Microsoft Announces New Small Business Specialist In San Francisco
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 25, 2005
Microsoft Corp. today announced TechSoEasy has become the first Small Business Specialist San Francisco that specializes exclusively in Small Business Server solutions for companies with less than 25 employees. To attain this new designation, TechSoEasy has demonstrated expertise in planning and building solutions for small businesses. As part of the Small Business Specialist Community, TechSoEasy will receive a rich set of benefits from Microsoft, including access to training specifically designed for the small-business industry,.
“TechSoEasy is extremely pleased with our status as a Small Business Specialist in San Francisco,” said Jeffrey B. Kane, principle of the TechSoEasy Microsoft practice, “For our small business clients, this special designation adds another aspect to our Microsoft Small Business Server solution practice and extends the value we bring to our client relationships in the Bay Area.”
The Small Business Specialist Community, available as a competency-like designation as part of the Microsoft® Partner Program, was developed in response to input from customers and partners that expressed a need to build easier connections that enable small-business customers to quickly and easily identify technology partners best suited to support them.
“Small businesses are looking for partner companies that understand their unique business needs,” said Jon Witty, Northern California Area General Manager, Microsoft Small and Midmarket Solutions & Partner Group. “With resources like the Small Business Specialist Community and the partner locator tool on the Microsoft Small Business Center Web site, it will be much easier for small businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area to identify local partners that are best able to address their specific needs. We are confident this offering will help TechSoEasy reach its full potential by creating more visibility, opportunity and demand in the local small-business segment.”
As one of the requirements for attaining Small Business Specialist status, Mr. Kane had to pass Microsoft’s Small Business Sales and Marketing Skills Assessment, designed to test the company’s knowledge of the dynamics and dependencies of the small-business market, as well as the value to small business of several software solutions, including Windows® XP Professional, Microsoft Office 2003 and Windows Small Business Server 2003. In addition, he also had to pass a certification exam that measures the ability to design and implement solutions for the small and medium-sized business by using Windows Small Business Server 2003 and the Windows Server System™.
The Small Business Specialist Community was announced earlier this month at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2005.
TechSoEasy, based in San Francisco, was founded in 2004 shortly after Microsoft released Small Business Server 2003 in order to help any small company of less than 25 employees realize their full potential.
Founded in 1975, Microsoft (Nasdaq “MSFT) is the worldwide leader in software, services and solutions that help people and businesses realize their full potential.
