IDI Billing Solutions Achieves Gold Status in the Microsoft Partner Network

Provides best-in-class market leadership through technology expertise and customer commitment

VICTOR, N.Y. (August  8, 2013) — IDI Billing Solutions (IDI), a leading developer of billing, rating, order management, workflow and selling solutions for the telecommunications industry, is pleased to announce that it has been recognized with a Gold competency in Hosting in the Microsoft Partner Network.  IDI has been a member of the Microsoft Partner Program since 1998 and has achieved gold-level status for the eleventh year in a row.

IDI’s hosting competency is one of the specialized areas of technology expertise recognized by the Microsoft Partner Network.  The gold designation demonstrates IDI’s “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meeting Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment.  As a gold-level partner, IDI distinguishes itself as being in the top 1 percent of Microsoft’s partner ecosystem.

“By achieving a gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology,” said Jon Roskill, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “These partners have a deep expertise that puts them in the top 1 percent of our partner ecosystem, and their proficiency will help customers drive innovative solutions on the latest Microsoft technology.”

“Being a Microsoft Gold partner is a significant achievement because it demonstrates our ability to leverage the latest to create solutions that deliver value to our customers.  By participating in the Microsoft Partner Network at the highest level, we have a strong foundation in place by which to continue evolving our Billing as a ServiceSM solution,” said Tim Wrona, vice president of marketing and product strategy at IDI. “Our customers depend on our Billing and OSS solution to help them remain highly competitive in the communications market.  Being a Microsoft Gold partner helps us meet that commitment.”

To earn a Microsoft gold competency, partners must successfully complete exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to prove their level of technology expertise, and then designate these certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. They also must submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects (along with implementing a yearly customer satisfaction study), meet a revenue commitment (for most gold competencies), and pass technology and/or sales assessments.
