ADNET Wins Regional Microsoft Contest
May 31, 2005
Windsor, CT May 24, 2005 – ADNET Technologies, Inc. announced today that it has been awarded Microsoft’s “Partner Award for Competency” for the New England region for the first quarter of 2005. ADNET was recognized for its development of a technology solution that demonstrated its expertise in Microsoft Active Directory and Exchange 2003.
The New England SMS&P and Enterprise teams make the awards quarterly to recognize outstanding achievements by companies participating in the Microsoft Partner Program. (ADNET is one of a select few companies in Connecticut to have achieved Microsoft Certified Gold status, the highest partner rating available. Only 1% of all Microsoft Partners are Gold Certified.)
ADNET’s winning case study described the design and execution of a plan to transition its client, a global leader in end-to-end customer solutions (sign making and specialty graphics, apparel and flexible materials, and ophthalmic lens processing industries), from a Windows NT 4.0 domain structure with Exchange 5.5 to Active Directory and Exchange 2003. As part of this process, the client company wanted to centralize as many IT services and resources as possible to reflect its new centralized IT model.
“ADNET works with clients every day to build robust network and messaging solutions,” ADNET President Ed Laprade said, “While we are delighted to have our work honored by Microsoft with this award, the greatest satisfaction comes from helping our client to achieve its corporate goals.”
He said that as a result of the ADNET strategy, the client was able to significantly reduce the number of servers in the environment and consolidate many of their resources. “Administration is much easier and the cost of maintaining the system has been significantly reduced,” he added. “In addition, valuable redundancy has been built into the system, and users can now access their email from a browser anywhere in the world.”
