SalamanderSoft at Bett 2018
It’s that time of the year again, and Bett is again upon us, starting next Wednesday. This year we decided to have our own stand instead of being on the Microsoft Partner Village. We are really excited about this and our stand number is C210, opposite Google on the main corridor leading to the Bett Arena.
Over the course of the show, the entire team will be rotating through (rota below) and we would love to see as many of you as possible over the 4 days. Our rota is below, but feel free to just drop by and say hello and chat about our products and recent developments. We even have a seating area and coffee machine if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Bett for a while.
We also have an exciting new partnership with Cloud Design Box who will also be on our stand highlighting how they can light up SharePoint in Education, building on top of the functionality of Salamander SharePoint. While we still provide the MIS integration engine, Salamander SharePoint is now installed, supported and enhanced by Cloud Design Box leveraging their excellence in the use of SharePoint with our best in the market integration engine.
As part of this partnership Darren has moved to Cloud Design Box to continue providing support for Salamander SharePoint and much more. Tony, Darren & Lloyd will be present and both they and we are happy to talk about how you move forward with SharePoint or start your journey with it.
