IT solutions specialist TSG has struck gold with a “best in class” endorsement from global technology giant Microsoft.

The company has been awarded a sixth Gold Status Competency, which reaffirms its position as an expert in Microsoft technology and giving it a competitive edge within the IT industry.

The competencies are awarded by Microsoft to partners with proven skills and experience in specific areas to set them apart from the competition.

The latest competency achieved by TSG is in small business, adding to collaboration and content, customer relationship management, enterprise resource management, midmarket solution provider and server platform.

TSG, which was founded in Newcastle, has regional centres across the country including in Scotland, Teesside, Manchester, the East and West Midlands, Leeds and Southampton. Less than 1% of the 650,000 Microsoft partners worldwide are regarded highly enough to hold a single gold competency, so to hold six is a rare achievement internationally.

“By achieving a gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology,” said Phil Sorgen, corporate VP Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp.
