Gimmal is a Charter Member of Microsoft’s New Content Services Partner Program

The 2018 Microsoft Inspire conference was truly one for the books. As organizations and Microsoft partners from around the world converged in Las Vegas bringing together industry experts and like-minded people fueled by cloud, IoT, and AI, attendance soared well over 20,000.

One of the more exciting moments during this year’s Inspire was Microsoft’s announcement of their new Content Services Partner Program. This new partner program consists of Microsoft partners that provide end-to-end software and services that connect entire workplaces and enable intelligent content management. Partners include not only independent software vendors (ISVs), but also system integrators (SIs) as it pertains to SharePoint and Office 365 technologies.

Gimmal has been recognized as an instrumental Microsoft ISV partner when it comes to implementing advanced records management, content governance, and SAP archiving within SharePoint and Office 365. Gimmal also provides expert consulting and services for implementing, managing, and migrating your SharePoint and Office 365 environments. Because of our long-standing partnership with Microsoft and combined decades of technical expertise, Gimmal is part of a select group of inaugural partners that have been officially inducted into the Content Services Partner Program.

This program will allow third-party vendors like Gimmal to fill Microsoft’s technological gaps in information management, records management, content governance, and more. By utilizing third-party expertise and innovation to enhance Microsoft’s already proven ECM platform, companies are realizing better document-centric processes, compliance, and collaboration built within their current SharePoint and Office 365 environments.

We’re thrilled to be a part of this program, both for the recognition of our contribution to the Microsoft ecosystem and because we’re excited to reach more Microsoft customers and help them on their journey to truly intelligent records management. Check out this Microsoft & Gimmal case study to see how we worked with the City of Bellevue to simplify records management with SharePoint.
