

Avantages: - Large quantity of web parts available
- Training tools and customer/technical support
- Works for Modern SharePoint sites
- Ability to make a page look like a web page (and not just a basic SharePoint page)
- Cost of subscription license seems very fair for the features provided

Inconvénients: - Still some web parts that are not available (like a stock ticker)
- Theme Builder is not fully developed and available for Modern sites yet
