We are Gold!

As part of our continued commitment to develop our service and solutions, I am pleased to announce that Select Technology has been awarded the Gold Small & Midmarket Cloud Solutions Competency from Microsoft.

By achieving a Gold Competency with Microsoft, we have proven our expertise within the specific area of cloud technology, placing us among some of the top partners in the UK.

The Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions competency recognises partners who are selling and deploying Microsoft Office 365 cloud and hybrid solutions to mid-sized and small business customers. The competency differentiates a company as a proven cloud solutions provider for customers searching for qualified cloud solutions partners.

To earn a Microsoft Gold Competency is certainly a challenge and not just a ‘tick in a box exercise’.  A partner must successfully demonstrate expertise culminating in Microsoft certifications.  In reality this means investment in training and successfully passing some really quite tough technical exams (Which I am proud to say our guys passed first time!).  In addition, to ensure the highest quality of services, Microsoft also requires customer references for successful implementation and customer satisfaction.

So what does this mean to our clients?  In my view, achieving the Gold Small & Midmarket Cloud Solutions Competency demonstrates our depth and breadth of knowledge around Microsoft Cloud Services.  In particular technology solutions such as Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Skype for Business, Yammer and OneDrive.

So if you’re a Small or Midmarket business (In Microsoft’s eyes this is a business with less 500 employees) whom is interested in what the cloud can offer to improve your productivity, please do get in contact with one of our solution experts who will be more than happy to help.
