Microsoft invites NORRIQ into “Inner Circle”, the absolute top of strategic partners

NORRIQ was designated as one of Microsoft’s globally most important partners yesterday and was invited into the ultimate inner circle of strategic partners, Microsoft Dynamics Inner Circle and President’s Club.

During a ceremony on Monday afternoon, local time, at Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC 2014), held in Washington, D.C., NORRIQ was honoured by Microsoft’s senior management and invited into the ultimate inner circle of strategic partners, Microsoft Dynamics Inner Circle and President’s Club.

There are only a handful of Microsoft’s partners worldwide who manage to get selected to the Inner Circle and President’s Club, and the members are regarded by Microsoft as the ultimate elite among its global partner network.

”We are proud of having achieved this for the fifth time. There are only a handful of Microsoft’s partners worldwide who are selected to the Inner Circle and President’s Club – and, therefore, being selected is a clear recognition on the part of Microsoft”, says NORRIQ’s CEO Bo Martinsen.

The criteria for being invited to the Microsoft Dynamics Inner Circle and President’s Club are that the partner has achieved a number of commercial objectives, reached a high level of customer satisfaction and created new innovative products and solutions.

”This recognition is a result of how we have succeeded in achieving a number of commercial milestones in the group. It is also great to see that Microsoft’s top management recognises our focus on customer satisfaction and that the new solutions we continuously launch in the market have been noted”, Bo Martinsen continues.

The membership in the Microsoft Dynamics Inner Circle and President’s Club means that NORRIQ and Microsoft are cementing their already close relations – and this benefits the customers: ”We had very close relations with Microsoft over the years. We are closely involved in the product development and often sit at the table when the future roadmap for the Microsoft Dynamics solutions is discussed. This gives our customers a huge advantage as we often succeed in influencing the development strategies in a direction favourable to them”, says Bo Martinsen.
