SYDNEY, NSW, Australia — 30 August 2016 Adept Business Systems today announced it has achieved a silver Cloud Platform competency, demonstrating its ability to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s mobile-first, cloud-first world. To earn a Microsoft silver competency, partners must successfully demonstrate expertise through rigorous exams, culminating in Microsoft certifications. And to ensure the highest quality of services, Microsoft requires customer references for successful implementation and customer satisfaction.

Adept’s business solutions in the cloud include vertical applications aimed at the commercial real estate market. Brokerages in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom use Adept’s Surga Central SaaS application to market, lease and sell commercial property and to engage with speed and precision with owners, investors and tenants. Adept also offers a cloud-based property inspection application that is used by field-based property managers to ensure buildings are maintained at optimum safety and service levels.

 “Cloud computing is at the forefront of technology,” said Steve Clark, CEO of Adept.  “This Microsoft silver Cloud Platform competency showcases our expertise in this key technology,” added Clark.

“By achieving a silver competency, these organizations have proven their commitment and expertise in specific technology areas, which places them among a small percentage of Microsoft partners worldwide,” said Gavriella Schuster, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “For customers looking for a partner to help meet their unique business needs, choosing a company that has attained Microsoft competencies is a smart move. These organizations have highly qualified experts with access to Microsoft technical support and product teams.”

 The Microsoft Partner Network helps partners strengthen their capabilities to showcase leadership in the marketplace on the latest technology, to better serve customers and to easily connect with one of the most active, diverse networks in the world.
