As a Gold Certified Partner, UBS has demonstrated expertise in Microsoft technologies and a proven ability to meet customers’ needs.


The Gold Certified Partner Status, awarded to just four percent of all Microsoft Partners, represents the highest level of technical expertise, strategic thinking, and hands-on skills.  Unified Business Solutions is one of a few Gold Certified Partners that specializes in Microsoft Business Solutions and Business Intelligence competencies as well as Microsoft SharePoint and collaboration web services.  The Microsoft Business Solutions Competency is designed for partners with proven expertise in designing and/or implementing enterprise resource planning (ERP), material resource planning (MRP), and customer relationship management (CRM) capabilities using Microsoft’s financial, CRM and supply chain management solutions.  Microsoft Business Solutions Partners have capitalized on this opportunity to help organizations develop and build integrated ERP/MRP and CRM solutions around Microsoft technology. The Microsoft Business Solutions Competency allows partners to identify their unique, proven proficiency in deploying applications based on Microsoft’s financial, CRM and supply chain management solutions.

The Business Intelligence Competency is designed for partners that specialize in Microsoft Business Intelligence Platform and Performance Management. These partners are fully equipped to help customers leverage the data they’re already collecting to build more-effective business strategies. For customers, accurate business intelligence often equals a competitive advantage, which is why robust business-intelligence solutions are always in demand.

 “Customers are looking for partner companies that can bridge the gap between their business demands and technology capabilities,” said Allison Watson, Vice President of the Worldwide Partner Sales and Marketing Group at Microsoft Corp. “They need to trust in a company that can act as an expert adviser for their long-term strategic technology plans.
