The Project Momentum event was great success in many ways.
It was our first opportunity to introduce BeMo hosted services to the European market, and it also coincided with the sign up of our first customer in Europe. Presenting alongside a very select audience compromised of Microsoft MVP, Gold and Silver partners that specialize in Project Server, it was the perfect opportunity for BeMo’s VP Joel Lachance to forge new alliances with partners from across Europe and the US. Joel was impressed that many people already knew about BeMo before he introduced himself as BeMo’s VP. Bottom line, we made a lot of new friends during the event.
It was also a great place to gain invaluable industry insight about our offerings. Joel was impressed by the feedback received: “How can you guys do this? I run your service in the EU and not only I was able to have it provisioned quickly, it runs fast” and “BeMo did not spare any effort to add new languages in record time”.
Overall, Microsoft partners clearly understand the value proposition presented by BeMo and welcome the innovation, which in their opinion will greatly benefit their clients by allowing them to spend more resources on consulting and not on hosting.
So what next for BeMo?
We were spot on when we launched BeMo in six new languages earlier this month and we will continue down this path. As a matter of fact, this is creating new opportunities for BeMo and its partners by lowering one important barrier that prevented wide adoption of Project Server.
Additionally, this month we are officially launching new offerings My BeMo VM and My BeMo Pro, for customers that require a dedicated server solution with the ability to integrate the Project Server platform deep into the Microsoft Ecosystem with Exchange, ADDS, Business Intelligence (BI), Excel and Visio Services.
We are also putting new partnerships in place that will enable BeMo to offer even more great add-ons for Project Server.
Stay tuned for more announcement to come over the next few weeks.
