Boldon James has partnered with Microsoft for 16 years

Microsoft Partnership

Boldon James have been partnering with Microsoft for over 15 years. Original formalised in 1996 with Gold Independent Software Vendor (ISV) status, our relationship has gone from strength to strength, and in 2006 Microsoft elevated Boldon James to be their Global Go-To-Market Partner for 'Messaging in Defence and Public Safety'. This highest level of Partner status, combined with our long standing relationship, provides Boldon James with a unique level of access to new Microsoft products, development and commercial support which is not available to other independent software vendors in the data classification and messaging sector. Microsoft and Boldon James continue to align product and sales strategies to deliver unique solutions that extend the Microsoft suite of products, including Office, Outlook, Sharepoint and Exchange.

"As a company that works closely with partners to meet the needs of customers around the world, we’ve been working to identify a number of leading independent solution vendors with expertise in these markets & a proven record of delivering Microsoft-based solutions. Boldon James, with its offerings for messaging, collaboration & chat, was a logical choice."

Tim Bloechl, Executive Director for Worldwide Public Safety and National Security, Microsoft
