Cranford, NJ – June 14, 2010 Paragon Solutions, a business and information technology consulting firm, announced today that it has been granted Microsoft Services Ready Certification Status after successful completion of the Microsoft Services Ready Program. Through the program, Paragon has received certification in Services Ready for SharePoint 2010 and is able to leverage planning architecture and implementation assets based on Microsoft best practices.

The Microsoft Services Ready program, granted to an exclusive number of Microsoft Gold Partners, allows Paragon complete access to guidelines, templates, field-tested engagement tools, and best practices developed by Microsoft Services in the areas of Portals, Collaboration, Search, Social Networking and Business Intelligence. The accreditation means that Paragon has the ability to extend its own expertise, methodologies, solutions and services to its clients, using Microsoft’s quality of service and product offerings.

“We are very pleased to add this credential to our Microsoft experience,” says Erik Raper, Senior Vice President Marketing & Advisory Services at Paragon Solutions. “Attaining Microsoft Services Partner Status allows Paragon to deliver the highest quality solutions through the repeatable application of proven offerings, while simultaneously strengthening our relationship with the Microsoft Services organization.” “We look forward to working further with Microsoft in the future.”

Launched in April 2009, the Microsoft Services Ready Program represents Microsoft’s ongoing commitment to the success of partners worldwide. The program streamlines the planning, development, and deployment of services, while cutting costs, reducing risk, and enhancing performance. Paragon’s Microsoft Services Ready status comes only a year after being awarded the Microsoft Gold Partner Award, which was achieved as a result of Paragon’s performance in Custom Software Development and Data Management Solutions in the areas of insurance, financial services, life sciences and communications.
