We recently renewed our Microsoft Gold Application Development competency, which demonstrates a “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment. This competency distinguishes us as being in the top 1 percent of Microsoft’s partner ecosystem.

“Renewing our Microsoft competencies showcases our expertise and commitment to today’s technology market, while highlighting our deep knowledge of Microsoft and its products,” said Kevin Welch, President of Integra. “Our goal is to advance our customers’ goals and ultimate success by serving as technology advisors for their business requirements.”

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.
