We are extremely pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with Oaka Studio, to help more businesses to establish new, or grow existing, Microsoft Dynamics 365 practices by using our GYDE365 platform.

Oaka Studio, a boutique consulting business, was founded by Lucy Bourne, who previously worked as a Senior Partner Development Manager at Microsoft and played a pivotal role in helping partners achieve success, and Lee Baker, who has been instrumental in building-up several successful Microsoft practices. Together, they have over 20 years of combined experience in the Microsoft Business Applications space, which gives them both a deep understanding of the unique challenges and opportunities that partners face. They specialize in providing partners with support in growing their market presence, establishing valuable partnerships, building a strong technology foundation, and developing a passionate team to foster sustainable growth. Ultimately, they equip partners with the knowledge and skills needed to build or grow a successful Business Applications practice or ISV solution offering.

Commenting on the recent partnership with Seer 365, Lucy Bourne, Director of Oaka said, “We’ve watched with enthusiasm over the last few years as the Seer 365 business has grown and their GYDE365 platform is adopted by more and more partners across the globe, as well as being used by Microsoft sales teams themselves. Both our organisations have a common goal; to help Microsoft Dynamics 365 partners quickly grow, whilst also building profitable and efficient businesses. With our focus on providing partners with the necessary strategies to take their business to the next level, we will be working with a few best-of-breed technology partners that complement what we are doing; GYDE365 hits that spot perfectly. We already know of several partners that the GYDE365 suite of applications will really benefit and as part of our strategic toolkit, will have no hesitation in recommending them to organisations that we are currently working with, as well as those we will work with in the future.”

Sam Dharmasiri, CEO of Seer 365 commented, “I’ve known and been impressed with Lucy’s work, particularly in her roles at Microsoft. Combined with Lee’s business expertise in growing Microsoft Business Applications practices and successfully delivering numerous Dynamics projects, they make a formidable team. They will be welcome advisors to any partner looking to establish or grow their Dynamics 365 or ISV practice and with our companies working together, we can elevate the performance of many partners”
