As a business owner, you often find yourself performing lengthy or repetitive tasks that can take valuable time away from the big picture ideas you should be focusing on. Software like SharePoint can help streamline your business’ various processes, improving the efficiency and the effectiveness of your organization. Maybe it’s not surprising, then, that 80% of Fortune 500 companies use it daily. Custom Sharepoint Solutions and Development
Unfortunately, a software application like SharePoint can’t address all business needs out-of-the-box. You’ve probably scanned the list of off the shelf software seeking for the perfect solution but found yourself disappointed. Although powerful, SharePoint has its limitations and those limitations can cause a lot of issues and leave your team running inefficiently.

SharePoint customization services have proven to solve minor but recurring issues that stifle productivity and cost your business valuable time and money.

Although SharePoint addresses several common business needs with just a bit of configuration, every business does things a little differently, and these quirks in process sometimes make it necessary to customize SharePoint. Implementing customizations the wrong way, however, can lead to headaches down the line.
Common use cases SharePoint handles well include document storage and collaboration, publishing information to be consumed by personnel, and simple forms and workflows.
As our clients’ needs grow too complex for SharePoint to handle out-of-the-box, we often implement customizations such as search pages to surface information exactly as they want to see it, branding the intranet with client fonts and colors, and pulling data from 3rd party systems.
The problem is that SharePoint’s “extensibility points”—sanctioned areas and methods that developers can use to modify a system—are complex and ever-changing. Over the past 10 years, we’ve seen full-trust solutions, sandbox solutions, SharePoint services and provider-hosted apps, and now the SharePoint Framework. Each of these approaches has pros and cons, and if an in-house developer is not keeping up with the latest changes, they can easily pick the wrong approach, leading to difficulty in upgrading, migrating, or receiving regular updates from Microsoft.
