syskoplan AG has successfully renewed its partnership with Microsoft, which has certified the company as a partner in eight categories. syskoplan received Gold Partner status for the competence fields of business intelligence, portal and collaboration, server platform as well as software development. Silver Partner status was granted for the fields of content management, CRM, data platform and web development. The syskoplan employees’ high level of technical knowledge, ability to solve problems and the reliable quality of services demonstrated by syskoplan in many successful customer projects were decisive for the renewal of the partnership.
Highest status in the Microsoft partner network
For Microsoft, transparency, quality and the extent of consultation are the focus of customer support. To raise the standards of service for customers and partners, the company has started a new quality offensive and realigned the Microsoft partner network. In comparison to the “old” Gold status, this newly designed partner model places newer and higher service requirements on the Microsoft partners in many different areas of competency. With four partner levels and a total of 29 competencies, the new model is considerably more oriented to the typical solution scenarios required by the market. The Silver and Gold partnerships are the two highest levels in the Microsoft partner network. Successful certification in each competency requires the corresponding level of expertise as well as in-depth certifications for products, methodology and relevant customer references.
syskoplan AG qualified for Gold Partner status in four categories: Business intelligence, server platform, portals and collaboration, and software development. In addition, Microsoft also awarded syskoplan Silver Partner status in the categories of content management, CRM, data platform and web development.
Tested expertise and certifications for products and methodology
The syskoplan employees showed a lot of dedication and were trained and checked with extremely detailed tests. In addition, the syskoplan employees and the company had to demonstrate their experience with customer references and surveys.
Exclusive services for Gold and Silver Partners
Microsoft Gold and Silver Partners can access exclusive and extensive services from Microsoft, such as sales and marketing support, and receive support for customer and business relationships.
“In spite of the steep rise in requirements based on continuous training and development of our employees, we were able to achieve certification as a Microsoft Gold Partner within a short period of time. Partner status in a total of eight business fields – four of them gold – confirms our customer-focused approach for which we always use the newest Microsoft technologies as well as the proven competency of our employees and the high capability for innovation by our Microsoft unit,” commented Wolfgang Klein and Josef Stegschuster regarding the new Gold certification.
