Basingstoke, Hampshire, United Kingdom, 2010/04/26 - ICS Solutions and CONTEMPORARY have entered into a mutual partnership to help CONTEMPORARY clients implement SharePoint 2010 through their Dip into SharePoint 2010 site.
ICS Solutions and CONTEMPORARY have entered into a mutual partnership. ICS Solutions are the UK's no 1 SharePoint partner with over 300 SharePoint Consultants, over 8 years experience and delivery of 150 projects, whilst CONTEMPORARY have delivered Business Intelligence Solutions since the early 90’s, helping their customers get access to the information they need to make the right choices.
CONTEMPORARY have recently signed up as a partner to ICS Solutions, who are working with CONTEMPORARY to help their clients implement SharePoint 2010 through their Dip into SharePoint 2010 site. ICS Solutions are providing the Dip into SharePoint 2010 platform as a free service to demonstrate their capability, expertise and service offerings in SharePoint 2010.
Solutions Business Director at ICS Solutions, Andrew Smith says; “ICS Solutions have been successfully working with partners for over 4 years with the DreamTeam Service and the SharePoint Advantage Program for Partners builds on this success. By providing our partners with access to our SharePoint service propositions, IP and resource pool, we can help them win more business and add more value to their installed base of clients.”
The partnership between ICS Solutions (ics.net) and CONTEMPORARY will work both ways with CONTEMPORARY taking advantage of ICS’s skills to deliver SharePoint projects to their clients, and ICS Solutions leveraging CONTEMPORARY’s experience and credibility in the Business Intelligence market. The organisations will engage with each other across the full sales cycle, and they will be undertaking a series of seminars in May to launch joint 2010 services.
Andy Steer, Managing Director for CONTEMPORARY says: “ICS are one of Microsoft’s most highly accredited partners and have an illustrious history of providing solutions across a range of sectors with particular specialism in all things SharePoint and .NET. The partnership will work both ways with CONTEMPORARY taking advantage of ICS’s SharePoint Skills to improve our hit rate and ICS using our experience and credibility in the Business Intelligence market. I believe this presents an excellent opportunity for CONTEMPORARY to not only increase revenue and utilisation by delivering BI Solutions to ICS customers and prospects but also to more effectively follow up on any broader SharePoint requirements we find.”
