Red Level, the Novi-based technology consulting firm, today announced it has attained Gold Cloud Productivity, Gold Hosting, Gold Midmarket Solution Provider, and Gold Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions competencies and Silver Datacenter, Silver Messaging, and Silver Cloud Platform competencies, demonstrating outstanding ability and commitment to meet Microsoft customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment and distinguishing itself within the top 1 percent of Microsoft’s partner ecosystem. A portfolio of competencies showcases that Red Level is committed to focusing on in-demand, business solution areas, along with ensuring it can meet the evolving needs of customers because of market changes.
To earn a Microsoft competency, partners must successfully complete exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to prove their level of technology expertise. Partners must also submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects. For gold competencies, partners must also implement a yearly customer satisfaction study and, for many competencies, meet a performance commitment.
Red Level provides technology strategy, consulting, and service solutions to a range of small, medium, and large enterprises in the manufacturing, health care, automotive/OEM, retail, professional services and other industries. Its focus on strong partnering relationships, long-term planning, and measurable business value for its services result in Red Level operating as a strategic ally to its clients, rather than as a vendor.
“We are enormously pleased we succeeded in attaining the level of expertise and commitment that these competencies represent, but in one sense, this is business as usual for us,” says David King, CEO of Red Level. “For a long time, we’ve made continuous improvement a cornerstone of our business practices. We’re well aware that to compete and succeed on the level that we want to, we need to continually evolve and continually refine what we do. That means constantly working to acquire additional skills and knowledge. “The best thing is that this provides even more proof to our clients and to the marketplace that yes, we really are this good at what we do, and we can be trusted to deliver for the companies we work with.”
“By achieving a portfolio of competencies, partners demonstrate deep expertise and consistent capability on the latest Microsoft technology,” said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “These partners show true commitment to meeting customer technology needs today and into the future.”
The Microsoft Partner Network helps partners strengthen their capabilities to showcase leadership in the marketplace on the latest technology, to better serve customers and, with 640,000 Microsoft partners in their ecosystem, to easily connect with one of the most active, diverse networks in the world.
