Rockville, MD -- October 16, 2007 - PAS, a global professional services firm specializing in hotel back office operations with financial, managed hosting and IT infrastructure outsourcing solutions, announced it has achieved Gold Certified Partner status in the Microsoft Partner program with competencies in Networking Infrastructure Solutions, Advanced Infrastructure Solutions for Hosting, and ISV/Software Solutions certifications.  

As a Gold Certified Partner, PAS has demonstrated the highest level of competency and expertise with Microsoft technologies, and proven its ability to meet clients’ needs. Microsoft Gold Certified Partners have the closest working relationship with Microsoft, including access, training and support giving them a competitive advantage to meet clients’ Microsoft technology needs.

"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. Microsoft Gold Certified Partners, which have certified expertise and direct training and support from Microsoft, can build a positive customer experience with our technologies.”

The Advanced Infrastructure Solutions Competency is designed for partners with proven expertise in designing and/or implementing complex infrastructure solutions such as Active Directory®- and Microsoft Host Integration Server-based design and deployment solutions, and Microsoft Exchange Server migration or deployment solutions. Because customers are increasingly asking to do more with less, partners with the Advanced Infrastructure Solutions Competency can identify their unique skill in helping customer’s access management solutions, improve operational efficiency and reduce security risks. Networking Infrastructure Solutions Competency is designed for technology partners who have proven their proficiency in implementing infrastructure solutions based on Microsoft Windows Server 2000 or Windows Server 2003 Operating Systems.

The Microsoft ISV/Software Solutions Competency recognizes the skill and focus partners bring to a particular solution set.  Microsoft Gold Certified partners that have obtained this competency have a successful track record of developing and marketing packaged software based on Microsoft technologies. PAS has developed and markets an Extract, Transfer and Load (ETL) tool for automating the transfer of data between disparate systems.
