Benefits for your organisation

SharePoint is a powerful tool - there is no denying it. However, to get the most out of it you have to use add on products; InfoPath is one such product.  It allows you to collect data via forms within a SharePoint environment so that you can store that data and either process it or report upon it in the future.

Benefits for you as an individual

You will learn how to get the very best out of InfoPath and how to use it as a business tool to potentially automate business processes within a SharePoint environment.  As well as creating forms you will also benefit from understanding how to troubleshoot existing forms.
