Accellis Technology Group Achieves Gold Certified Partner Status in Microsoft Partner Program

Jun 29, 2020

 Accellis demonstrates best-in-class capability and market leadership through demonstrated technology success and customer commitment.

Accellis Technology Group today announced it has attained a gold Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions competency, demonstrating a “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s mobile-first, cloud-first world and distinguishing itself within Microsoft’s partner ecosystem.

To earn a Microsoft gold competency, partners must successfully complete exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to prove their level of technology expertise, and then designate these certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. They also must submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects, meet a performance (revenue and or consumption/usage) commitment (for most gold competencies), and pass technology and/or sales assessments.

Accellis continues to lead in client services with new resources provided by Gold Partner access to a robust set of utilities, toolkits, and programs, as well as ongoing training and support. This competency is part of the Accellis strategy to help clients adopt innovative solutions including Microsoft 365, Intune, Azure AD, Azure Information Protection, and Azure IaaS/PaaS/SaaS. 

“The Gold-level partnership with Microsoft is among one of the pinnacle achievements an IT company like Accellis can achieve,” said Brian Guscott, COO at Accellis Technology Group. “A lot of hard work went into making the grade with Microsoft’s stringent certification and education requirements. The new access to dedicated Microsoft resources will allow us to bring a whole new and exciting level of customer service to our clients.”

“By achieving a Gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology,” said Gavriella Schuster, corporate vice president, One Commercial Partner (OCP) at Microsoft Corp. “These partners have a deep expertise that puts them in the top of our partner ecosystem, and their proficiency will help customers drive innovative solutions.”

The Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions competency recognizes partners who are selling and deploying Microsoft Office 365 cloud and hybrid solutions to mid-sized and small business customers.

The Microsoft Partner Network helps partners strengthen their capabilities to showcase leadership in the marketplace on the latest technology, to better serve customers and to easily connect with one of the most active, diverse networks in the world.
