Awards from Strategic Partners
SOFTIP has been a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner for ten years. As the only company within the Slovak Republic we have achieved the competency of a Microsoft Gold Partner for Communications, confirming our professional knowledge of design implementation, deployment and support of the Skype for Business technology (formerly known as Microsoft Lync).
SOFTIP has excelled with extraordinarily innovative solutions based on Microsoft technologies and their successful implementation among global competition for the title of Microsoft Partner of the Year Winner, which it has received a total of two times. This major recognition is a reflection of the excellent and long-term cooperation SOFTIP enjoyed with Microsoft's Slovak representatives.
A string of eight wins in the Microsoft Industry Awards confirms the use of the most advanced technologies and highest level of quality of provided services and solutions. Among them we can now mention also the prestigious prize of a Microsoft Industry Awards 2015 Winner in the cathegory of „Best Cloud Office 365 Enterprise Solution“. „My perception of this award is very specifical. It is not only a confirmation of our quality of work. It also demonstrates a fact that Slovak customers have become aware of the advantages provided by cloud which is perceived as not only a cheaper but also as much more effective alternative to the classic on-premise solutions. This is the future of enterprise information technologies and I am proud of SOFTIP for ranking among leaders in this area,“ said Mr. Ján Schwarz, SOFTIP Technical Director.
In 2015 SOFTIP made also another significant step when achieving the highest possible competency and becoming a Microsoft Gold Cloud Productivity Partner. „The level Gold presents the highest acknowledgement for a partner within the cooperation with the company Microsoft. For the given competency SOFTIP had to meet the qualification criteria, which means that SOFTIP has to employ certified professionals for Microsoft Technologies. The company also had to demonstrate its own expertise in successfully implemented projects, as well as its own ability to fulfill customers´ requirements, guaranteeing the quality which Microsoft expects to be provided by its partners and which Microsoft guarantees to be supplied to its clients. So far, this competency have been achieved by only two partners within the Slovak Republic,“ said Mr. Tibor Koleják, Microsoft Slovakia Sales Director for Small and Medium Enterprises and for Partnership Cooperation.
Almost imediatelly SOFTIP managed to achieve successively its fifth competency within the Microsoft Partner Program, gaining a title of a Microsoft Silver Cloud Platform Partner. Being the last one at the moment, the certificate confirms a high quality and rich experience in the area of implementation of cloud solutions using Microsoft Azure platform. „Each success of this kind means to us not only an award of recognition and a signal of prestige communicated towards our customers, but also an important commitment of constant further improvement of our services and products,“ said Mr. Ján Schwarz, SOFTIP Technical Director.
