ettain group, Inc. achieves Microsoft's Gold Certification Status
CHARLOTTE, N.C., Jan.1, 2012 – ettain group, Inc. today announced its successful achievement of Microsoft Gold Portals and Collaboration Competency in January of 2012.
In 2010 Microsoft did away with its long-standing “Certified” or “Gold Certified” partner designations, replacing them with the new “Gold” and “Silver” competencies which identify partners’ core capabilities and expertise in specific Microsoft business solution areas.
The criteria to qualify for the new competencies is much more comprehensive, requiring partners to pass technical exams and business assessments based upon the latest Microsoft product versions, acquire certifications, gather customer references per competency and, for Gold Competencies, maintain a customer satisfaction index.
There are more than 400,000 Microsoft partners worldwide that are eligible to attain these new competencies. Of these, fewer than 7% have achieved a Gold Competency.
"Achieving the Microsoft Gold Portals and Collaboration Competency is an important milestone for our Technology Consulting Group. It reinforces our company’s capabilities and the expertise that we provide our clients. Microsoft has been and will continue to be one of our strategic partners, a long-lasting relationship that positions us as a leading software solutions provider in our markets," said Dan Royle, Vice President of Operations for ettain group.
