6th Street Consulting today announced it has attained a Gold Competency in Portals & Collaboration, demonstrating a “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment and distinguishing itself within the top 1 percent of Microsoft’s partner ecosystem.
To earn a Microsoft Gold Competency, partners must successfully complete exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to prove their level of technology expertise, and then designate these certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. They also must submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects (along with implementing a yearly customer satisfaction study), meet a revenue commitment (for most Gold Competencies), and pass technology and marketing assessments.
“This Gold Competency in Portals & Collaboration showcases our expertise in and commitment to today’s technology market and demonstrates our deep knowledge of Microsoft’s SharePoint products,” said Ro Kolakowski, founder of 6th Street Consulting, “We plan to accelerate our customers’ success by serving as technology advisors for their business demands.”
