SecureTRANSIT Inc., announced today that it has achieved the status of Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, reaching the highest level in two separate competencies as a result of its success in working with Microsoft and delivering Microsoft-compatible solutions to airline customers: ISV/Software Solutions and Microsoft Business Solutions.
"Customers are looking for partner companies that can bridge the gap between their business demands and technology capabilities. They need to trust in someone 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," said Allison Watson, vice president of the Worldwide Partner Sales and Marketing Group at Microsoft Corp.
In recent months, SecureTRANSIT has successfully leveraged Microsoft technologies on several initiatives, announcing products that support and extend the latest Microsoft technology, including APIScontrol™ and APISadvisor™, based Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0., and Microsoft SQL Server 2005.
"This achievement is a testament to the close relationship we have developed with Microsoft over the last several years," said Steve Macdonald, SecureTRANSIT CTO. "Reaching Microsoft Gold Partner status underscores our commitment to providing highly reliable and secure solutions to our aviation industry customers who must comply with US Department of Homeland Security safety and security regulations, as well as with similar government regulations globally."
The Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Program benefits Microsoft and its partners and customers by allowing companies to easily identify the solution providers that are best suited for their needs. Thanks to its new status, SecureTRANSIT now receives marketing resources, extensive technical support and training from Microsoft, as well as greater access to Microsoft products and technologies.
