March 21, 2006 - Redstone Managed Solutions today announced it has become a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, representing the highest level of competence and expertise with Microsoft technologies and a close working relationship with the company.
Redstone had previously been a Microsoft certified partner but following recent company restructuring Redstone Managed Solutions is now able to focus more on Microsoft technologies, leaving voice, data, and telecoms to other Redstone divisions. This strengthened focus, combined with the quality of Redstone's staff with Microsoft qualifications in sales and engineering, numerous client references detailing successful projects involving Microsoft products, and the significant volume of Microsoft product sales by Redstone, have been the major factors influencing Redstone's Microsoft Gold Partner accreditation.
Karl Noakes, director of the partner development group at Microsoft, commented: "As a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, Redstone Managed Solutions is among the elite of the Microsoft partner community. Our Gold partners are highly equipped to deliver business-driven technology solutions to their customers and are highly valued by Microsoft."
Tariq Said, managing director, Redstone Managed Solutions, said: "This accreditation is fantastic news both for Redstone and our clients. Redstone has a privileged working relationship with Microsoft technologies and this means our clients are better supported by us through the quality of resource made available to us from Microsoft in technical services, sales and marketing."
