Richardson, TX (PRWEB) June 18, 2014
tekVizion™, a comprehensive services provider for Lync, today announced it has attained a Gold Communications 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 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/or sales assessments.
This competency shows the company’s continued dedication to providing qualified Microsoft Lync solutions to Microsoft customers worldwide. tekVizion’s spotLight Services for Lync are designed specifically for the evolving enterprise environments and provides users with:
- Fully qualified Lync solutions including demonstrable interoperability with third-party hardware and software components
- Network readiness assessments including recommended modifications, performance baseline, and continued KPI audits culminating in an optimal Quality of Experience
- 24/7/365 proactive monitoring and support of the entire multi-vendor Lync installation
“We are excited to achieve the Microsoft Gold Communications Competency. We have been testing and qualifying product vendors and Service Providers on Microsoft Lync dating back to the OCS/LCS platforms,” said Chakra Devalla, CEO. “With this accomplishment, we can extend our knowledge and services to our partner's enterprise community at large and stand behind our testing.”
“By achieving a gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology,” said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “These partners have a deep expertise that puts them in the top 1 percent of our partner ecosystem, and their proficiency will help customers drive innovative solutions on the latest Microsoft technology.”
Attaining the Microsoft Communications competency demonstrates partner expertise in videoconferencing, voice over Internet protocol and instant messaging. Equipped with exclusive training, the latest software and support on Microsoft Lync solutions, partners help customers reduce cost of travel, real estate and facilities maintenance while gaining operational efficiencies.
The Microsoft Partner Network helps partners strengthen their capabilities to showcase leadership in the marketplace on the latest technology, to better serve customers and, with 640,000 Microsoft partners in their ecosystem, to easily connect with one of the most active, diverse networks in the world.
