ACTS, a technology solutions provider with a long-standing strategic relationship with Microsoft, today announced it has attained a Gold Digital Advertising competency, demonstrating a “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment and distinguishing itself within the top one 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. Partners also submit customer references that demonstrate highly successful projects that exceed their revenue commitment and pass technology and sales assessments for most gold competencies.
As a leading technology solutions firm and Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, ACTS began by serving businesses in the Northeast Florida region and beyond and has grown to serve Fortune 500 companies on a national and global level. The Microsoft Digital Advertising Competency enables ACTS to showcase proficiency and expertise by providing solutions such as SharePoint 2013. By attaining the Microsoft Gold Digital competency ACTS has the ability to offer customers high-quality technology-based marketing solutions. In addition, ACTS can provide customers access to effective, highly functional and easy to use marketing tools. Upon completion, ACTS has access to products and key technologies such as Search Engine Optimization (SEO) – Bing Organic Results, display advertising at Microsoft, and search engine marketing with Bing ads.
