Enterprise collaboration applications developer, Workshare, has attained Gold Application Development competency from Microsoft, putting it in the top one per cent of the vendor’s partner ecosystem.
Workshare is a collaboration platform architected specifically for the enterprise and industries handling sensitive and proprietary information. The competency serves as a differentiator for the developer.
“Through our Gold partnership and technology integration into the Microsoft product portfolio, Workshare enhances Microsoft value and drives SharePoint adoption for our customer base,” Workshare Chief executive officer (CEO), Anthony Foy, said.
“Our applications work together to transform SharePoint into a central document management system.”
Achieving the accolade requires partners to successfully complete exams to prove their level of technology expertise, and to designate the resulting Microsoft Certified Professionals to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity.
Partners must also submit customer references as prove of successful projects (along with implementing a yearly customer satisfaction study), meet a revenue commitment, and pass technology and/or sales assessments.
As a result of the achievement, Workshare has access to a set of benefits which assist it in acquiring new customers, and helping it 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.
