Microsoft Gold and Microsoft Solutions Partner – The Difference


New Microsoft Partner Titles

At The HBP Group, we’ve been awarded the highest partner accolades from Microsoft for 13 years now. Up until recently, you might have known it as their Microsoft Gold Partner standard, but things have changed! As of this month, we are officially a Microsoft Solutions Partner. It’s the same high level of award; achieved because we meet Microsoft’s high standards for expertise, skill and ability to deliver Microsoft solutions – but with a different name.

The change is in line with last year’s launch of the Microsoft Cloud Partner Program. Alonsgide the new program, they introduced Solutions Partner designations – each anchored on the Microsoft Cloud in six solution areas: Business Applications, Data & AI (Azure), Digital App & Innovation (Azure), Infrastructure (Azure), Modern Work, and Security – providing a way for partners to demonstrate their proven capabilities and experience across performance, skilling, and customer success.

What does that mean for our customers?

Nothing about our expertise or approach has changed, just the name. It still means our team can demonstrate its ability to deliver successful projects, provide excellent customer service and stay up-to-date on the latest Microsoft technologies. Our expert teams are here the same as always, to help you make the most of your technology, save or make your business money and ensure that your teams and customers are as happy as they can be!

Our Operations Director Tony said: “We’re really pleased to have been given Microsoft’s highest partner accolade for another year. After its rebrand, our award this year is Microsoft Solutions Partner in Modern Work. It’s a testament to the constant progression of our teams, both in terms of skill and also our customer service – something we strive year-on-year to make better than the last.”

To become Microsoft Solutions Partner in Modern Work accredited we’ve demonstrated a broad capability to help customers boost their productivity and make the shift to hybrid work using Microsoft 365.
