“We are very enthusiastic about the partnership with MessageOps. They have great people, who have produced great products and utilities, and have a very loyal client base. We are all excited about not just what MessageOps previously brought to market, but rather what our combined business will bring to the market in the future,” said Champion’s Chief Executive Officer, Chris Pyle. “The BETA Release of 365 Command has seen HUGE success and we believe will be the Defacto Standard Cloud Management platform for Microsoft Office 365 users and Solution Providers.
