Scunthorpe IT firm, HBP Systems, has continued to prove itself as one of the UK’s top IT companies by maintaining its prestigious Microsoft Gold Partner status for a successive 13thyear.
The accreditation is a testament to HBP’s Microsoft competencies which are standards set to help resellers meet their customers’ expectations. Currently, the IT provider has 3 Gold and 2 Silver Microsoft competencies. Additionally, HBP’s standards of customer service and the 30 Microsoft qualifications attained by its engineers, helpdesk staff and account managers, have also attributed to this significant industry achievement of 13-years.
Instrumental in managing the company’s relationship with Microsoft is HBP’s Operations Director, Tony Pearson, who recently received the Highly Commended Operational Leader Award at the renowned UK IT Industry Awards.
Tony says: “Gold is the highest partnership status that Microsoft offers, and it’s getting more challenging to attain every year. Achieving this means that HBP has been recognised for empowering our customers to be as secure, productive and flexible as possible through the Microsoft solutions we provide.”
As a Microsoft Gold Partner and a Microsoft Tier 1 Distributer, HBP deals directly with Microsoft which means if a customer has an urgent request, HBP can get the fastest solution for them whether they have a physical or Cloud solution.
Tony explains: “Our close working relationship with Microsoft saves our customers time, as we have an Advanced Support For Partners Agreement, guaranteeing us a set response time. This arrangement means that our team can provide our customers with the most proactive service possible, at a very competitive price.”
HBP’s IT engineers hold an additional 48 accreditations between them, which includes cybersecurity, telecoms and disaster recovery.
“Most importantly, this endorsement assures businesses that they can rely on HBP, as an experienced Microsoft provider, to modernise their infrastructures and deliver the best customer service while keeping downtime to a minimum.”
