You probably know by now that we are a certified Microsoft Gold Partner (we like to talk about it now and again) but what exactly does that mean? So we can affix the name Microsoft onto the end of every service we offer but being certified gold by the brand is much more than bragging rights! It basically means that we can offer our customers so much more to our customers than our competitors can. In fact, as we like to shout when it comes to our managed services – we are staying ahead of the game!
What’s the point of it?
Being certified gold by Microsoft means that we are officially endorsed to provide you with the highest levels of expertise, strategic thinking, and hands-on skills. It means that when it comes to working on Microsoft products, we know better than other companies how their products operate, their strengths and weaknesses and above all else, how to get the best results from all Microsoft products.
It means that we work closely with Microsoft, maintaining excellent communicative links with the company and receiving the very best IT training. As a gold certified Microsoft partner, we encompass a broad range of expertise and vendor affiliations that can help you prioritise and effectively deliver your technology solutions.
Why should I care?
Not just any company gets to be certified gold by Microsoft you know! Microsoft Gold partners have been in the IT industry for an average of five years, bringing lots of experience to customers. Such an award proves that we have met the minimum benchmark for the number of Microsoft Certified Professionals (MCPs) who have a demonstrated level of technical expertise and the proven ability to deliver solutions featuring Microsoft products. MCPs have to pass certification exams developed by Microsoft no less! If you like talking numbers, we have four!
In order to achieve Microsoft Gold status, we have to prove that we offer expertise in IT infrastructure, networking, office automation, e-commerce, collaboration, business intelligence and other leading edge IT disciplines. We offer consulting, training, implementation, maintenance and support – the complete package! With 24/7 telephone support available to us from Microsoft, 365 days of the year, there is no Microsoft-related IT enquiry that we cannot solve for our clients, making us one of the most skilled IT systems businesses in the region.
Oh, and guess what….
You now know exactly what we are talking about when mention our Microsoft Gold status but that’s not all. We’re currently #2 nationally on the MS Pinpoint website for Gold Server partners. We’re #1 within a 10 mile radius of Coventry across all disciplines and #3 within a 25 mile radius (CLICK HERE). This simply means that we have received some of the most positive reviews from customers.
So don’t just take our word for how good our services are, take the word of one of the biggest IT companies in the world and the many people who have used us in the past. It is them who help us stay ahead of the game!
In October we announced our accreditation for becoming Coventry’s first Microsoft Partner with a Gold Server Platform accreditation, which set us apart as one of the best IT solutions providers in the region.
We’ve worked very hard to attain the accreditation, with four of our experienced technical engineers completing a rigorous examination to attain the Microsoft Certified IT Professional: Enterprise Administrator qualification.
Being a Microsoft Gold Partner means we have the technical ability and expertise to work closely with our customers and help them to streamline their operational processes so that they can focus on achieving sustainable business growth rather than on their IT systems.
