âWe are extremely pleased to have attained Gold Certified Partner status in the Microsoft Partner Program. This allows us to clearly promote our expertise and relationship with Microsoft to our customers,â said Doug Deitel, Morphis president & CEO, âThe benefits provided through our Gold Certified Partner status will allow us to continue to enhance the offerings that we provide for customers.â
âCustomers are looking for partner companies that can bridge the gap between their business demands and technology capabilities,â said Allison Watson, vice president of the Worldwide Partner Sales and Marketing Group at Microsoft Corp. âThey need to trust in a company that can act as an expert adviser for their long-term strategic technology plans. Microsoft Gold Certified Partners, which have certified expertise and direct training and support from Microsoft, can build a positive customer experience with our technologies. Today, Microsoft recognizes Morphis as a new Gold Certified Partner for demonstrating its expertise providing customer satisfaction using Microsoft products and technology.â
As one of the requirements for attaining Gold Certified Partner status, Morphis had to declare a Microsoft Competency. Microsoft Competencies are designed to help differentiate a partnerâs capabilities with specific Microsoft technologies to customers looking for a particular type of solution. Each competency has a unique set of requirements and benefits, formulated to accurately represent the specific skills and services that partners bring to the technology industry.
The ISV/Software Solutions Competency recognizes the skill and focus partners bring to a particular solution set. Microsoft Gold Certified Partners that have obtained this competency have a successful record of developing and marketing packed software based on Microsoft technologies.
âSolutions competencies are an important way for Microsoft to better enable ISVs to meet customer needs,â said Sanjay Parthasarathy, corporate vice president of the Developer & Platform Evangelism Group at Microsoft. âThey allow ISVs to keep and win customers through their deep knowledge of solutions-based Microsoft platform technologies. Microsoft has a long history of working closely with ISV partners to help them deliver compelling solutions and applications to our mutual customers, and the Microsoft Competencies are an important step in continuing to enhance vital relationships with ISVs worldwide.â
