Gold Systems Attains Gold Certified Partner Status in Microsoft Partner Program
Gold Systems attained Gold Certified status in the Microsoft Partner Program with a competency in Networking Infrastructure Solutions. Microsoft Gold Certified Partners receive a set of benefits, including access, training and support, giving them a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
Gold Systems' automated solutions offer customers the ability to perform transactions such as resetting passwords, checking account status or buying a product by speaking into a telephone.
As one of the requirements for attaining Gold Certified Status, Gold Systems had to declare a Microsoft Competency. Microsoft Competencies are designed to help differentiate a partner's capabilities with specific Microsoft technologies to customers looking for a particular type of solution. Each competency has a set of requirements and benefits, formulated to represent the specific skills and services that partners bring to the technology industry.
Microsoft Gold Certified Partners enrolled in the Networking Infrastructure Solutions Competency have proved their competency in implementing technology solutions based on either the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 or Windows® 2000 Server operating system, with a particular focus on Microsoft Small Business Server 2000 and Windows Small Business Server 2003. These implementations may include crafting solutions that connect Windows-based servers, PC locations and the Internet; installing a server farm; or building a small-business Windows Server stand-alone solution that includes file and print capabilities.
The Microsoft Partner Program was launched in December 2003 and represents Microsoft's ongoing commitment to the success of partners worldwide. The program offers an integrated partnering framework.
