NEW YORK, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- the worlds premiere staffing engine, announced today its aim to recruit Microsoft Certified talent as part of their ongoing Gig Economy-inspired Solvate500 campaign to recruit 500 of the best independent professionals in the country.

"Solvate can connect SMB's to a Salesforce Certified Developer or a Quickbooks ProAdvisor to work on demand, one hour or project at a time."

"We think one of those resources is talent and with on demand access to world class talent, small businesses can operate like world class institutions," says Solvate CEO Mike Paolucci.
