Cloud Solution Specialist Open Door Achieves New Microsoft Advanced Specialization

Summary: Open Door Technology attains new advanced Microsoft cloud specialization 

ALBERTA, CANADA — Adding to their Gold and Silver Microsoft Competencies list, Open Door Technology announces today that they have achieved the Small and Midsized Business Management Advanced Specialization.  

By achieving this Advanced Specialization for the SMB market, Open Door demonstrates its ongoing commitment to helping businesses of all sizes make a move to the cloud. Thorough knowledge, extensive experience, and proven success in providing cloud-based services to small and medium businesses are the base requirements for this specialization.  

Partners who achieve this advanced specialization have already accomplished Gold in either (or both) Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions and Cloud Business Applications and are pursuing further excellence through technical enablement, training, and practice building.  

“We are the innovative cloud business application experts, and we focus on the small to mid-sized markets,” says Malcolm Roach, President of Open Door Technology. “We put a lot of time and effort into achieving Microsoft competencies because we know that’s the best way to demonstrate value to our customers while simultaneously ensuring we’re staying on top of the best ways to serve them. By accomplishing an Advanced Specialization, we create more opportunities to help our customers accomplish their goals and continue to push learning and innovation across our entire team.” 

This achievement comes while Microsoft is altering and extending the necessary requirements and making both competencies and advanced specializations harder to obtain.  

To meet these requirements, Open Door had to remain in good standing with their Gold Cloud Competencies and further demonstrate their expertise through a series of exams and customer engagements. Partners who earn an advanced specialization employ at minimum five individuals who have passed the Dynamics 365 Business Central Functional Consultant Associate certification and have, at minimum, ten related deployments with five or more monthly active users. Additionally, partners must have at least a 35% growth rate in new user acquisition over the previous 12-months and at least one offering on AppSource.  

“We are technical people, we are passionate about changing businesses, and we dedicate our offerings to the small and midmarket sectors,” says Christian Roach, Vice President at Open Door Technology. “We work towards the competencies and specializations as a manner of serving our customers and improving internal confidence in our solutions. Being recognized by Microsoft is a nice benefit of the work we do to stay at the forefront of technology advancements, but truly, we work toward certifying with exams to be certain that our team provides the best possible service to every engagement. We enjoy the challenges presented by Microsoft in reaching these achievements because we believe it makes us a better business technology partner who can deliver on their promises more effectively. Our achievements are really our customers’ achievements.” 

With four Gold competencies in ERP, Application Development, and Cloud Solutions with an additional two Silver competencies in Cloud Platform and Data Analytics, Open Door adds this Advanced Specialization to their extensive roster of Microsoft certifications. This achievement further demonstrates their unique, focused ability to provide the SMB market with appropriate, effective, cloud-based solutions that help them grow and meet their business goals.
