Mandator becomes Microsoft Business Solutions Partner

Mandator appointed Microsoft Business Solutions Partner, thereby expanding its strategic alliance with Microsoft.

The new partnership status means that customers get a more complete and integrated Microsoft offering from the same supplier.

"This is a natural development of our successful collaboration with Microsoft," says Björn Sandström, Mandator's Microsoft Alliance Manager. "We can offer customers a greater selection of cost-effective solutions due to the fact that we supply standardised systems and products such as Microsoft Business Solutions CRM and Microsoft Business Solutions Axapta."
In addition to the Microsoft platform solutions already offered for advanced infrastructures, mobility, portals and project support, Mandator can now provide business system solutions. The goal for 2004 is to increase sales in Microsoft-related transactions by approximately 30% compared with 2003 (SEK 40 million). During the first quarter of 2004, such sales accounted for about SEK 15 million of the company's sales.

Mandator was previously appointed a Recommended Microsoft Certified Partner. Moreover, the company is also a Microsoft Project Solution Provider and a Microsoft Certified Business Solutions Partner. Mandator's areas of strength include mobility, and the company recently participated as an exhibitor at Mobility2day together with Microsoft and Telia. Furthermore, Mandator was a launch partner for Windows Server 2003 at Johanneshov in Stockholm and Exchange Server 2003 at Networks Telecom 2003 in Stockholm.
