olv enters top 1% of Microsoft’s Partnership program.
By achieving a Gold Competency in Application Development, Leeds-based travel technology agency Zolv, demonstrates “best-in-class” ability and a commitment to meeting customers’ evolving needs, entering the top 1% of Microsoft’s Partner ecosystem.
Earning the Gold Competency for Application Development, the highest level of partnership Microsoft offers, differentiates Zolv as a Trusted Expert having a consistent track-record of the design, development and deployment of successful commercial and custom web and cloud applications built using core Microsoft technologies.
Gold Competency Partners must complete a number of technical exams (individual developers become Microsoft Certified Solution Developers) proving technical expertise, and ensure a certain level of staffing capacity in their chosen disciplines. But that alone is not enough – partners are also required to submit customer references demonstrating their technological expertise in practice, along with a commitment to customer satisfaction and a history of consistent delivery of successful solutions.
By gaining access to a comprehensive set of benefits through the Application Development competency, Gold partners can assist customers in being even more productive and profitable through a deployment of business applications, advanced web portals or rich client user interfaces that run on premise or in the cloud.
Janet Gibbons, Director of Partner Strategy and Programmes at Microsoft UK states, “With a Gold competency, Zolv has made an investment in developing their capability to deliver an integrated and customised technology solution to support today’s customer demand.”
Zolv’s Managing Director Olly Wenn said, “Last year we achieved Silver competency which was fantastic, but we are always pushing to stay ahead. Achieving the Gold competency this year demonstrates Zolv’s commitment to individual learning and development, but it is ultimately a result of the team’s hard work and thirst for developing their skills'.
Achieving Gold Competency and displaying the Microsoft Gold Application Development logo reassures customers that Zolv has attained a distinguished level of competency and is committed to providing innovative solutions based on Microsoft technologies.
