The Birth of BeMo

The BeMo team has been active in using enterprise project management tools behind the scenes for over 18 years. In fact, Bruno Lecoq and Joel Lachance, the brains behind BeMo, are the same brains that worked at Microsoft in the Entertainment and Devices and Human Resources divisions to roll out Microsoft Project 2003, 2007, and 2010 – the industry leading project management software relied upon daily by over 20 million users.

BeMo opened its doors in July 2010 with the launch of Microsoft Project 2010 promising a completely new, web-based evolution of hosted EPM technologies. At launch, BeMo became the first company in the world to offer Project Server 2010 provisioned in the cloud in less than 30 min. Since then, the company has evolved as a premier Software as a Service (SaaS) provider specializing in Hosted Project Portfolio Management (PPM) and Hosted Unified Communication and Collaboration (UCC) solutions built on Microsoft SharePoint, Project Server, Office 365, Exchange, and Lync Server with Enterprise Voice.
