Manchester-based scientific software company, GdoelTech, has made a significant leap closer to securing Microsoft’s prestigious Gold Certified status by gaining two new competencies under the scheme – putting the company on track to clinch the full award by the end of 2007.

GodelTech, which only joined the scheme in February 2007, has now been rewarded for its work in Custom Development Solutions, Data Management Solutions and Mobility Solutions.

GodelTech director, Ray Bird, said: “Being recognised as a Microsoft Partner is already helping us in business because customers instantly know our projects are developed by people who are trained to the highest standards in the latest technologies and can offer consistently high quality and sophisticated software solutions.

“We’re delighted to have reached this stage so quickly and are confident of becoming a full Microsoft Gold Certified Partner within the next three months.”
