“Today, Microsoft recognizes Quexion as a new Microsoft Gold
Certified Partner for demonstrating its expertise in providing customer
satisfaction with Microsoft products and technology.”
As one of the requirements for attaining Gold Certified Status,
Quexion had to declare a Microsoft Competency. Microsoft Competencies are
designed to help differentiate a partner’s capabilities with specific Microsoft
technologies to customers looking for a particular type of solution.
Each competency has a unique set of requirements and benefits,
formulated to accurately represent the specific skills and services that
partners bring to the technology industry.
The Microsoft Integrated E-Business Competency is designed for Microsoft Certified and
Gold Certified Partners with proven proficiency in implementing and deploying
server-based portals for driving Internet commerce and business applications using
Microsoft tools and software. Delivering the high levels of reliability and availability
required of business-to-customer Web sites requires not only great technology but also
the competency to plan, deploy, support and migrate those solutions.
Microsoft Gold Certified Partners enrolled in this competency have demonstrated knowledge
of, and experience with, the deployment of Internet-based
solutions and infrastructure using Microsoft tools and software.
“Partners play a critical role in delivering solutions to our customers that complement their applications
and services,” said Ted Kummert, corporate vice president of the
Business Process and Integration Division at Microsoft.
“The value of Solutions Competencies is that they allow Microsoft to deliver
resources and training to partners, enabling them to better meet the needs of their
Microsoft Gold Certified Partners enrolled in the Networking Infrastructure Solutions
Competency have proved their competency in implementing technology solutions based on
either the Microsoft Windows Server™ 2003 or Windows® 2000 Server operating system, with
a particular focus on Microsoft Small Business Server 2000 and Windows Small Business
Server 2003. These implementations may include crafting solutions that connect
Windows-based servers, PC locations and the Internet; installing a server farm; or
building a small-business Windows Server stand-alone solution that includes file
and print capabilities.
Designed to provide additional benefit and support to partners specializing
in collaboration, portals and other productivity solutions, the Information Worker
Productivity Solutions Competency is utilized by Gold Certified Partners that provide
their customers with solutions built on familiar programs that enable them to better
manage, prioritize and collaborate on increasing volumes of information. Partners that
have obtained the Information Worker Competency can help their customers realize increased
service revenues and new market opportunities.
