i-mate Strikes Microsoft Gold

i-mate™, the specialist in Microsoft Windows Mobile devices and software applications, has been awarded Gold Certified status in the Microsoft Partner Program with a competency in Mobility Solutions. Microsoft Gold Certified Partners are chosen from selected Microsoft Business Partners who earn the highest customer endorsement.

Bruce Cockburn, Sales Director of Leaf Wireless, i-mate’s exclusive distributor for Africa, said “This is a ringing endorsement of the strength of i-mate’s commitment to, and success with, the Microsoft Mobile platforms, and we are delighted to see i-mate get this recognition.”

Jim Morrison, Chief Executive Officer of i-mate comments, “This award signifies two important developments for our business. The first is the high level of expertise in Windows Mobile solutions and customer support we currently offer clients – a direct result of our commitment to producing only Windows Mobile solutions. The second and most important is that having Gold Certified status means we will have unrivalled access to Microsoft in terms of support and new product releases. This can only enhance our business over the coming years as the use of Windows Mobile smartphones continues to gain mainstream popularity globally.”

Marianne Rolling, EMEA director for Windows Mobile and Embedded devices concurs: “Customers are looking for partner companies that can bridge the gap between their business demands and technology capabilities. They need to trust in someone that can act as an expert adviser for their long-term strategic technology plans.

“Microsoft Gold Certified Partners have certified expertise and benefit from direct training and support from Microsoft to build a positive customer experience with our technologies. Microsoft recognises i-mate as a new Gold Certified Partner for demonstrating its expertise in providing customer satisfaction with Microsoft products and technology.”
