One Of A Few Microsoft Certified CRM Partners In Columbus, Ohio
Certification represents the highest level of competence and expertise with Microsoft technologies, and Affiliated was one of the first partners to achieve this designation in Central Ohio. Microsoft has a very strict accreditation process, and it is only through their certification exams and implementation analysis that partners must demonstrate advanced expertise in CRM, before they are awarded accreditation. Of the tens of thousands of Microsoft partners worldwide, less than 5% have earned Gold status; a credential we are proud to hold. Microsoft Gold Certification gives you added peace of mind, confident that the Affiliated team has the breadth and depth of knowledge to assure a successful implementation for your organization.
