BeMo Project Online 2013 now running on SP1 with April 2014 CU

BeMo is pleased to announce it has completed the update of its BeMo Project Online 2013 hosted service to Service Pack 1 (SP1) along with installation of the April 2014 Cumulative Update (CU). These upgrades were actually well planned in the months that preceded its rollout to production and were completed during the weekend of July 5 with no or minimum impact to our customers.

These upgrades contain a ton of fixes as referenced in the KBs found in here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2850035
