Intellinet, a highly certified and nationally recognized IT consulting services firm, announced today that it has been selected as one of only 18 national Microsoft Consulting Services (MCS) Preferred Services Partners for 2009.
Historically, MCS—the consulting, technical support, and customer service arm of the world's leading software company—has chosen more than 300 Gold-Certified Partners around the U.S. to co-deliver consulting services to enterprise clients. Recently, however, the consulting group announced a change in their service structure which would only include a highly-select group of less than 20 partners.
In a statement released today, Microsoft notified Intellinet CEO, Hardin Byars, of the organization’s selection as a Preferred Services Partner.
“This is a significant achievement for Intellinet,” stated Mr. Byars. “To have been selected from among 300 highly-competent gold partners is a tribute both to our technical expertise and to our legacy of excellence in maximizing the business value of our clients’ IT investments.”
Over the company’s 15-year history, Intellinet has had a long and successful working relationship with Microsoft Consulting Services in delivering technology solutions to various Fortune 500 companies. Intellinet has also been ranked among Microsoft’s top partners as a member of various Partner Councils, STAR programs, and Deployment Services Programs. In addition, with over 45 customer endorsements, Intellinet earned nine Microsoft Gold Certified Partner competencies in 2008.
Of the nearly 15,000 Microsoft partners in the United States, Intellinet has achieved the distinguished level of a trusted advisor for its clients by strategically leveraging the Microsoft platform and building solutions which align technology improvements with business goals to drive bottom-line results.
