Marlborough, MA (PRWEB) August 5, 2008
Altico Advisors is proud to announce that it has been awarded the status of Microsoft Gold Certified Partner with a special competency in Microsoft Business Solutions. Gold Certified Partners represent the highest level of competence and expertise with Microsoft technologies, and have the closest working relationship with Microsoft.
As one of the requirements for attaining Gold Certified Partner status, Altico Advisors had to declare a Microsoft Competency. Microsoft Competencies are designed to help differentiate a partner's capabilities with specific Microsoft technologies - in this case, Microsoft Dynamics GP and CRM.
The Microsoft Business Solutions Competency is designed for partners with proven expertise in the design and implementation of enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) systems using Microsoft's financial, CRM and supply chain management solutions. Microsoft Gold Certified Partners have a proven track record helping organizations develop and build integrated Microsoft ERP and CRM solutions.
"Customers are looking for partners who 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 can build a positive customer experience with our technologies. Today, Microsoft recognizes Altico Advisors as a new Gold Certified Partner for demonstrating its expertise in providing customer satisfaction using Microsoft products and technology."
The management team at Altico Advisors - CEO Rich Maloney, President Mike Kean, and Vice President Jim Hickey - joined in unison to say, "This is an achievement worth celebrating. We want to extend our gratitude to all of the dedicated Altico team members who made this distinction possible."
