Technical Drive delighted to become a Microsoft Gold Partner

Technical Drive delighted to become a Microsoft Gold Partner

We are delighted to be awarded Microsoft Gold Partner status, and wanted to share what this means for our clients.

Did you know? Out of the 400,000+ Microsoft Partners across the world, only 1% are qualified to be Gold Partners. Meaning the Gold Partner badge is not an easy one to attain, it takes time, experience and proof-of-skill.

Why choose a Microsoft Gold certified partner?

Although you can see we’ve gone to a lot of effort to achieve this Microsoft Gold Partner status, what does this actually mean for you, our customers? 

Here are the top 5 reasons why you should be looking for a Microsoft Gold Partner agency

1. Requires a large number of people to be certified 

You can be sure that there are plenty of people at Technical Drive who know the product well as at least 15 people must have passed the exams to be certified. This means that there are lots of us on the end of the phone who can help resolve any issues you may be having.

2. There are a number of specialist fields so you can find someone competent in the area important to you

As experts in the Microsoft Ecosystem, Technical Drive have passed the Cloud Productivity Competency, to ensure we are able to provide the best possible service to our customers. 

According to Microsoft, "The Cloud Productivity competency is for partners who specialise in enterprise deployments of Office 365. [You can] differentiate your company with this competency as a proven cloud solution provider for customers searching for qualified cloud solution partners."

3. Always up to date with the latest changes in technology 

Every time the Microsoft software updates, the Microsoft Gold accreditation requirements are updated too. So you know that when you choose the services of Microsoft Gold Partners they will have the latest product knowledge.

4. Microsoft Gold Partners get licenses for demos and development

This serves two great benefits to our clients. The first is that it gives us a chance to try new ideas and test them out on a demo license before committing to the financial purchase of a full licence, which can save money in the long run. 

But it also allows us to give you a competitive advantage as we can try out demos and licences that your competitors don’t have access to.

5. A Microsoft Gold Partner has access to Microsoft that other companies don’t

As a Microsoft Gold Partner Agency, Technical Drive have access to

  • Increased Microsoft Technical Support:
  • Microsoft Product Support On-Premises for additional incidents
  • Unlimited Signature Product Support for Cloud services
  • Additional Advisory Hours 

Now that we have attained Microsoft Gold Partner status we are one of the few companies that can offer our clients both assurance ​​of our Microsoft knowledge alongside being ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 accredited for quality and data security compliance. 
This is not just a badge. It is the evidence that we deliver a truly high-quality service.

Technical Drive…driving your business forward through technology; remotely, onsite, from home and the Cloud.
