Carousel Industries now is a Microsoft Communications Gold Competency partner.
The systems integrator spent three months taking Microsoft-specific exams and submitting customer references to prove its eligibility for the designation. As a result, Carousel has earned the top-notch Microsoft recognition and added new technical and sales staff positions so it can hire more Microsoft communications experts.
“By attaining Microsoft Communications Gold Competency, Carousel is now even more proficient at meeting the professional services and consulting needs of our customers," said James Marsh, senior vice president of Carousel Industries, in a press release. “This will be a catalyst to return to existing customers to help them manage their communications and collaboration environments, but it also provides the opportunity to have conversations about other technology trends like BYOD management and unified messaging."
A relatively small number of Microsoft partners worldwide hold the Gold status; Carousel said it met the requirements in record time, having achieved Silver status less than 90 days prior.
