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.
