Axonom Earns Distinction through Demonstrated Technology Success and Customer Commitment

MINNEAPOLIS, MN- February 12, 2013 Axonom, a leading provider of high-tech industry Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Partner Relationship Management (PRM) solutions for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011, today announced it has achieved a Gold CRM Competency in the Microsoft Partner Network, demonstrating its ability to meet Microsoft customers' evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment. To earn a Microsoft gold competency, organizations must complete a rigorous set of tests to prove their level of technology expertise, submit customer references and demonstrate their commitment to customer satisfaction by participating in an annual survey.

"A gold CRM competency differentiates us from the competition and establishes us as market leaders, further demonstrating our commitment to serving the needs of customers relying on Microsoft-based solutions," said Mike Belongie, COO at Axonom. "We look forward to helping our customers realize their full potential by continuing to focus our areas of technology expertise in response to today’s business needs."

The Microsoft gold competency signifies to the market that a company has demonstrated the highest level of skill and achievement within a given technology specialization. All of the Microsoft competencies are designed to help differentiate a partner’s specific technology capabilities, helping customers find solution providers quickly and easily. Each competency has a unique set of requirements and benefits, formulated to accurately represent the specific skills and services that partners bring to the industry. To achieve a competency, partners must demonstrate and maintain a significantly more rigorous set of requirements than are required for other competencies.

"The Microsoft Partner Network is designed to empower solution providers to succeed in today’s business environment. By achieving the prestigious gold competency, participating companies are provided with a rich set of benefits, including increased customer visibility and accessibility, training and support," said Jon Roskill, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp.
