National managed IT service provider Midshire ® has expanded its Microsoft competencies, upgrading its Silver Partner status to Gold in Small & Midmarket Cloud Solutions, and becoming a coveted Silver Data Centre.
The highest tier of Microsoft’s Partner Network, the accreditation is achieved through rigorous, industry-verified exams and client feedback, and highlights Midshire’s commitment to providing the very best in the sales and support of Microsoft products and services.
Phil Sundet, Group IT Manager at Midshire comments:
“The rate of technological change today makes it paramount for providers of IT products to remain ahead of the curve, and crucially to be able to demonstrate they’re keeping up. It’s no longer acceptable to set up shop, sell IT products, and lack in service and support, and Microsoft knows this.”
Launched in 2000, the partner programme gives members access to a Regional Service Centre for live chat support, and requires partners to demonstrate their knowledge by using Microsoft technology as the primary platform for the firm.
“At Midshire we’ve always understood that one size doesn’t fit all, particularly when it comes to complicated IT infrastructure; but by receiving two Microsoft certifications I think it really shows our ongoing pledge to an excellent service for all.
“There are over 640,000 global members of the Microsoft Partner Network, and only 5 percent of those are certified gold, so it’s a real accolade to my team and their capabilities, they should feel very proud!”
The Microsoft Partner Network is made up of a wide range of businesses, from manufacturers, software vendors, and resellers, to telecommunications organisations, internet hosting companies, and marketing agencies.
