FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Brave River Solutions
Brave River Solutions named Microsoft Certified Partner in Independent Software Veding/Solutions.
Warwick, RI (December 10, 2009)- Brave River Solutions furthered its growing status in the technology world by achieving recognition as a Microsoft Certified Partner in Independent software vending/solutions.
Partners are companies who have achieved a level of competency and utilization of Microsoft-based programs that is deemed extremely proficient. The achievement is not an easy one, as there are multiple requirements to become certified. Applying under the Independent Software Vendor/Software Solutions category, Brave River’s products developed on Microsoft platforms had to undergo numerous tests to determine competency. A company specializing in eBusiness, Brave River has developed a highly efficient content management system for websites and eCommerce storefronts. This Content Management System passed as an exemplary product created through Microsoft-based platforms, earning Brave River the status of a Microsoft Certified Partner and proving exemplary efficiency in development.
In 2007, the company decided to specialize in Microsoft development rather than splitting its focus in multiple development platforms. After the decision was made, all employees received extensive training in Microsoft development tools to round out their expertise and proficiency in the environment. While they are now a certified partner, this is merely the start of Brave River’s prospective recognition. The company is now headed for certification at the next and highest level of partnership, the Microsoft Gold Partner. “I am extremely proud of this company for reaching such a status with Microsoft, and this is just the beginning,” said Ernie Gaines, President of Brave River Solutions. “Given our achievements thus far, I see the Gold Partnership as an achievement well within our grasp and capability before the end of 2010.” To become a Gold Partner, the company must earn a total of 120 partner points.
