Terminal Achieves a Gold Midmarket Solution Provider competency

Boston, MA – March 24, 2015 – Terminal announces they have achieved a Gold Midmarket Solution Provider competency, demonstrating a "best-in-class" ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers' evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment and distinguishing itself within the top 1 percent of Microsoft’s partner ecosystem.

Attaining the Midmarket Solution Provider competency demonstrates partner expertise in the most current infrastructure solutions based on Microsoft desktop, business-management and server technologies. Equipped with exclusive training, the latest software and support, partners are able to implement solutions to meet midmarket customers’ unique business challenges and infrastructure needs.

"This Microsoft Gold Midmarket Solution Provider competency showcases our expertise in and commitment to today’s technology market and demonstrates our deep knowledge of Microsoft and its products," according to Termina.

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.

"By achieving a gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology," said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. "These partners have a deep expertise that puts them in the top 1 percent of our partner ecosystem, and their proficiency will help customers drive innovative solutions on the latest Microsoft technology."
