During January we successfully renewed our Gold Certification with Microsoft. Our focus competency is Application Development.

_MG_5823

Our firm Mindbite AB has been a partner with Microsoft for over 10 years. In 2009 we a became Silver Certified Partner (Independent Software Vendor), and in 2011 we decided to shoot for the gold-level. Which we succeeded with. In 2012 we managed to maintain our gold-level status.

In 2013 we decided to certify our main product SiteFactory CMS for Microsoft Windows Server 2012. This was a major task, since it’s a complicated procedure to certify an application for gold-level. We upgraded our physical and virtual environments to Windows Server 2012 and using only MinShell on the Test Server, we installed and ran our product flawlessly.

After this certification we were able to continue with our Gold Partner Certification which we completed late December 2013. The Certification Process includes our Gold Certified product SiteFactory CMS, Customer References and a Customer Survey where we scored about twice as high Customer Satisfaction than the average Swedish Partner.

Our Gold Partnership with Microsoft is of great value to both us and our customers. It grants us access to the latest tools before our non-partner competition, and we get first class support from Microsoft during our Product Development.

There are only about 70 companies, that are Gold Certified Partners for Application Development in Sweden. Only five of those are in our greater region, including us.

For the second year we have reached the gold status level in our partnership with Microsoft. Mindbite AB is now a Microsoft Gold Partner in the Application Development competency.

Gold

We completed the competency requirements a month ago, which means that we’ve been a Gold Certified Partner for about 13 months (including last years achievements). The competency we’ve been working with was formerly called Independent Software Vendor (ISV).

The competency has now been merged with the following competencies and is now called Application Development

  • Software Development
  • Web Development

We are very happy with this transformation and we believe that our customers and future customers will have a better understanding about the meaning of this partnership. Simply put, it means that we are the best at Application Development. And this is important since we work with both Web Development and Software Development for several platforms, including computers, tablets and phones.

The requirements for this competency are tough, so we are very proud of our achievements. And we will continue our hard work to keep our gold partnership with Microsoft.

As a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Company we place ourselves in the top 5% of Microsoft Partners worldwide. In Sweden we are currently one out of 36 companies with this competency. Worldwide we are one out of 908 companies. In our region “Småland” we share this competency with only two companies; Visma SPSC AB and Litium Affärskommunikation AB.
