Rainbow Spectria Joins Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Program

LONG BEACH, Calif., June 11, 2001 – Rainbow SpectriaSM, a leading eBusiness technology consulting firm, today announced its membership in the Microsoft(r) Gold Certified Partner Program. Rainbow Spectria, which provides eBusiness, wireless and security services, was named as a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner due to the company’s proven commitment and expertise in building and delivering solutions based on Microsoft technologies. As a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, Rainbow Spectria gains resources from Microsoft to further develop and deploy robust Microsoft solutions that provide a tangible return on investment for Rainbow Spectria’s eBusiness clients.

“Inclusion in the Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Program is a real asset to Rainbow Spectria,” said Luis Curet, vice president of sales and marketing, Rainbow Spectria. “As a member, we get early access to products, training curriculum and deployment blueprints developed by Microsoft. When our clients are ready to take advantage of the latest Microsoft solution, our technical consultants have already evaluated and tested these technologies, which lets us maximize our service capacity to the client.”

The Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Program provides a way for customers to identify companies that have proven their commitment and expertise in one or more specialized areas when delivering Microsoft technologies. Microsoft Certified Partners need to meet a higher set of criteria for each category, including enhanced certification and a portfolio of real-world customer references, and are thus identified as the most skilled partners in specific solution areas.

“Today’s pressures to build the best eCommerce solutions are critical to business success. These solutions need to be reliable yet deployed very quickly,” said Rosa Garcia, general manager of the Partner Programs Group at Microsoft Corp. “Microsoft recognizes that companies don’t want to choose a technology partner that needs to learn on the job – they need a partner with proven experience. Today, Microsoft recognizes Rainbow Spectria for documenting customer satisfaction with multiple eCommerce deployments. This distinction brings value to the Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Program and makes it clear that Rainbow Spectria has the skills and experience to provide high-quality e-commerce solutions using Microsoft technology.”
