Axonom demonstrates the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

Minneapolis, MN— November 30, 2010 Axonom, a leading provider of Partner Portal and Configure, Price, Quote software for Microsoft Dynamics CRM, has announced that it has achieved the Gold competency for Customer Relationship Management (CRM) in the new Microsoft Partner Network.

The new Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) accreditations are much more stringent than the previous Microsoft Gold Partner status and promises to better represent organizations who have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment within a specific business solution area.

Where previously the Gold Partner status reflected an overall capability, the new approach enables Microsoft partners to more clearly differentiate their business capabilities and areas of specialization. Partners who earn Gold or Silver competency accreditation can display the new partner logo that shows their specific areas of expertise.

“Microsoft’s partners are the secret behind our success, and we created the Microsoft Partner Network to help them achieve their business needs and drive deeper customer satisfaction,” said Jon Roskill, corporate vice president of the Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft.

Although Microsoft partners have up to 12 months to meet the new criteria, Axonom met their objective in achieving the Gold competency weeks after the program was launched.

"The new gold competency signals that Axonom demonstrated a significant level of industry experience providing services, software, and support for Microsoft Dynamics CRM," said Mike Belongie, COO at Axonom. "It also indicates that we have a solid customer base, our staff is highly trained, and our product (Powertrak) is reliable, experienced, and endorsed by Microsoft."
