Mandator - Appointed to be Microsoft Recommended Certified Partner

Of Microsoft's 965 partners in Sweden, Mandator is one of a select few to obtain the status of Recommended Microsoft Certified Partner.

When selecting its annual list of Recommended Partners, Microsoft looks at criteria such as competence, customer base, presence on the market, technical prowess, number of employees and financial business ratios.

"Appointing our Recommended Partners is an exacting process based on a number of business ratios, which allows only the most qualified rise to the top. It is extremely important to recognize these partners in order to maximize return on customer investments," says Emanuel Higwall, Business Productivity Partner Manager, Enterprise Partner Group at Microsoft.

Customers of a Recommended Microsoft Certified Partner obtain advantages such as better support and solution quality assurance, greater focus from Microsoft, help with staffing for cutting edge projects and opportunities to visit Redmond and Microsoft's Executive Briefing Center.

Mandator is both a Recommended Microsoft Certified Partner and a Microsoft Project Solution Provider. Another area where Mandator has shown its strength with regards to Microsoft technology is mobility, as an exhibitor at the Mobility2Day event together with Microsoft and Telia, April 2003. Moreover, Mandator has been a Microsoft launch partner in the launch of Windows Server 2003 at Hovet in Stockholm, May 2003, and will be a Microsoft launch partner at the launch of Exchange Server 2003 at Networks Telecom 2003 in Stockholm, September 2003.
