Gold Certified Partnership acknowledges KSS Fuels’ competencies for developing and delivering advanced customer solutions
Florham Park, NJ - March 31, 2011
KSS Fuels today announced that for the eighth consecutive year it has retained its Gold Certified Partnership with Microsoft and enhances its presence among an increasingly elite group of Microsoft partners.
Microsoft has introduced more stringent requirements for partners to attain Gold Certification, requiring companies such as KSS Fuels to extend their knowledge and experience of Microsoft technologies as a core part of their development, delivery and support capabilities. More than ever, Gold level certification acknowledges the highest level of competence and expertise with Microsoft technologies and represents the closest working relationship with Microsoft. Early access to the latest Microsoft technologies, exclusive technical assistance and participation in beta programs enables KSS Fuels to take advantage of appropriate developments for its fuel price management and optimization technology.
KSS Fuels, the first pricing technology and services company to attain this level of partnership seven years ago, develops pricing solutions that help fuel retailers and wholesalers streamline their pricing processes and set optimal fuel prices that enhance volume and margin performance while maintaining compliance with government regulations.
“Microsoft raising the bar to attain Gold certification has prompted us to further enhance our development skills and customer service capabilities. As such we are proud to have exceeded the requirements and continue to be recognized as a member of this elite group of partner companies, and to have the opportunity to deliver sophisticated and high value business solutions to our customers through very familiar and widely used office tools”, stated Bob Stein, president and chief executive officer of KSS Fuels.
Attaining Gold Certification requires Microsoft Partners to prove their skills by acquiring specific competencies, training their staff to qualify as Microsoft Certified Professionals and demonstrating customer satisfaction.
