17/04/2012 Micromail demonstrates best-in-class capability and market leadership through demonstrated technology success and customer commitment.
For the sixth consecutive year, Micromail has attained Microsoft Gold Competencies in Volume Licensing and Software Asset Management. This achievement places the company within the top 1 percent of Microsoft’s world-wide Partner Network, and demonstrates a “best-in-class” ability & commitment to meeting Microsoft customers’ needs in today’s dynamic business environment.
To earn a Microsoft gold competency, a company’s staff needs to successfully complete Microsoft Certified Professional exams to prove their level of technology expertise. The certified professionals are then designated uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. Businesses must also submit customer references as evidence of successful projects, and implement a yearly customer satisfaction survey. They must also meet a revenue commitment (for most gold competencies), and pass technology and/or sales assessments. Microsoft technology competencies identify a partner’s capabilities, allowing customers to find qualified solution providers with expertise in specific areas.
“By achieving a portfolio of competencies, partners demonstrate deep expertise and consistent capability on the latest Microsoft technology,” said Jon Roskill, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “These partners show true commitment to meeting customer technology needs today and into the future.”
“These specific licensing competencies, which have been increasingly challenging to achieve, enhance our ability to provide top class consulting services directly to customers, or indirectly through solution & deployment partners whose skills complement ours,” said Micromail Technical Sales Director Willy Kelly.
