UnifiedCommunications.com, a Lync-focused Microsoft value-added distributor (VAD), today announced that it has attained a Microsoft 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.

They also must pass other qualifying assessments.
