Under the new Partner Network program, Microsoft has introduced both Silver and Gold levels to each of 29 or so different competency areas. Hosting is one of the competency specialties and we’ve re-earned the Gold level in this competency.
Microsoft has raised the bar significantly to attain the new Gold level status. To earn a Microsoft Gold Competency, organizations must have the right number of Microsoft Certified Professionals having passed different certification exams related to the competency, submit customer references and demonstrate their commitment to customer satisfaction by participating in an annual survey.
Every year we invest in achieving the Gold level status because we believe that it shows our commitment to stay on top of Microsoft-related technologies, helps us maintain a strong relationship with Microsoft, and serves as a big differentiator.
You may have noticed that we have been switching out the old Microsoft Gold Partner logo on our site and collateral to use the new Microsoft Partner logo above.
If you want to check our status or anyone elses for that matter, you can do so at the Microsoft PinPoint site.
