Represents Best-of-Breed Cloud Enablement Services and Ongoing Support of Microsoft Office 365

LOWELL, Mass., (June 7, 2016)PlumChoice, Inc., the leader in specialized technical services for the cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced it has attained Gold competency rating and achieved partner elite status in the Microsoft Cloud Productivity Program. PlumChoice achieved the Gold rating for demonstrating consistent expertise and capabilities in enabling partners to sell and support Microsoft Office 365.

With organizations of all sizes embracing more cloud services, developers like Microsoft are using competency certifications to ensure channel partners and their end users have access to best-of-breed support. PlumChoice arms channel partners with a range of services that allow them to build greater brand affinity through pre-sales guidance, deployment including onboarding, activation and migration, 24/7 support services, and managed services.

“With the explosion of the cloud, channel partners are being asked to pivot their business and own more elements of the customer lifecycle. Until this point, these asks have not been built into their traditional business model,” said Dave Hauser, General Manager, Cloud and Managed Services with PlumChoice. “In order to remain relevant, channel partners must transform the way they work with their customers by engaging them throughout that lifecycle. Receiving a Gold competency rating in Microsoft’s Cloud Productivity program showcases our expertise in supporting the entire customer journey – allowing our partners to provide greater lifetime value and increase revenue.”

“By achieving a Gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology,” said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “These partners have a deep expertise that puts them in the top one percent of our partner ecosystem, and their proficiency will help customers drive innovative solutions on the latest Microsoft technology.”
