ProSites, Inc. Attains Gold Certified Partner Status in Microsoft Partner Program by Earning a Microsoft Competency in ISV/Software Solutions Competency
Leading dental website design firm attains Gold Certified Partner Status two-years in a row.
TEMECULA, CA—June 23, 2010—ProSites today announced it has attained Gold Certified Partner status in the Microsoft Partner Program with a competency in ISV/Software Solutions Competency, recognizing ProSites' expertise and impact in the technology marketplace. As a Gold Certified Partner, ProSites has demonstrated expertise with Microsoft technologies and a proven ability to meet customers' needs. Microsoft Gold Certified Partners receive a rich set of benefits, including access, training and support, giving them a competitive advantage in the channel.
“ProSites is extremely proud to have attained Gold Certified Partner status in the Microsoft Partner Network,” said Michael Elson, ProSites Vice President of Software Engineering. “We are constantly honing our IT skills year after year, and achieving this recognition is a great honor. We have a driven IT & Development team that continually looks for new ways to enhance the power and flexibility of our unique WebEngine technology, which is built on the Microsoft .NET Framework.”
“Customers are looking for partner companies that can bridge the gap between their business demands and technology capabilities,” said Allison Watson, corporate vice president of the Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “They need to trust in a company that can act as an expert adviser for their long-term strategic technology plans. Microsoft Gold Certified Partners, which have certified expertise and direct training and support from Microsoft, can build a positive customer experience with our technologies. Today, Microsoft recognizes ProSites as a new Gold Certified Partner for demonstrating its expertise in providing customer satisfaction using Microsoft products and technology.”
As one of the requirements for attaining Gold Certified Partner status, ProSites had to declare a Microsoft Competency. Microsoft Competencies are designed to help differentiate a partner's capabilities with specific Microsoft technologies to customers looking for a particular type of solution. Each Competency has a unique set of requirements and benefits, formulated to accurately represent the specific skills and services that partners bring to the technology industry. Within select Competencies, there are Specializations that focus on specific solution areas that recognize deeper expertise within that Competency. Serving as a specialized path to earning those Competencies, Specializations give direct access to the tools and resources that support that specific area of focus.
ProSites' WebEngine was Microsoft tested and approved in February. The company achieved its ISV/Software Solutions Competency in February by meeting testing requirements for its software, its operating system, and other components — and by receiving the required number of customer references. In addition, ProSites earned 173 partner points in these categories: Microsoft Competencies, Microsoft Certified Professionals, Microsoft Tested Products, Customer Reference, Customer Satisfaction Survey, and Additional Competency & Designations.
“Solutions competencies are an important way for Microsoft to better enable ISVs to meet customer needs,” said Walid Abu-Hadba, corporate vice president of the Developer and Platform Evangelism Group at Microsoft Corp. “They allow ISVs to keep and win customers through their deep knowledge of solutions-based Microsoft platform technologies. Microsoft has a long history of working closely with ISV partners to help them deliver compelling solutions and applications to our mutual customers, and the Microsoft Competencies are an important step in continuing to enhance vital relationships with ISVs worldwide.”
