MBA Strengthens Relationship With Microsoft Even Further
MBA IT, the leading IT Services provider & VAR, today announced that it has been awarded Gold Partner status by Microsoft.
London (I-Newswire) July 2, 2012 - MBA IT, the leading IT Services provider & VAR, today announced that it has been awarded Gold Partner status by Microsoft.
The award confirms MBA as an officially acknowledged industry expert on Volume Licensing, and follows similar recognition for its Software Asset Management expertise and Microsoft Cloud Certified status.
Gary Miller, Operations Director at MBA IT said "We are delighted to receive this accreditation, which further cements our strong working relationship with Microsoft. In such a continually-evolving industry as IT Services, customers expect the best companies to keep up with the rapid pace of change and to have this ability acknowledged by Microsoft is a real testament to the commitment, professionalism & genuine passion for the technologies that our staff all have. "
Recent changes to Microsoft’s Partner Accreditation programme have seen many service providers lose Gold Partner status as the criteria for different technical & commercial competencies have become far more stringent, with an increasing number of staff required to gain individual accreditation.
“Many companies were worried about the new criteria,” continues Miller, “but we welcomed the challenge. The harder it is to achieve these accreditations, the more our customers value them. Our hardware, software & services clients have to be confident in our ability to advise on – and deliver – the latest technologies. We always encourage staff to further develop their skills and qualifications because it allows us to better deliver our core services. Companies who try to save money on staff development will quickly find themselves with a team that is demotivated and under-skilled – which is bad news for them & their clients.”
2012 has been a busy year so far for MBA. Alongside achieving Microsoft accreditations, MBA have been investing heavily in developing its team’s skills and expertise around a number of key vendor product sets, as well as expanding its Helpdesk and Remote Support Services Team which offer an extensive selection of Managed Services, Remote Monitoring and Break Fix services.
Technical Director George Ralph considers excellent vendor relationships as central to MBA’s impressive growth:
“We have spent years developing an enviable reputation for technology expertise, and this wouldn’t have been possible without working very closely with our key partners. Alongside Microsoft, we have excellent relationships with VMware, IBM, Symantec, Red Hat, Oracle and Citrix to name just a few. These industry leaders provide the technologies which our customers rely on to do business, so we make sure we are always ahead of the curve in terms of the latest developments.”
MBA has a number of client events planned for 2012, many of which are being run in partnership with Microsoft and other vendors.
“It’s critical that we keep clients informed of technology trends”, continues Ralph. “We were one of the first in the country to achieve Microsoft Cloud Certification because we saw the potential value of the cloud to our clients. Recently we advised on, and procured, a Citrix Load-balanced Cluster solution for a client. That was the first such solution implemented anywhere in the world. That’s not something most service providers would be able to do, and it was only possible because we place such value on making sure our team know the technologies available, and can apply the right solution to the right client.”
