Startel Achieves Microsoft Gold and Silver ISV Competencies

Startel Corporation announced it achieved Gold and a Silver Independent Software Vendor (ISV) competency from Microsoft Partner Network. Startel demonstrated its expertise with Microsoft technologies and ability to meet customers’ needs. This distinguishes Startel as among the top one percent of Microsoft Partners.

To earn a Microsoft Gold competency, partners must successfully complete exams to prove their level of technology expertise and then designate certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. In addition, gold competency partners must also submit customer references, implement a yearly customer satisfaction study and meet a revenue commitment. Startel’s enterprise communications solutions are built using Microsoft technologies, delivering greater efficiency and productivity gains to its customers.

“These Microsoft competencies showcase Startel’s expertise and commitment in today’s technology market and demonstrate our deep knowledge of Microsoft and its products,” said Bill Lane, president and CEO of Startel. “Our plan is to accelerate our customers’ success by serving as technology advisors for their business demands.” For more information, contact Rachel Sauerbrey at 949-863-8776 or visit
