rong>Radix Controls Earns Distinction through Demonstrated Technology Success and Customer Commitment
(Oldcastle, Ontario)  Radix Controls announced that it has achieved a Silver Independent Software Vendor Competency in the Microsoft Partner Network, demonstrating its ability to meet Microsoft customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment. To earn a Microsoft Silver Competency, partners must complete a set of tests to prove their level of technology expertise, submit customer references and employ or contract required number of Microsoft Certified Professionals who are skilled on current technology relevant for the competency.

Radix Controls provides design, programming, products & support for traceability solutions, vision-based robot guidance, quality control and automation for manufacturing which include vision, robotics, controls & custom software.  To obtain a Microsoft Silver Competency, Radix Controls submitted their Link2Logic web based application for testing. Link2Logic provides complete program management and recovery for up to 1000 devices and system back ups with only a couple of clicks.  Link2Logic is a new and improved version of Radix Control’s successful File Management System application which has been successfully deployed in manufacturing plants across North America. 

“This Silver Competency showcases our expertise in today’s technology market and demonstrates our knowledge of Microsoft and their products,” said Ross Rawlings, President & CEO of Radix Controls. “With Link2Logic we are able to give control & assurance to manufacturers that their plant devices will continue production with the security of recovering back-up and other related files in case of system failure, giving them the advantage of reduced down time and costs”

“By achieving a Silver Competency, partners have proven themselves as specialized technology experts with the skills needed to best serve customers,” said Jon Roskill, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “The Silver Competency in the Microsoft Partner Network is designed to help customers identify services and solution providers that have demonstrated proof of their capability to deliver quality outcomes and customer satisfaction.”

The Microsoft Silver Competency defines partners’ success as technology market leaders within a specific technology competency, with each competency having a unique set of requirements and benefits formulated to accurately represent the specific skills and services that partners bring to the industry.  Requirements for the Silver Competency are comparable to the formerly recognized Microsoft Certified Partner criteria. All 28 Microsoft technology competencies differentiate a partner’s specific technology capabilities, helping customers find qualified solution providers with expertise in discrete areas quickly and easily. Through the Microsoft Independent Software Vendor (ISV)/Software competency, you can gain access to the latest technology, market opportunities, and sales and marketing resources that have been specifically created with ISVs in mind. From planning the development cycle to supporting your customers, you will have the tools and resources you need to build innovative solutions and bring them to market.
