Competencies verified through extensive testing | Improved support services thanks to Microsoft network access | Access to current application development licenses for Visual Studio
Sassenberg, June 28, 2018 – gds GmbH and its subsidiary, Ovidius, are Silver Microsoft Application Development Partners, effective immediately. Developers at both companies had to put their extensive competencies in their fields successfully to the test to obtain certification. Customers of gds Group, a full-service provider of technical documentation services, will benefit from further improved support services.
“The distinction of Silver Application Development Partner provides verification that our customers receive efficient solutions that are in line with current state-of-the-art technology,” says Christian Paul, Head of Software and Solutions at gds GmbH. With this certification both companies have access to the latest Microsoft Visual Studio licenses for application development. “This helps us to further advance our standard products like docuglobe, XR and authordesk,” explained Christian Paul.
Ovidius and gds GmbH also benefit from valuable resources concerning their support services through the partnership with Microsoft that would not be available to them otherwise. Silver Partners can fall back on Microsoft’s support service experts in the case of an emergency to fully assist in the solution-finding process with profound technical knowledge concerning individual applications. To this end, the customers of gds Group stand to benefit the most.
For the distinction of a Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP), developers at Ovidius and gds GmbH had to prove their competencies regarding the use of Visual Studio as well as their capability of thinking out of the box. This included the successful completion of a comprehensive test. Microsoft also requests verification of reference companies where gds Group software products are currently in use. gds Group has also met this requirement.
