What is a Microsoft Gold Partner?


Most technology is an expensive expenditure and when a business looks to invest in new, due diligence is often involved. Similar to online shopping and reading a few reviews before you land on a purchase, most organizations look for reviews or some sort of seal of approval before partnering or purchasing from someone. If your business is looking at any Microsoft products, they rely on a designation system for their certified reseller program. Microsoft calls its certifications competencies. There are various levels of Microsoft Partner certifications, but you should always look for a Microsoft Gold Partner.

A Microsoft Gold partner must be committed to abiding by the highest standards of customer service and working closely with Microsoft. They are skilled to the highest level on all Microsoft platforms and can offer you guidance or advice in using their technology.

Microsoft technology advances constantly, and their competency requirements are updated to reflect those changes.  This ensures your Microsoft Partner is always up to date on the very latest Microsoft offerings and advancements. To become a Microsoft Gold Partner, several members of the team had to be certified in that area and let me tell you, those examinations are not easy to accomplish. And it is not enough to become certified, you must keep up with those certifications regularly or your designation will be dropped.

If for some reason you have a problem your Microsoft Gold Partner can’t solve, they have a direct line to Microsoft to help get your issue resolved a lot quicker than you could have done on your own.
