The company developed a platform through which companies can access a global pool of consultants. The end-to-end solution enables business customers and consultants to quickly hiring, collaborate, track project and manage payment all on the platform. 

The company has now joined the Microsoft for Startups Program and is supported by the Swiss subsidiary. Through the program, startups benefit from technical support, access to the know-how and experience of Microsoft’s global partner organizations and Microsoft's technology and tools to accelerate the development of their solutions. 

Commenting on the achievement, André Schwaninger, CEO Advisorybay said, "We benefit from getting access to the powerful Azure Services and Office 356 collaboration suite and to Microsoft’s partner and customer ecosystem. These are important success factors for the growth of our company. We look forward to continuing our collaboration."

Andrew Reid, Partner Development Lead Microsoft Switzerland said, "We believe in the potential of advisorybay and are pleased that they have decided to become part of our program. We are excited to further develop the business model together and position it in the market."
