Waltham, MA, December 20, 2011—MS Project Now!, a provider of customized, Microsoft-based project management services, solutions and training, today announced achievement of the Microsoft Project and Portfolio Management Silver Competency. In addition, MS Project Now! was selected to deliver two sessions at the premier Microsoft Project Conference 2012 in March, 2012. The conference is a Microsoft-led event for the project community.

To earn a Microsoft Silver Competency, partners must complete a set of tests to prove their level of technology expertise, submit customer references and employ a required number of Microsoft Certified Professionals who are skilled on current technology relevant for the competency. To be selected to speak at the well-attended Microsoft Project Conference, companies must demonstrate expertise in Project Server solutions and have delivered proven and current customer results.

“Achieving the Silver Competency for Project and Portfolio Management and selection as Conference session leaders are proof points of our expertise in delivering Microsoft Project Server services and solutions,” stated Daniel Bell, Managing Director of MS Project Now! “Earning Silver status puts us in the top 5% of Microsoft partners worldwide, a distinction we are proud to have attained.”

The MS Project Now! services and solutions help businesses improve profitability by aiding in project selection while enabling more effective and efficient project management.

“By achieving a Silver Competency, partners have proven themselves as specialized technology experts with the skills needed to best serve customers,” said Jon Roskill, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “The Silver Competency in the Microsoft Partner Network is designed to help customers identify services and solution providers that have demonstrated proof of their capability to deliver quality outcomes and customer satisfaction.”

The Microsoft Silver Competency defines partners’ success as trusted advisors within a specific technology competency, with each competency having a unique set of requirements and benefits formulated to accurately represent the specific skills and services that partners bring to the industry. Requirements for the Silver Competency are comparable to the formerly recognized Microsoft Certified Partner criteria.
