Microsoft Partnership

BrightWork has a long-standing partnership with Microsoft, going back to 1999.  BrightWork is one of the very first Microsoft SharePoint Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and the BrightWork product is the only project management solution to be built on every version of SharePoint to date – from 2001 to 2016.

Since 1999, BrightWork has participated in a number of Microsoft partner advisory councils and joint development programs working closely with Microsoft architects in advance of major platform releases.

Today the BrightWork and Microsoft alliance incorporates technology, sales, and marketing to ensure we help customers worldwide to improve their project management success rate using BrightWork and Microsoft technologies.
