London, UK – 4 November 2002 A new British contender in the rapidly evolving field of mobile enterprise applications development was announced today. The introduction of Blueprint, which provides web services and mobile enterprise applications for companies of all sizes, is timed to coincide with today’s confirmation that the company has been awarded Microsoft’s prestigious Gold Partner status for Collaborative Solutions – one of only a dozen such companies in the UK.

Blueprint is headed by entrepreneur Richard Bron, who founded the company in 1997. Prior to that, he was involved in the music and film business, first as a senior record company executive and then as an entrepreneur involved in various aspects of the entertainments industry.

Blueprint’s senior management team includes Bob Young, Ray Livesey, Terry Bishop, Nissanka Fernando and Amanda Lord, who have over 75 years in IT consultancy, systems and web development between them.

Originally a developer of client-server database systems, Blueprint has expanded its business to include consultancy and development for a wide range of platforms and applications, including in particular Microsoft .NET, XML Web Services and Pocket PC.

In the process the company has gained particular experience in building complex rule-based systems and workflow applications. Blueprint can integrate new applications with existing company systems of all kinds, using appropriate middleware. Today Blueprint’s clients increasingly benefit from applications whose functionality can be exploited by a wide range of enterprise systems using Web Services.

‘We provide our customers with complete end-to-end consultancy, development and support services for projects that enable them to expand the capabilities of their existing core applications,’ said Richard Bron, CEO of Blueprint. ‘A key part of our strategy is to work as closely as possible with the leading names in the industry. We are particularly pleased that Microsoft has awarded us Gold Partner status confirming Blueprint among the UK’s elite systems developers.’

Blueprint is able to plan, install and extend the functionality of .NET Enterprise Server Products such as SharePoint Portal Server, Content Management Server and Mobile Information Server for organisations of all sizes. Blueprint also develops its own range of products for servers and mobile devices.

Blueprint combines powerful development platforms such as the Microsoft .NET Framework and Visual Studio .NET with a disciplined approach to software development using techniques and custom tools derived from the Rational Unified Process.
