Match Point is based on mass customization, a well-known industry concept. Robust, mature and extensible components can be combined into a large number of individual, but affordable solutions. The maximizing of the configurability and reusability reduces the effort for individual development, total cost of ownership and project risks. In addition, the release capability is improved with respect to future changes in SharePoint or Office 365 and reduces dependence on developers and implementation partners.

Based on the AIIM Industry Watch SharePoint Report (www.aiim.org) MatchPoint improves an average of 7 out of 10 most-mentioned SharePoint weaknesses in the areas of usability, technical issues, organizational Issues, information management and upgrade issues.
