The goal of the METROfactory is to create a secure and reliable application that reuses your already established SharePoint infrastructure along with the information stored on it. Inspired by Windows 8 design, the rather complex world of the SharePoint information architecture was translated into an intuitive and modern graphical user interface. The combination of offline capabilities, SSL-based data transmission, VPN capabilities of Windows 8 and colorful design convinced the SharePoint community straight away. METROpoint graphical user interface displays information stored in site collections, lists and libraries using the Windows 8 design language. METROpoint is touch-enabled and supports all Windows 8 multi-touch gestures. Connect to your SharePoint infrastructure within seconds and work with team members using the latest information available inside of your organization. Open, view and edit files using the Microsoft Office Web Apps or your local client applications (Word, Excel, etc.).
