After assisting customers with Microsoft services for more than a decade, Vanick Digital has been recognized by Microsoft as a Gold Partner in the application development competency.

Vanick Digital has been recognized by Microsoft as a Gold Partner in the application development competency.

"Gold Partner status means that Vanick Digital can provide development services at the highest level that Microsoft recognizes," Vanick Principal Jim Van de Vuurst said. "This partnership allows us to better utilize Microsoft products for both our clients and our internal operations."

Whether it's helping businesses install and configure Microsoft products like Office 365 and SharePoint or it's creating a custom solution that bridges the gap between out-of-the-box solutions and the needs of an organization, Vanick Digital has assisted customers with Microsoft services for more than a decade.

"With the added benefit of Gold Partner status, Vanick's ability to deliver SharePoint solutions, custom web applications, and web services for integrated systems is better than ever," Van de Vuurst added.

In order to earn gold status, Vanick was required to submit a past project for review. As a result, TOTUS, a customer communications management solution developed by the company, is now a Microsoft tested product for Windows Server 2012 R2.

In addition to the audit of past projects, members of Vanick's development team underwent rigorous certification testing in application development, SharePoint, and other areas of Microsoft expertise.

"We value having a team of Microsoft certified developers in our custom solutions practice," John Thomas, Vanick's Director of Development said. "Vanick will continue to encourage members of the development team to expand their level of certification in the wide range of competencies offered by Microsoft."

Finally, Vanick had to provide Microsoft with feedback on past projects and client references to complete the gold-level certification. After multiple customers praised the firm's ability to assist with application development projects, Microsoft awarded Vanick with Gold Status in early May.
