Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 23, 2009
Risetime, a leading IT services and solutions provider, is pleased to announce its new accreditation as a Microsoft Business Value Planning Services (BVPS) certified provider. Risetime is one of the first Microsoft partners in the Midwest to earn BVPS certification. Risetime adds this distinction to its Microsoft accreditation for SharePoint Deployment Planning Services (SDPS) achieved in early 2008.
Microsoft launched this new initiative (BVPS) November 18th, 2008 to help clients identify, unlock, and capture the business value of the Office System which includes SharePoint. Through structured, multi-day BVPS engagements, Risetime will work with clients to identify, design, and implement improvements to an existing business process. This initiative will provide clients with a number of benefits:
- Realize a greater return on your existing Office System technology investment
- Solve real problems that our client's face every day with a familiar technology platform
- Build a convincing business case to drive change and improve our client's business processes
"This accreditation aligns with our strategic goal to be a premier provider of business-focused services leveraging content management and process management solutions best practices," said Chris Youngren, Vice President for Risetime. "In today's economy, BVPS will help our clients save dollars quickly without having to justify new or additional funding. This accreditation also supports our commitment to continually improve our ability to bridge the gap between business and technical stakeholders."
Risetime continues its commitment and investment in the Microsoft Gold Certified Partner program. The BVPS initiative is modeled after Microsoft's SharePoint Deployment Planning Services (SDPS) program, and is a new Software Assurance (SA) benefit. Risetime earned its SDPS accreditation in early 2008. Depending on the desired workshop length, Risetime will work with clients to create a current state process analysis, future state process design, a high-level business case for the proposed solution, as well as a high-level adoption/implementation plan to implement the solution.
Microsoft is confident that BVPS will help demonstrate to existing clients that there is real value in Software Assurance which is about much more than just upgrade rights.
Since 1984, Risetime has been serving the needs of organizations looking for a strong partner to provide business and technology solutions and services. Headquartered in Chicago and a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, Risetime focuses on a wide range of IT consulting services as well as business process management, content management, and web solutions.
