Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) November 30, 2010
Abel Solutions, Atlanta’s leading Microsoft SharePoint solution provider, announced today that they have attained the Microsoft Gold Portals and Collaboration competency in the new Microsoft Partner Network (MPN). Abel Solutions is one of the first Microsoft partners in Georgia to attain Gold Competency in the newly revamped program.
The new Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) accreditations came into effect on November 1, 2010. The criteria for the new program is much more stringent and promises to better represent organizations who have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment within a specific business solution area.
Where previously the Gold Partner status reflected an overall capability, the new approach enables Microsoft partners to more clearly differentiate their business capabilities and areas of specialization. Partners can now earn Gold or Silver competency accreditation in 29 specific areas of expertise. Partners who attain the new certification will be able to display the new partner logo.
“Microsoft’s partners are the secret behind our success,” said Jon Roskill, corporate vice president of the Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft. “We created the Microsoft Partner Network to help them achieve their business needs and drive deeper customer satisfaction.”
Although Microsoft partners have up to 12 months to meet the new criteria, Abel Solutions has met their objective in achieving the Gold competency just weeks after the program was launched.
“The new MPN program aims to differentiate more accomplished Microsoft partners and make it easier for customers to align with a partner that truly understands their area of expertise,” said Kevin Abel, president of Abel Solutions. “Early recognition under the more stringent accreditation procedures is a testament to our position as a leading Microsoft SharePoint solution provider and commitment as a Microsoft partner.”
