Gold Certified Partners are Always Up to Date
Microsoft’s solutions are always evolving, and so are the competency requirements associated with them. Gold Partners stay on top of these changes. it makes sense to choose a Microsoft Partner who knows how to leverage the latest Microsoft technology to help your business succeed.
Gold Partners Meet the Highest Standards
Microsoft Gold Certification indicates that a Partner meets rigorous standards set by Microsoft -- and meeting these standards is increasingly difficult. To be more specific, Microsoft requires that individuals within an organization clear various technical exams before the organization receives Gold Certification.
What does this mean for your business? For one thing, you can be sure that a Gold Certified Partner knows what they’re doing. Additionally, it’s not just one or two people at the partner organization who are familiar with the latest Microsoft tech: a Gold Partner will have a number of highly qualified staff members on hand who can help you. This means that internal turnover at an organization won’t cause problems for a particular project or engagement.
Remember there’s a difference between an organization having a large staff and maintaining a sizeable Microsoft Certified team. If the Partner you choose is a Gold Partner, they will have a “deep bench” of highly qualified team members.
