1994 | Start DBS Business Solutions

DBS Business Solutions was established by Paul Dols and Jos van der Zalm in 1994 by a Management Buy Out from Digital Equipment/Philips. The company was specialised in developing standard software for Payroll, Human Resources and Accounting. DBS was one of the first companies to develop business software on the Windows platform and based on a Relational Database System.

2002 | Microsoft CRM

In order to accelerate growth and develop the growing relationship with Microsoft, DBS Business Solutions started to develop software and services around the Microsoft CRM platform. DBS was one of the first companies to start working with Microsoft CRM and has been involved with the product since version 1.0.

2005 | Microsoft Project Server and SharePoint

The Microsoft CRM activities were extremely succesful and DBS Business Solutions made a strategic decision to expand the partnership with Microsoft. A number of experienced consultants were recruited to set up teams for SharePoint and Project Server. This also represented the starting point for development activities based on the Microsoft products. The first add-on product developed by DBS Business Solutions  was a number of SharePoint Apps which offered Intranet functionality on the SharePoint platform.
