Kalibrate Technologies Achieves Microsoft Gold Application Development Competency
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. --(Business Wire)--
Kalibrate Technologies, global provider of fuels pricing and retail
location intelligence, today announced it has attained a Gold
Application Development competency, demonstrating a "best-in-class"
ability and commitment to meet Microsoft (News - Alert) 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.
Kalibrate helps fuel retailers implement effective fuels pricing and
retail location solutions to increase profitability, analyze retail
networks, pinpoint growth opportunities and optimize capital investment
to enhance operational performance. The achievement of this competency
is part of Kalibrate's goal to maintain its gold level accreditation in
the Micrsoft Partner Program, something the company has achieved each
year since 2003.
"This Microsoft Gold Application Development competency strengthens our
expertise in and commitment to today's technology market and
demonstrates our team's knowledge of Microsoft products," said Bob
Stein, president and chief executive officer of Kalibrate Technologies.
"It is an honor to be a member of this elite group of partner companies
and to have the opportunity to deliver sophisticated and high value
business solutions to our clients."
Earning the Application Development competency helps partners
differentiate themselves as a trusted expert to their customers through
development and deployment of commercial or custom applications built
using core Microsoft technologies like Windows Server and Windows 8
operating systems, the Windows Azure platform, Microsoft Visual Studio
2012 development system, Microsoft BizTalk Server and emerging
cloud-based and web business models. By gaining access to a
comprehensive set of benefits through the Application Development
competency, partners can acquire new customers and help them be more
productive and profitable through deployment of business applications,
advanced web portals or rich client user interfaces that run on premises
or in the cloud.
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.
