tekVizion Achieves Microsoft Gold Communications Competency
tekVizion demonstrates best-in-class capability and market leadership through demonstrated technology success and customer commitment.
PLANO, Texas, U.S.A. — October 20, 2015 — tekVizion, a leading provider of third-party testing, integration services and custom application development, today announced it has attained a Gold Communications competency, demonstrating a “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment and distinguishing itself within the top 1 percent of 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 (along with implementing a yearly customer satisfaction study), meet a revenue commitment (for most gold competencies), and pass technology and/or sales assessments.
For over a decade, Equipment Manufacturers, ISVs and Service Providers have relied upon tekVizion to accelerate VoIP, SIP Trunking and Unified Communications implementations. As an independent testing and certification lab, tekVizion tests over 400 products and applications yearly. Having a product certified by a third-party lab sends a credible message to end customers that solutions are interoperable and qualified for deployment.
“tekVizion has been providing independent test services on behalf of Microsoft UC solutions since 2008. Obtaining a Microsoft Gold Communications Competency for a third time demonstrates our commitment to help bring interoperable solutions with innovative Microsoft technology to the market. We are pleased to be a part of the Microsoft Partner Network”, said Darlene Smith, Sr. Director of Partner Alliances, tekVizion.
“By achieving a gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology,” said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “These partners have a deep expertise that puts them in the top 1 percent of our partner ecosystem, and their proficiency will help customers drive innovative solutions on the latest Microsoft technology.”
Attaining the Microsoft Communications competency demonstrates partner expertise in videoconferencing, voice over Internet protocol and instant messaging. Equipped with exclusive training, the latest software and support on Microsoft Lync solutions, partners help customers reduce cost of travel, real estate and facilities maintenance while gaining operational efficiencies.
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.
