Prior to AssistMyTeam, Bahrur served as the CTO at kalmstrom Business Solutions where he headed the development, testing and technical support teams. He was instrumental in the development of the company’s product strategies, staffs training, brand building and customer support and retention programs. Early on, from extensive consulting experience, Bahrur realized the inherent complexities and limitation faced by many organizations and teams in trying to integrate and streamline their in housed business workflows with Microsoft Office applications and SharePoint. Lack of the necessary technical and programming skills to design and develop such solutions, devoid most organizations from capitalizing and using the full strength and power of Microsoft Office and SharePoint technologies. While other organizations hire IT workforces or outsource it to deal with such implementation. As such, the cost to the organizations for such integrated solutions often goes high, even offsetting the benefit of using such systems, at the first place.
Because of this lack of simple, affordable and turnkey business applications on Microsoft Office, Exchange and SharePoint platforms, Bahrur took this as a challenge and opportunity and founded AssistMyTeam to offer a range of enterprise level groupware and productivity applications with out-of-the-box, ‘plug and play’ integration in the following areas:
