The Microsoft Partner Network – Drumbeat:
The Microsoft Partner Network is a customer solution engine that brings together business and technology solutions for businesses and consumers around the globe. Partners use the network to leverage industry-leading tools, training, networking, and support to help them compete and win more business.
MPN was finding it increasingly difficult to maintain clear and useful lines of communication between itself and its partners. Email was proving not to work and various disparate sources of information made clear and cohesive communication difficult.
Our team worked with Microsoft to develop Drumbeat, a app for iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Windows 8 that accumulates different sources of information and channel them directly to the Microsoft partners phone or tablet. The app also supported push notifications to allow specific messages to be sent directly to partners to ensure timely delivery of information.
