As a Gold Certified Partner, AccTech has demonstrated expertise with Microsoft technologies and proven ability to meet customers’ needs. Microsoft Gold Certified Partners receive a rich set of benefits, including specialised access to training and support, giving them a competitive advantage in the channel.

“It has only been six weeks since we’ve joined Microsoft’s partner programme and we are very proud to have received Gold partner status in such a short period of time,” says Tertius Zitzke, Managing Director of AccTech Systems. The certification allows us to clearly promote our expertise and relationship with Microsoft to our customers. “The benefits provided through our Gold Certified Partner status will allow us to continue to enhance the offerings that we provide for customers.”

“Customers are looking for partner companies that can bridge the gap between their business demands and technology capabilities,” said Belinda Godfrey, Small and Mid-market Solutions and Partner Group director at Microsoft South Africa. “They need to trust in a company that can act as an expert adviser for their long-term strategic technology plans. Microsoft Gold Certified Partners, which have certified expertise and direct training and support from Microsoft, can build a positive customer experience with our technologies.
