A Lisburn-based IT firm has been recognised by Microsoft for demonstrating a ‘best-in-class’ ability and commitment to meet customers’ evolving needs in today’s mobile-first, cloud-first world.

P2V Systems recently attained Gold Cloud Platform Competency for distinguishing itself within Microsoft’s partner ecosystem.

To earn a Microsoft gold competency, partners must successfully complete exams, resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals, to prove their level of technology expertise. They then must designate these certified professionals to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. Customer references are then submitted that demonstrate successful projects, meet a revenue and or consumption/usage performance commitment and pass technology and sales assessments.

“Achieving the Microsoft Gold Cloud Platform Competency is an indication of the level of expertise and knowledge we have reached in the provision of Microsoft cloud services,” said Stephen McCann, CEO of P2V Systems.

“We constantly strive to deliver our customers solutions that will improve the way they work and make their IT an asset for the business. As a Microsoft gold partner, our customers will benefit from our relationship with Microsoft and our deep understanding of their solutions.”

Stephen continued: “P2V Systems is committed to providing tailored cloud solutions to migrate customers from traditional hosting environments to the Microsoft Cloud. Taking a consultative approach, we consider the needs and required benefits that can be met by cloud solutions.

“Our expertise means customers can benefit from reduced operational costs, as well as a reduced time to market, in addition to the many other benefits delivered by the cloud.”

Gavriella Schuster, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. said: “By achieving a Gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology.”

“These partners have a deep expertise that puts them in the top of our partner ecosystem, and their proficiency will help customers drive innovative solutions.”
