AMPLEXOR becomes Microsoft Gold Partner
31 March 2017
AMPLEXOR has attained Gold Competency rating in Microsoft's Cloud Productivity competency programme, and consequently has become a Microsoft Gold Partner. We are now a member of a select club of companies with this status, demonstrating that, in addition to having the right technology, we have the know-how, vision and strategy required to be able to offer Microsoft cloud services to our customers.
Microsoft's award of its Gold Competency certification in Cloud Productivity shows we have the highest possible level of competency in Microsoft cloud services, such as Office 365. “This is a major step for us, and we consider it a great honour,” said Eric Pieters, Vice President Professional Services at AMPLEXOR. “It proves that we have the technical capabilities, the right people, the right vision and the right strategy to help our customers by providing Microsoft cloud services. Moreover, it means that we can also assist companies with managing change when migrating to the cloud.”
Companies have to meet a number of strict requirements in order to attain Gold Competency rating in Microsoft's Cloud Productivity programme. These include the number of Microsoft-certified employees allocated to cloud services; the scale of Office 365 projects, which usually means having customers in the top segment; the annual number of Office 365 entitlements in the cloud and the number of active users. AMPLEXOR has satisfied all these requirements to obtain Gold Partner status and therefore expects that its Gold Competency rating will open new doors in future.
“This competency shows that we are qualified to serve the market at the highest level. We have the necessary know-how to be able to make a difference and hold our own against larger players. And thanks to our Gold Competency rating in the Cloud Productivity programme, Microsoft itself will personally recommend our company.”
Gold Competency certification is awarded for a period of one year. Eric Pieters ensures “we will continue to work hard and innovate in order to maintain our certification status. We have attained the highest level in the Benelux, and staying at the top will mean hard work. Maintaining our competency is an ongoing process, but we are definitely ready for the challenge.”
