South Africa’s Network Platforms, a national IT solutions provider, has secured Microsoft Gold Certification and is now an official Microsoft Certified Gold Partner.
This comes after over two years’ concerted effort by the company to advance its Silver Partner status and reinforce its in-house Microsoft-based expertise.
As a Microsoft Certified Gold Partner, Network Platforms automatically has exposure to the latest global solutions, technology and best practices. It also has a level of access to infrastructure and services that continue to impact the ICT supply and integration market.
Additional benefits associated with this status include building networks within Microsoft and with other Microsoft partners, access to Microsoft software and in-depth product information as well as use of Microsoft.com to promote offerings.
Certified partners also have the advantage of free licenses for Microsoft software to use within the business, access to the Partner Learning Centre and Technical Sales Assistance.
The benefits of this level of exposure to resources and of skilled Microsoft certified engineers at Network Platforms, is automatically transferred to the client.
“Clients are rest assured that we have the technical ability to support their infrastructures,” says Bradley Love, MD at Network Platforms. “Our Silver Partner status placed us within the top five percent of Microsoft partners worldwide and this latest achievement entrenches our position as a global leader in this market.”
