GDC Obtains Microsoft Gold Competency For a Sixth Consecutive Year
Chambersburg, Pennsylvania — August 1, 2012
Global Data Consultants, LLC (GDC), a leading IT Solutions provider in the Quad-state area, is pleased to announce that it has another Microsoft Gold Competency. In addition to Gold Web Development Competency, GDC maintains Silver Desktop, Silver Midmarket Solution Provider, Silver Server Platform, and Silver Management and Virtualizations competencies as well as Small Business Specialist Community membership.
GDC has again obtained the Gold OEM Competency by not only having highly trained and certified experts on staff, but also by proving our abilities through customer references and Customer Satisfaction ratings. To date, less than 1% of Microsoft partners have gained a Gold Competency since Microsoft’s restructuring of its partner program and far fewer have obtained multiple Gold Competencies.
“We are extremely pleased to continue to be recognized as one of the select handful of Microsoft Partners who have demonstrated the skills necessary to achieve a Gold Competency,” said Dan Logan, Vice-President of Application Services for GDC. “Our partnership with Microsoft has allowed us to develop comprehensive technology solutions that deliver business value to our clients.”
What Does it Mean to be Microsoft Gold-Certified?
A Microsoft Gold-Certified partner is a company that has agreed to collaborate and establish a close working relationship with Microsoft. Having that title means the company who applied itself has earned the highest standards of Microsoft’s widely-recognized partnership program. Achieving such a status means Microsoft has declared that the company has committed itself to evolving Microsoft technologies for the interests of its own needs as well as those of its clients.
