“We are delighted to be the 100th partner to enroll in Bamboo’s highly successful Partner Advantage Program, and proud also to be Bamboo’s first Scottish partner,” said Kevin Park, Director of Sunnyside Consulting. “We are partnering with Bamboo to help make the Microsoft SharePoint platform even more useful and relevant, both to existing users and new users alike. We have recently incorporated the Bamboo World Clock and Weather Web Part and the Stock Quote Web Part on the portal homepage of a multinational oil company, officially unveiled on the 21st of October. I have also used Bamboo Nation Community to research characteristics of Bamboo Web Parts for specific client scenarios,” said Park.
For over three years, Bamboo has been a leader in the SharePoint market, delivering over 40 off-the-shelf products that provide enhanced features and functionality to SharePoint out-of-the-box. Bamboo leverages its community feedback and recursive product development process to anticipate customer requirements and rapidly bring new products to market. Bamboo launched the Partner Advantage Program in 2007 to provide its expanding and diverse customer base with cost-effective and rapid delivery of value-added solutions. IMPACT Management, headquartered in New York, was one of the first Partners to join the program.
“Our mission is to deliver SharePoint solutions that meet or exceed expectations and deliver measurable value to our customers,” said Pat Esposito, President and CEO of IMPACT Management. “We were one of the first to join Bamboo Solutions Partner Advantage Program a year ago and have found that the relationship provides the products we need to accelerate projects. We also share a deep process and technology understanding with Bamboo on how to maximize the value of SharePoint implementations,” said Esposito.
“SharePoint is not a portal or a knowledge management system,” said Mike Tanner, CEO, Bamboo Solutions Corporation. “SharePoint is the key infrastructure for collaborative productivity in the enterprise. And that creates a tremendous opportunity for systems integrators and solution providers,” said Tanner.
Bamboo’s Partner Advantage Program provides partners with increased exposure to Bamboo’s global customer base and access to Bamboo’s engineering and product support teams. Partners also leverage the expertise and experience of Bamboo’s online community, Bamboo Nation™. All Partner Advantage partners receive customer exposure via Bamboo’s highly trafficked online store, demonstration software licenses, technical support and proposal/quotation assistance, client referrals, participation in co-marketing activities and the option to pursue private label opportunities. Most recently, Bamboo has released the Bamboo Partner Essentials Suite, an exclusive product bundle of strategic Web Parts, designed to help Bamboo’s Partner Advantage Program Members rapidly architect and develop value-added client solutions for SharePoint. The Partner Advantage Program reflects Bamboo’s commitment to provide its expanding and diverse customer base with cost-effective and rapid delivery of collaborative solutions on the Microsoft SharePoint platform.
