Seyfor’s partnership with Microsoft has recently reached a new level. The company was previously classified as a Microsoft Gold Partner. Now, as part of a new partner programme, Seyfor holds all six Microsoft Solutions Partner designations, putting it at the forefront of technology solutions.
Background to the change in partnership with Microsoft
As part of its cloud-focused strategy and reflecting its ongoing commitment to its partners, Microsoft has completely redesigned its partner programme. In October 2022, the name of the partner programme changed from Microsoft Partner Network to Microsoft Cloud Partner Program, replacing the old Silver and Gold memberships with a new form of membership called Solutions Partner Designations.
This decision was made in order to better match current market needs and to offer partners (such as Seyfor):
- broader opportunities for collaboration with Microsoft in various areas,
- benefits that will help them set themselves apart from competitors and build relationships with more customers.
Seyfor as a holder of six Solutions Partner designations
Under the new partner programme, Seyfor meets all requirements set by Microsoft and has therefore successfully obtained the following designations:
- Solutions partner for business applications
- Solutions partner for data and AI (Azure)
- Solutions partner for digital and app innovation (Azure)
- Solutions partner for infrastructure (Azure)
- Solutions partner for security
- Solutions partner for modern work
Acquiring all six designations offered by Microsoft is certainly not par for the course, and puts Seyfor in an exceptional position among Microsoft Cloud Partners. This achievement underlines Seyfor’s competences, quality of service and commitment to providing top IT solutions. Customers can feel confident that they are working with a team whose quality meets the highest Microsoft partner standards and who understands technological trends and innovations.
“The fact that Seyfor has obtained all six Microsoft Solutions Partner designations is a reflection of the quality of work and the experience of our entire team. Many thanks to all of our team members for their commitment to this process. I am confident that this recognition will open up new opportunities for Seyfor, and that we will be able to continue to strengthen our position in the IT sector,” says Peter Franc, manager of the Enterprise & Public Division at Seyfor.
