Being an authorized Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP (News - Alert)), it was only a matter of time until CloudRoute earned a Silver Data Center competency certificate; it just so happens that the company managed the accomplishment this week. A Silver Data Center competency certificate signifies CloudRoute’s ability to meet Microsoft (News - Alert) customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment.

Of course, Microsoft’s cloud customers are some of the most discerning around, so earning silver competency is no small feat. Indeed, partners that want to achieve that level of competency must successfully demonstrate expertise via rigorous exams that culminate in Microsoft certifications. In addition, to ensure the highest quality services, Microsoft requires a number of customer references for successful implementation and customer satisfaction.

In other recent CloudRoute news, the company hired a new VP of Sales, Chris Wolff, in December. In addition, CloudRoute will be participating in ITEXPO this week, where the company’s head of marketing David Byrd (News - Alert) will participate in the conference program.

“The Microsoft Silver competency showcases our expertise and knowledge of Microsoft’s Online solutions including Office 365,” said Terrance Emdy, CTO at CloudRoute. “Achieving this level of competency assures CloudRoute Partner members that their customers will be well served by highly trained and diligent IT and networking experts.”

With a focus on delivering cloud solutions and services to small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) from 20 to 1,000 employees, CloudRoute manages the complete customer lifecycle for various Microsoft cloud solutions, including Office 365, Enterprise Mobility Suite and Dynamics CRM. The company also provides advanced migration, integration and customization services in order to address the need for IT engineering and management services.

As a Silver Competency recipient, CloudRoute has demonstrated consistent capability, expertise and commitment in delivering its services.

“By achieving a silver competency, organizations have proven their expertise in specific technology areas, placing them among the top 5 percent of Microsoft partners worldwide,” said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp.
