TACOMA, WA (PRWEB) September 10, 2009
IdentityMine, an expert user experience company, announces that it has been named a Microsoft® Surface® Strategic Partner. The top partner level offered in the new Microsoft Surface Partner program, a Microsoft Surface Strategic Partner enjoys the benefit of a high touch relationship with the product team in Redmond.
IdentityMine began developing on the Microsoft Surface platform prior to the public demonstration of the technology by Bill Gates during the CES 2008 Keynote held in Las Vegas, NV. A Gold Certified Partner, IdentityMine was contracted to create a pair of engaging experiences to serve as the cornerstone for demonstrating the capabilities of the new touch platform. The Snowboard Retail experience was used during the keynote to show product customization and facilitate the retail process by saving the configuration for later ordering or sharing via Windows Live. The second experience, Wine Bar, was built to show an augmented ordering and tasting experience geared toward the food and beverage crowd.
"IdentityMine was extremely excited about being one of the first Microsoft partners to work with the new Microsoft Surface platform when it debuted," said Chad Brown, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing at IdentityMine. "Microsoft Surface continues to be a major asset in our NUI (Natural User Interface) portfolio as we form the future of user experience."
Following their early success in the platform, IdentityMine also conducted the installation of Microsoft Surface at Hotel 1000 in downtown Seattle in October 2008. By customizing the Microsoft Surface experience with the Hotel 1000 brand, IdentityMine was able to reinforce the message for Hotel 1000 that they are indeed a leader in hospitality technology.
"Microsoft Surface greatly values the mutually productive relationships we've developed with our partners through the Microsoft Surface Partner Program.," said Matt Champagne, Director of Marketing for Microsoft Surface. "IdentityMine delivers unique software experiences for Microsoft Surface users, and we are looking forward to continue working with them as a Strategic Partner in the future."

Each Microsoft Surface Partner, also a registered Microsoft Partner, has demonstrated expertise with the Microsoft Surface platform and has access to technical training and certification, direct technical updates and releases, and a variety of technical support options on Microsoft Surface products and tools.
