    Mount Prospect, Ill. – September 3rd, 2018

    Crestwood Associates has recently achieved its second Gold Competency from Microsoft, this time for the “Crestwood Cloud” hosted platform, running on Azure. Gold partners need to meet a set of strict requirements including demonstrating cloud platform knowledge through competency exams, submitting customer deployment references, meeting minimum sales volume targets, and more. Crestwood has held a Microsoft Gold competency in Enterprise Resource Planning for 18 years.

    “It’s thrilling how quickly we were able to meet the requirements for gold status in cloud hosting,” says Tim Thompson, Partner at Crestwood Associates. “It’s a relatively new feature for us, and most of our Dynamics customers are very eager to make the switch to the Cloud. They trust our associates to guide them through the process.”

    IDC reports that spending on cloud-based IT infrastructure is expected to grow year-over-year, while spending on “traditional, non-cloud” is declining for another consecutive year.

    Crestwood offers a variety of cloud subscriptions to match business needs. These include our full feature Crestwood Cloud, the Small Business Edition Crestwood Cloud, backup services, and Microsoft Office 365.  With various price points to match usage, all which include monitoring, security, updates, and more, Crestwood has helped hundreds of customers save money while moving their systems to the cloud.
