Aspire Retains Microsoft Gold
North East managed services provider Aspire Technology Solutions has successfully retained its Microsoft Gold Partner Status.
Gateshead based Aspire first obtained the prestigious Gold Certified Partner award back in 2007 - which is presented on an annual basis - and has now been presented with it again after demonstrating continued expertise in providing customer satisfaction using Microsoft products and technologies.
Gold Certified Partners are the highest level of certification recognised by Microsoft, for which Aspire was required to demonstrate it proficiency in a number of relevant competencies. Each competency has a unique set of requirements and benefits, formulated to accurately represent the specific skills and services that partners bring to the technology industry.
Of the achievement, Nigel Begg, Managing Director for Aspire said: “Receiving Microsoft Gold Partner Status again this year proves to our customers that we are committed to delivering the highest quality products and solutions. It is also evidence of the dedication shown by our technical teams who work hard to ensure that we continually meet and exceed the requirements of each competency.”
As a Gold Certified Partner, Aspire will gain access to a host of Microsoft benefits including training and support, giving them a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
The Microsoft Partner Programme was launched in 2003 and represents Microsoft’s ongoing commitment to the success of partners worldwide. The program offers a single, integrated partnering framework that recognises partner expertise, rewards the total impact that partners have in the technology marketplace, and delivers more value to help partners’ businesses be successful.
Headquartered in Gateshead and with sites in South Tyneside and Central London, Aspire is an award-winning managed services company specialising in hosted services, data centre solutions and traditional IT outsourcing. Established in 2006, Aspire has grown steadily year on year to become a £3m business with a 32-strong workforce.
