“This Microsoft Gold Application Development competency showcases our expertise in and commitment to today’s technology market, as well as demonstrates our deep knowledge of Microsoft and its products.”
Exclaimer Limited, the global leader in managed email signature software, today announced it has attained a Gold Application Development competency demonstrating a “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment and distinguishing itself within the top 1 percent of Microsoft’s partner ecosystem.
To earn a Microsoft gold competency, partners must successfully complete exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to prove their level of technology expertise, and then designate these certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. They also must submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects (along with implementing a yearly customer satisfaction study), meet a revenue commitment (for most gold competencies), and pass technology and/or sales assessments.
Since 2007, Exclaimer has consistently met all requirements to qualify as a trusted Microsoft Gold Partner that provides high-quality software solutions. Every member of its Technical Support team is either a Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) or is training to become one. The rigorous and comprehensive courses they take have trains them to implement Microsoft Exchange and Windows Server products into practical business environments where Exclaimer software would be used.
“This Microsoft Gold Application Development competency showcases our expertise in and commitment to today’s technology market, as well as demonstrates our deep knowledge of Microsoft and its products,” said Andrew Millington, Chief Executive at Exclaimer “We plan to accelerate our customers’ success by serving as technology advisors for their business demands.” “By achieving a gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology,” said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “These partners have a deep expertise that puts them in the top 1 percent of our partner ecosystem, and their proficiency will help customers drive innovative solutions on the latest Microsoft technology.”
Earning the Application Development competency helps partners differentiate themselves as a trusted expert to their customers through development and deployment of commercial or custom applications built using core Microsoft technologies like Windows Server and Windows 8 operating systems, the Windows Azure platform, Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 development system, Microsoft BizTalk Server and emerging cloud-based and web business models. By gaining access to a comprehensive set of benefits through the Application Development competency, partners can acquire new customers and help them be more productive and profitable through deployment of business applications, advanced web portals or rich client user interfaces that run on premises or in the cloud.
The Microsoft Partner Network helps partners strengthen their capabilities to showcase leadership in the marketplace on the latest technology, to better serve customers and to easily connect with one of the most active, diverse networks in the world.
