“To bring to Portugal an event so important such as eXtreme365 is a big step for Bizdirect,” says Rita Cordovil, Bizdirect CMO. “It’s an event that has an international presence and position and besides that, has the presence of world-renowned speakers in the CRM market – most notably from Microsoft. This is an event that we have been supporting for several years and this initiative consolidates our investment strategy of our Competence Center with the purpose of being close to the international community of Microsoft CRM partners. eXtreme 365 is one of those key moments for our expansion strategy as a Competence Center of excellence in Microsoft solutions.”
Bizdirect will also host a session designed for partners, which will take place on 14th of March and will last 30 minutes, dedicated to the theme “Working side-by-side in a Nearshore model”.

Currently the Bizdirect Competence Center develops and exports Microsoft platform software from Portugal to Europe and the Middle East, and already has more than 25 customers spread over 15 countries including United Kingdom, Ireland, Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Finland, Switzerland, Austria, France, Hungary, and others.
“This year it was quite easy to choose the city to host eXtreme365.” says Christy Spokely, eXtreme365 CEO. “Lisbon was chosen for its charismatic characteristics, from good weather to food and the people, but also for the innovation and entrepreneurship that the city breathes. It was one of the most tourist-visited cities last year and several times was awarded by travelling magazines and websites. Besides that, we’ve had the privilege of working with Bizdirect as sponsor and partner, and obviously that helped us in our final decision. We needed a stellar name in the CRM market in Europe, and here in Portugal Bizdirect is a target reference. We are so grateful for their participation.”
Two eXtreme365 events take place annually per year, one in Europe and one in the United States.
