SBS Group, a leading technology consulting firm, has officially achieved a Gold Competency in ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) through Microsoft’s Partner Network. Gold is the highest competency level obtainable through Microsoft. This further demonstrates SBS’ capabilities in providing implementation, consulting and support services for business management solutions including Microsoft Dynamics AX, GP and SL.
Microsoft’s Partner Network recently made comprehensive changes to their certification process, significantly increasing the depth and breadth of requirements needed to achieve an advanced competency. Microsoft estimates that less than less than 25% of its partners will achieve gold competencies. The new criteria to achieve these competency levels include requirements around consulting staff, revenue commitments, implementation methodology certifications and customer references. Although, partners had up to 12 months to meet these new requirements, SBS Group was able to achieve the highest certification for ERP in just three months due to its highly-qualified staff. SBS has also earned an additional Silver competency for Portals and Collaboration.
In achieving these advanced competencies, SBS is also a long-standing Microsoft President’s Club Member and 2007 Microsoft Dynamics Partner of the Year winner for Dynamics SL. “The recent changes in Microsoft’s partner network raise the bar for the entire partner ecosystem. Our team’s dedication to achieving the highest level of standards enables us to continually increase the value we deliver to clients,” states James R. Bowman, Jr., President of SBS Group.
