Microsoft Gold Managed Partner

It pays to have friends in high places. When you partner with Directions Training, you have access to the highest level of Microsoft services and support. This is because Directions Training is a Microsoft Gold Managed Partner. As part of this elite network, Directions is authorized to provide technical support that other partners and training companies cannot.

A gold certification is not awarded to just any Microsoft vendor. Only companies that reach high standards of excellence have the opportunity to become Gold Managed Partners. Before achieving this status, companies must show an extensive portfolio of successful projects and prove that they have high volume, high-quality student feedback by using Microsoft’s “Metrics that Matter” tools. In addition, they need to use Microsoft as their primary technology platform, as well as offer a comprehensive list of technical support options like certification exams, state-of-the-art computer equipment, and advanced software capabilities.

Directions fulfills and exceeds the requirements set by Microsoft and has upheld its Gold Managed Partner status for several years. As a result, we are able to offer top-of-the-line services and support to companies, organizations, government entities, and individuals. In addition to our Microsoft partner status, we provide training for several other technology vendors as well. Some vendors include: Citrix, Cisco, VMware, CompTIA, Adobe, and more.

System Integrators (SIs)

It is no secret that end user adoption may be the single most important aspect of any technology migration. Organizations entertaining the idea of migrations recognize that their users must receive thorough training before they can feel comfortable using the new system to accomplish day-to-day business tasks. To decision makers, IT training can seem just as important as the technology itself.

System Integrators remain competitive by offering expert training in their migration and integration proposals. Unfortunately, not all SIs have time and resources to support adequate end user training, but this doesn’t stand in the way of those who want to land new projects and large accounts; driven System Integrators partner with Directions to provide exceptional end user training.

Directions Training sees the importance of coupling a system migration with comprehensive, custom fit training. In partnering with SIs, Directions ensures new system integrations and migrations are fully embraced by all end users.

Licensing Service Providers (LSPs)

Microsoft Software Assurance is a program that benefits Licensing Service Providers (LSPs) and their customers. Software Assurance Training Vouchers (SATVs) are known to increase customer satisfaction which may raise the chances of customers renewing their licenses and returning to their respective LSPs when new products are released. There is only one caveat to this plan: SATVs expire. When SATVs are not used, customers may never fully appreciate the capabilities of their Microsoft technologies.

All too often, LSPs are busy with other business matters and are unable to remind customers about the free training vouchers they received with their Microsoft licenses. For this reason, Directions Training partners with reputable LSPs in efforts to help them consolidate SATVs and provide customers with a trustworthy training source.

Directions strives to make sure that no training voucher ever expires. By reminding customers about free training opportunities and offering them authorized training, customer satisfaction increases and license renewal is likely.

Directions’ works hard to encourage customers to cash in their SATVs. When SATVs are used, LSPs can be incented for it. If an LSP refers a customer to Directions who then commits their vouchers to Directions Training, the LSP will receive a cash incentive.

If Software Assurance benefits are slipping through your customers’ hands, consider partnering with Directions Training. We provide services that encourage customers to utilize SATVs and training that empowers them to appreciate their Microsoft products.

To discuss partnership benefits and LSP onboarding requirements, contact or call us at toll-free 855.575.8900.
