On July 22, 2013, Redmond Channel Partner (RCP) identified the best Microsoft partners in the world in their “Microsoft’s 50 Most Competent Partners: 2013” article. RCP ranked New Signature #4 in the United States, and #13 in the world, ahead of industry heavyweights such as HP.
As RCP says, “the partners on this list bring something extraordinary. For customers, it’s the ability to look beyond a specific RFP to underlying companywide issues and identify integrated solutions that leverage the “better together” aspects of the Microsoft stack. For Microsoft, it’s the ability to handle large, multiproduct implementations across geographies. For third-party vendors, it’s the ability to move the needle on multinational sales of new Microsoft-related hardware, software or services.”
New Signature is proud that the firm’s commitment to developing capacity and competency has been recognized by RCP. Each year, New Signature invests more than 12,000 hours in education for the firm’s experts, averaging more than three weeks of training per consultant. This intense focus on professional development ensures that New Signature can consistently provide a broad and deep bench of experts to help CXOs and IT professionals solve business challenges with Microsoft solutions.
RCP identified the best Microsoft partners using the number of competencies in this second-annual list. Per RCP, “Microsoft competencies don’t tell the whole story about a partner’s depth of expertise, but they can be a good measurement of dedication. Under the requirements of the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN), it’s harder to gain competencies than in the old Microsoft Partner Program. Racking up a large number of competencies can now take millions of dollars in annual revenue commitments and sometimes over 100 dedicated Microsoft Certified Professionals on staff.”
