Pros: 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.

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

Overall: 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

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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.

Overall: 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.

Hi Alastair,

Thank you for your feedback. We are about to release the Theme Builder (Site Customizer) for Modern Pages in next few days. After that you will be able to customize each and every aspect of Modern SharePoint Sites with precision. We have added even more features in Theme Builder for Modern Pages.

Pros: 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.

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

Overall: 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.

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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.

Overall: 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.

Pros: Ease of Use

Rich in Features

On-premise deployment

No Subscription model

Cons: 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.

Overall: 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.

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.

Overall: Amazing solution for developing quick and professional intranet site, affordable cost, excellent support team. I have done a lot of search to choose to find a platform for developing our company Intranet site and I do not think there is a better solution on the market today when considering the functionality and cost better that ShortPoint.

Pros: From inception, the utility has been easy to use, adding instant value. Not only was i able to customize look & feel of our SharePoint portal pages, but also introduce useful 'applets' which enhanced user experience.

Cons: Now that my team have been introduced to the software, alot more persons in the organization would like access to ShortPoint. As a result, consideration has to be made to increase the license count (at a cost) to accommodate them for what i belive may be a 'one off' use.

Overall: The support team at ShortPoint has been great thus far. The initial training session covered the essentials, and since then, we have been able to take advantage of the software. Users of our Sharepoint portal have given complements to the team as a result of all the additions ShortPoint introduced to our implementation.

Great looking product!

Pros: can create great looking page in-house without outsourcing to web developers, easy to use

Cons: cannot think of anything at the moment.

Overall: The trial was easy to install and configure. Can create intranet pages in-house. This will also help us when we move to O365 as we won't need to re-write the SharePoint solution
