What It Means To Be A Dynamics Gold Partner: Microsoft Certified Professionals Onboard With 'Customer References.'

Posted by IES on Dec 3, 2014 6:42:00 PM

GOLD_CERTIFIEDLet’s face it, the digital landscape can be a real scary place, particularly if you’re going it alone when purchasing ERP software. Worse still, after purchasing, is attempting to implement the platform without a go-to vendor who is behind you 100% after the sale.

For sure, part of the challenge for owners of SMBs today is learning from their mistakes, like making that ERP purchase without really understanding the needs of their own  business.

But the widespread availability of productivity software beckons many business owners to make the leap before they’re ready. Often, they are just too eager to leave behind their legacy programs, and find themselves quickly reaching for the newest-and-best platforms that are receiving the most buzz.

Frankly, businesses are better off when they do reach out for guidance in making that purchase. In fact, they should be reaching for the ‘gold’ when considering the investment in Microsoft Dynamics ERP.

For decision-makers to ask,“What it means to be a Dynamics Gold partner?” they’ve pretty much burnished that purchase with a qualified and significant partner within the Microsoft distribution arena.

For starters, a vendor like Internet eBusiness Solutions, has received their distinction as a Dynamics Gold partner because of the “competencies” shown in both the CRM and ERP platforms. Generally, such recognition comes about when a partner is able to field four unique Microsoft Certified Professionals (MCPs).

However, Microsoft raised the technical competency bar when it comes to their Dynamics software: Their Gold Partners must have achieved their level of efficiency by having six MCPs.

Furthermore, the designation comes with a need for references. The vendor must provide customer evidence on how they offered solutions over the last 12 months based on the technology and the products defining their competency levels.
