Orient Software Attains Microsoft Gold Software Development Competency, Strengthens Participation in Microsoft Partner Network

**HCMC, Vietnam, October 2, 2012 **– Orient Software Development Corporation, the leading software outsourcing company in Vietnam, recently announced that it has attained the Gold Software Development competency in the Microsoft Partner Network. The prestigious credential demonstrates the company’s expertise in developing solutions that leverage the Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 development system to create the best path from customer ideas to business impact through software solutions that meet market needs.

“Our talented IT professionals hold certifications in Microsoft Certified Professional Developer, Microsoft Certified IT Professional and many other programming languages and software development methodologies, but the Gold Software Development competency we have attained truly demonstrates the high level of skill among our employees, as well as our success in developing and implementing powerful solutions for our clients,” says Nhung Nguyen, Managing Director of Orient Software. “Attaining the Gold Software Development competency was the next logical step in our company’s growth as we continue to reach out to a larger, more global client base.”

The Gold Software Development competency is awarded only to those companies that have demonstrated their ability to showcase best-in-class solutions that have undergone a rigorous and auditable approval process. Recipients must also demonstrate their ability to meet Microsoft customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment.

Tuan Ho, Project Director notes that having attained the Gold Software Development competency will give Orient Software access to more of the training opportunities, resources, and other forms of support that are available only to members of the Microsoft Partner Network that are delivering products and services based on the Microsoft platform. “These additional resources will help us deliver even better business solutions to our clients, ensuring that they continue to have a superior experience with Orient Software and the software-based solutions we deliver,” says Mr. Ho. “This is an important milestone in our efforts to continuously improve our products and services and be able to provide the expertise that our international clients are demanding.”

To attain the Microsoft Gold Software Development competency, Orient Software completed a set of rigorous tests in order to demonstrate its high level of technological expertise. The company also had to document that a certain number of the senior programmers of Orient Software have demonstrated their high qualifications in the software development field by becoming Microsoft Certified Professionals.

In addition, Orient Software was required to submit five unique customer references that feature the implementation, deployment, customization, or maintenance of .NET Framework or Visual Studio 2010. To maintain its Gold competency credential, Orient Software will participate in an annual survey and submit additional customer references to Microsoft to demonstrate the company’s ongoing commitment to superior customer satisfaction.

“As a company, we felt extremely well prepared to pursue the Gold Software Development competency, because we were confident of the exceptional quality of the solutions we provide,” explains Ms. Nhung Nguyen. Conexus AG, Crooze and many other companies around the world submitted glowing references to Microsoft in support of our efforts, praising our team members’ work in delivering best-of-class software solutions that truly meet their business needs.”
