Silverside wants to inspire people and motivate them to reach their full potential. If employees have passion for their work and enjoy the collaborative process, productivity will naturally follow. BPA’s goal: increase end user adoption of collaboration platforms with our 3G methodology for SharePoint and IBM Connections.

By working together, BPA and Silverside bring their customers better collaborative tools—and higher productivity as a result.
