SharePoint Solutions, an industry-leading provider of training, consulting and software for the Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies platform, today announced it has attained Gold Certified Partner status in the Microsoft Partner Program with competencies in ISV/Software Solutions and Portals & Enterprise Content Management for Information Workers.
The Microsoft Gold Certified Partner status recognizes SharePoint Solutions' expertise and impact in the technology marketplace. As a Gold Certified Partner, SharePoint Solutions has demonstrated expertise with Microsoft technologies and proven ability to meet customers' needs.
"Customers are looking for partner companies that can bridge the gap between their business demands and technology capabilities," said Allison Watson, vice president of the Worldwide Partner Sales and Marketing Group at Microsoft Corp.
