Comms-care Attains Gold

award

Comms-care has announced it has attained a Gold Cloud Productivity competency, demonstrating “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs.

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) and pass technology and/or sales assessments.

Simon Day, Professional Services Director at Comms-care commented on the achievement: “To add the Microsoft Gold Cloud Productivity competency to our three existing Microsoft Gold competencies, showcases our expertise in and commitment to today’s technology market and demonstrates our deep knowledge of Microsoft and its products. Comms-care is one of 25 Microsoft partners in the UK and the only channel-only IT support provider in the UK to attain the Microsoft Gold Cloud Productivity competency.”

Jamie Bryant, Cloud Strategy Specialist at Comms-care said: “Comms-care’s commitment to the Microsoft Cloud First, Mobile First strategy is furthermore proven by the achievement of Gold status in Cloud Productivity. We have a team of some of the best consultants in the country in this space and this recognition by Microsoft has bolstered our channel partner offering.”

With 60 percent of Fortune 500 companies purchasing Microsoft Office 365 in the past year, the Microsoft Gold Cloud Productivity competency can help Comms-care’s channel partners take advantage of the growing demand among end-user customers for cloud and hybrid solutions.

“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.”
