Microsoft has strict policy of assessing partners, with a specific set of criteria that must be achieved before certifications are awarded. They demand the highest standards of service and performance from their partners to ensure Microsoft maintains its reputation as the leader in IT solutions and software.
During the rigorous accreditation process, M247 had to:
- Successfully complete detailed technical exams and assessments for M247 engineers
- Undergo a licensing overview assessment
- Conduct a separate sales and marketing competency assessment
M247 Head of Cloud Practice, Ashley Ward, said the gold certification demonstrated the company’s commitment to delivering the best possible products and services with the highest levels of customer service. ‘With this achievement we are showcasing our technical engineers’ capabilities and expertise whilst ensuring our customers receive best-in-class support and service on their Microsoft product portfolios.’
As a Microsoft gold partner, M247 will now benefit from additional training, tools and utilities, allowing us to broaden our service offering. And to ensure an ongoing, continued high level of technical skill and customer service, Microsoft undertakes a review of all gold partner accreditations annually.
