While many people worry about the downsides of being a Microsoft gold partner, the fact is that there are plenty of advantages to being a Microsoft Gold Partner. A Microsoft gold partner has full access to Microsoft development tools and resources. And this means they can get their work done faster, more efficiently. 

In terms of cost, there are many benefits that come with being a Gold Partner. This includes free licensing for design and test, which is a costly service on its own. Being a Microsoft Gold Partner also means that organizations have access to the ‘Microsoft 365 suite’ for enterprise management. 

How to choose the Best Microsoft Partner for your Business?

Microsoft partners are a great choice to turn to once your company has decided that Microsoft benefits are in line with your company’s needs or you need a reliable and trustworthy company for all Microsoft software needs.

But, choosing the best Microsoft partner isn’t an easy task. You have to take into account a variety of factors before choosing one. 

We will walk you through the process of finding a partner, what to look for in a partner, and what to do when considering partnering with Microsoft. 

Firstly, it is important to understand what type of business you are into and which services would be most beneficial for your business before finding a partner. 

It’s a misconception that all Microsoft partners provide exactly the same services as one another. However, in reality, every partner does different things and focuses on a specific set of services. 

So, what should you look for when choosing the best Microsoft partner to suit the needs of your company? Here’s our list based on what we have heard from our customers.

What is a Microsoft Certified Partner?

First, Microsoft calls its “Competences” certifications. They are prerequisites that meet the specific customers’ requirements and are recognizable for the future. A partner can be certified with a Silver or Gold certificate. 

The distinction between the two types of partners is how they work with Microsoft to provide the best possible solutions for clients. 

In order to be eligible for a sliver status, a partner must have at least one of these seven capabilities:

  • Cloud Platform 
  • Developer Tools
  • Enterprise Mobility 
  • Security
  • IT optimization 
  • Productivity 
  • Collaboration Tools 

Gold partners have all seven of these capabilities, so this is one way they differ from their silver counterparts. 

Silver competence is offered to firms with the highest and most specialized capability and commitment. Microsoft recognizes companies that have been recognized by Silver to offer the best customer solutions and to conduct a rigorous and auditable process of approval. One of the top five percent of Microsoft partners worldwide is a company with a silver competency.

Microsoft Gold Partners‘ value lies in guaranteeing professional support by experts and is the highest standard that a Microsoft Partner can attain. By continuing an annual review of Microsoft, you can make sure you can safely transform your company as we establish our management’s expertise and provide customers with full satisfaction.
