Azzure breaks all records to win Gold in race for Microsoft Certified Partnership
Sheffield-based Azzure IT has become fastest growing Microsoft Partner in the UK and the quickest to achieve Microsoft Dynamics Gold ERP Partner, a feat that would normally take more than three years.
“It would normally take a company three years or more to achieve the Microsoft Competency status of Gold ERP Certified Partner, but Azzure has achieved it within 15 months,” explains Andrew Wyld, Microsoft Dynamics NAV Product Manager. “It’s a phenomenal achievement and demonstrates Azzure’s capability, commitment and expertise. ‘ERP Competency’ provides customers and prospects confidence they are dealing with a Partner that is trained, certified and experienced in delivering Microsoft Dynamics solutions. Azzure have really embraced the Microsoft Dynamics NAV solution which is a testament to them and great news for the customers they will be working with.”
Azzure joins just 39 other UK companies to reach the highest level of Microsoft Partnership. It had to meet a stringent set of criteria and undergo a rigorous, auditable approval process to achieve Gold accreditation, from training and qualifications for staff, to customer satisfaction and overall business performance (customer retention, new customers and business growth). Certification recognises best-in-class capability of Microsoft Dynamics Partners throughout the world.
As well as implementing Dynamics NAV for a number of leading manufacturing companies during 2012, Azzure also counts the national Labour Party among its new customers. Will McIntee, Microsoft ERP Volume Channel Development Manager, is impressed with the speed of growth of the company and attributes this to depth of experience: “We were well aware of the people at Azzure prior to them agreeing to partner with Microsoft for Dynamics NAV. Azzure boasts a highly qualified team; not least MD, Craig Such, who has been implementing ERP and accounting solutions for more than 22 years. Their track record speaks for itself.”
“We are proud to be the fastest growing Dynamics NAV Partner in the UK and incredibly pleased to have achieved such a high standard and so quickly,” says Craig Such. He believes this top level of Microsoft partnership is not only reassuring for customers, but will also bring future value: “Accreditation recognises our close working relationship with Microsoft, which means we are always up-to-date with its latest developments, and receive a rich set of benefits, including access to Microsoft resources, training and support.”
