(SSYH), a leading provider of ERP and CRM software solutions, today announced it has attained Certified Partner status in the Microsoft Partner Network with a Gold competency in Microsoft Dynamics ERP, recognizing SSYH’s expertise and impact in the technology marketplace. As a Gold Certified Partner, SSYH has demonstrated expertise with Microsoft technologies and a proven ability to meet customers’ needs. Microsoft Certified Partners receive a rich set of benefits, including access, training and support, giving them a competitive advantage in the channel.
“We are extremely pleased to have attained Gold Certified Partner status in the Microsoft Partner Network. This allows us to clearly promote our expertise and relationship with Microsoft,” said Angela Stuart Mills, chief executive officer of SSYH. “The benefits provided through our Gold Certified Partner status will allow us to continue to enhance the offerings that we provide for customers.”
“Customers are looking for partner companies that can bridge the gap between their business demands and technology capabilities,” said Allison Watson, corporate vice president of the Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “They need to trust in a company that can act as an expert adviser for their long-term strategic technology plans. Microsoft Certified Partners, which have certified expertise and direct training and support from Microsoft, can build a positive customer experience with our technologies. Today, Microsoft recognizes Stanley Stuart Yoffee & Hendrix, Inc. as a new Certified Partner for demonstrating its expertise in providing customer satisfaction using Microsoft products and technology.”
As one of the requirements for attaining Certified Partner status, SSYH 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. Within select Competencies, there are Specializations that focus on specific solution areas that recognize deeper expertise within that Competency. Serving as a specialized path to earning those Competencies, Specializations give direct access to the tools and resources that support that specific area of focus.
The Microsoft Dynamics Competency is designed for partners with proven expertise in designing and/or implementing enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) capabilities using Microsoft’s financial, CRM and supply chain management solutions. Microsoft solutions partners have capitalized on this opportunity to help organizations develop and build integrated ERP and CRM solutions around Microsoft technology. The Microsoft Dynamics Competency allows partners to identify their unique, proven proficiency in deploying applications based on Microsoft’s financial, CRM and supply chain management solutions.
“Stanley Stuart Yoffee & Hendrix, Inc. has achieved Microsoft Corporation’s highest standard for partners,” said Doug Kennedy, vice president, Microsoft Dynamics Partners. “The skill sets and expertise they have garnered will help differentiate them in the market and provide quality service to customers.”
“Partners need resources designed to support their expertise in deploying and implementing Microsoft Dynamics ERP products and services worldwide,” said Crispin Read, general manager, Microsoft Dynamics ERP at Microsoft Corp. “Specializations such as this provide SSYH with the tools necessary to help customize, deploy, maintain and use Microsoft Dynamics ERP solutions in today’s global workplace.
“Achieving the Gold Competency in Microsoft Dynamics ERP demonstrates our commitment to mastering the latest technologies and best practices that Microsoft offers,” said Mills. “This enables us to ensure that our customers receive the highest degree of service and the solution that best meets their business needs.”
The Microsoft Partner Program (later renamed Microsoft Partner Network) was launched in October 2003 and represents Microsoft’s ongoing commitment to the success of partners worldwide. The program offers a single, integrated partnering framework that recognizes partner expertise, rewards the total impact that partners have in the technology marketplace, and delivers more value to help partners’ businesses be successful.
