As part of its efforts to deliver five-star service for its clients, Aclaro joined the Microsoft Partner Network, allowing the company to continue building its business by leveraging the power of Microsoft products.
Microsoft Partner Network: The Basics
The Microsoft Partner Network, if you are not yet familiar, was designed to make resources available to a wide range of technology companies (like Aclaro) so that those companies can build their businesses with Microsoft technologies.
It works with businesses around the world in three key areas. Those three areas are: driving digital transformation, building pivotal relationships, and scaling those businesses. As for driving digital transformation, Microsoft helps businesses like Aclaro leverage cloud computing to better serve customers. In terms of building pivotal relationships, Microsoft acts as a matchmaker, sending millions of referrals to its partners each and every year. Finally, Microsoft helps its partners scale their businesses not only through the first two areas, but by allowing partners to work with more than 3,500 field employees and to leverage new resources offered by Microsoft.
Practically speaking, the Microsoft Partner Network helps promising tech companies not only build their product, but helps them leverage an existing community to overcome any scaling issues. This community and support, in turn, provides a better experience for customers of these tech startups. In order to leverage the benefits of the Microsoft Partner Network, companies must submit an application. Upon being selected, companies can begin leveraging all of the benefits within the network.
