PCS has the distinction of being a Microsoft Certified Partner since 1995. The Microsoft Certified Partner status is a Microsoft verified award for independent technical support companies that work closely with the industry expert and demonstrate expertise with the Microsoft suite of products and services. Our Microsoft Certified status means that we have regular contact with Microsoft, including participation in BETA testing, advanced release training, exclusive tools, technical support and more!
Microsoft Certified Partner Requirements
In addition to the close level of collaboration between PCS International and Microsoft, there were many credentials and verifications required in order for PCS International to be named a Microsoft Certified Partner – a distinction that must be renewed each year. A few of these high-standards recognized by Microsoft include technical credentials of PCS International employees (the PCS team includes Microsoft Certified Systems Engineers and several Microsoft Certified Professionals), business assessments and customer references.
Why Work With a Microsoft Certified Partner?
With our Microsoft Certified status and close relationship with Microsoft, we can get access to better information more quickly than others. Also, as a Microsoft Certified Partner and member of the Small Business Solutions Partners we have direct access and information from Microsoft on a regular basis regarding needs and updates that relate to small business.
When you work with a Microsoft Certified company you are guaranteed to be working with an IT expert that is experienced with Microsoft products and services. The certification also helps customers distinguish between knowledgeable service providers as each recognized Microsoft Certified Partner has met established criteria, including deployment capabilities for Microsoft technology.
While the Microsoft Certified recognition certainly benefits PCS International in becoming more knowledgeable about Microsoft products, as a result we are able to attract new customers and put our growing Microsoft knowledge-base and capabilities to work in support of our customers’ business interests.
In addition, PCS International also has the privilege of being assigned a dedicated TPAM by Microsoft for a “direct line” to Microsoft anytime we need it. This privilege is reserved for the few Microsoft Certified Partners who have shown a dedication to Microsoft products over time.
