LouGeek has earned the Microsoft Solutions Partner for Modern Work designation, demonstrating expertise in M365, Windows 11, and Microsoft Teams.

In March 2022, Microsoft announced that the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) programs would evolve into the Microsoft Cloud Partner Program to meet the changing needs of its customers and partners.

The primary goal of the new program is to better match prospective and existing Microsoft customers with Microsoft partners who have the right skills and capabilities to meet their needs. Microsoft created six designations (below) to allow partners to differentiate themselves in a crowded market.

Microsoft Cloud Partner Designations

  1. Solutions partner for Security
  2. Solutions partner for Modern Work
  3. Solutions partner for Business Applications
  4. Solutions partner for Data and AI (Azure)
  5. Solutions partner for Infrastructure (Azure)
  6. Solutions partner for Digital and App Innovation (Azure)

In order for partners to attain a designation, they must earn a minimum of 70 points out of 100. Success is measured by customer success, skilling, and performance.

An example of what partners must achieve before attaining one of their six designations.

Recently, LouGeek achieved its first designation for Microsoft’s Modern Workplatform, including Microsoft 365, Windows 11, and Microsoft Teams. The Solutions Partner designation is an honor bestowed upon Microsoft partners who have demonstrated proficiency in Microsoft technologies and a consistent track record of delivering high-quality solutions and services to clients.

For nearly two decades, LouGeek has shown a profound understanding of Microsoft’s platform, and we are equipped to help you plan, deploy, and manage Microsoft 365 to meet the specific needs of your environment and maximize the return on your Microsoft investment.

Microsoft 365 is a comprehensive set of tools for the hybrid work environment. When fully utilized, you can expect:

Improved Security: Over 90% of attacks begin with email. M365 goes beyond a basic spam filter with advanced anti-phishing and anti-malware technologies that protect your end-users and sensitive data. It also enhances your security beyond the realm of email.

Increased Productivity: M365 solutions like Teams, SharePoint, OneDrive, can help boost productivity and collaboration for both in-office and remote workers. Grow your business and stay secure while doing so.

The Solutions Partner for Modern Work designation is new, and we’re proud to be one of the few businesses who received it in such a short amount of time. We’re currently working on fulfilling the requirements to become a Solutions Partner for Security, which is given to partners who demonstrate expertise in M365 security and compliance, Azure Security Center, and other Microsoft security solutions. We aim to help clients achieve enhanced security, improved compliance, and tailored solutions for their environment and industry. We’re hoping to announce our designation in this solution area soon.
