UNICOM Engineering Now Microsoft Gold Certified OEM Partner
By Rory Lidstone, TMCnet Contributing Writer
Earlier this year, long time provider of application platforms, deployment solutions and lifecycle support services for software technology developers and OEMs, NEI (News - Alert), changes its name to UNICOM Engineering and is a wholly owned subsidiary of UNICOM (News - Alert) Global.
No matter what its name is, though, UNICOM Engineering is known for providing flawless execution of customer requests at every step, from the initial planning stages to manufacture and delivery.
With this level of commitment to appliance deployment, it’s no wonder that the company has achieved the status of Microsoft (News - Alert) Gold Certified OEM Partner. In particular, this status recognizes UNICOM Engineering’s competencies in server platforms, ISV/software solutions, and security solutions. UNICOM Engineering has been a Microsoft Partner since 2005.
Microsoft Gold Certified Partners are companies that offer the highest level of competence and expertise with Microsoft technologies. As such, in order to achieve Gold Certification, organizations must complete a series of rigorous tests proving that their level of technology expertise meets certain standards. Furthermore, these organizations have to submit customer references and demonstrate their commitment to customer satisfaction.
In terms of the last two requirements, UNICOM Engineering likely had little trouble, as it has worked with a number of companies spanning various industries, always providing the same high level of service. Indeed, the company worked with Universal Electric earlier this year and received positive words from the energy efficient electrical power solutions provider.
“The attainment of our Microsoft Gold Certified Partner status is a testament to our market leadership and demonstrates our continuing commitment to serving the needs of customers who rely on Microsoft-based solutions,” said Jeff Hudgins (News - Alert), vice president of marketing for UNICOM Engineering, in a statement. “This is another example of our success in partnering with industry-leading technology providers to deliver best-in-class solutions that meet the demanding requirements of our customers.”
