Implico brings home two golds

15 December 2011

Now Microsoft Gold Partner in two categories

Implico has attained Gold Partner status as a Microsoft Midmarket Solution Provider. The consulting and software company had already achieved Gold Partner certification as an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) in September, thus achieving the highest partner status that Microsoft can confer. This status gives Implico a competitive knowledge advantage because, as a Microsoft Gold Partner, the company is always one of the first to learn about the latest developments, allowing it to maintain optimum compatibility of its own solutions with Microsoft technologies.

With this certification, Microsoft confirms that the consulting and software company possesses a high level of expertise with the Microsoft product line. Over the past few years, Implico has held the status of Microsoft Gold Partner in the ISV and Network Infrastructure categories. At the beginning of this year, however, Microsoft fundamentally restructured its partnership program and drastically increased the qualification requirements for each category. For example, the Network Infrastructure category was integrated into the much more comprehensive Midmarket Solution Provider category. Despite these considerably higher standards, Implico succeeded in once again gaining the coveted Gold Partner status. According to Microsoft, only one percent of its partners worldwide are able to achieve this outstanding performance.
