Fast-growing VAR Centiq has joined the growing ranks of UK Microsoft Gold partners.
The Nottingham-based reseller, which specialises in IT consulting, architecture, design and implementation, has clinched Gold status with a competency in networking Infrastructure and OEM Hardware Solutions.
The award follows the Centiq's inclusion in this year’s Sunday Times Tech Track 100, which recognises the UK’s fastest growing technology outfits.
Richard Siddaway, Microsoft Practice Leader at Centiq, said, “We at Centiq are delighted to have attained Gold Certified status in the Microsoft Partner Programme.

Microsoft Gold Certified Partners, which have certified expertise and direct training and support from Microsoft, can build a positive customer experience with our technologies.
