KPMG Crimsonwing achieve Microsoft Dynamics AX certified software advisor program requirements

In November 2012, KPMG Crimsonwing had the pleasure to announce the successfulrenewal of our Microsoft Gold certifications. Today, the company is proud to announce its latest Microsoft Partnership achievement and confirm that they have completed the Dynamics Certified Software Advisor (CSA) Program for on-Premise Solutions.

Developed internally by Microsoft, this program adds an additional training and revenue threshold to the basic Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) competency, and allows partners to demonstrate that they possess the resources and skills to manage and deliver the largest projects successfully.

To qualify for this accreditation, partners are required to employ 15 additional professionals accredited with the latest AX 2012 technical exams, on top of the resources initially required to achieve the ERP Gold competency. This way, Microsoft can feel confident to recommend their customers with the most suitable partner for their project.

KPMG Crimsonwing is one of the first Microsoft partners in the Microsoft global network to have completed this enhanced level of competency. This achievement will give the company a greater chance to demonstrate its ambition and capabilities, especially for large businesses for which the availability of AX under Enterprise Agreements represents a huge new opportunity. This is even truer with the shipment of AX 2012, the product itself now having the capability required by enterprise customers: the large companies qualifying to purchase under Microsoft’s Enterprise Agreement have complex needs that drive large, multifaceted projects that often span multiple sites.

In order to ensure customers’ long term satisfaction, Microsoft now have a better visibility of the partners that have the capabilities required to address such complex requirements. In the context of Microsoft’s Enterprise Agreement, this program enables companies to switch to Microsoft Dynamics AX with a double safety net: the confidence that their partners have all the capabilities required to successfully manage their project, and the reassurance of Microsoft’s guaranteed support.

KPMG Crimsonwing’s Dynamics Solutions Director, Jaap Schram de Jong says “KPMG Crimsonwing is delighted to have achieved such an essential milestone in our global strategy as Microsoft partners and are looking forward to strengthening the support we can provide Microsoft in their efforts to provide the best services in the market”.
