Microsoft has announced FRISS as a Gold Certified Partner. The development team, under the lead of Roos Tji (COO at FRISS), has made a great effort to achieve this certification. Gold Certified Partners represent the highest level of competence and expertise with Microsoft technologies, and have the closest working relationship with Microsoft. Gold Certified Partners are required to attain a large number of qualifying Partner Points. This qualification method recognizes each partner’s success in the marketplace, their commitment to Microsoft technologies, and provides the partners with resources and support such as priority listing in Microsoft directories, and other top-level benefits.
