Johnson City, TN (September 28th, 2006) - Saratoga Technologies, Inc. (www.saratogaus.com) today announced it has further differentiated itself by earning the Small Business Specialist designation under the Microsoft Partner Program.
“Saratoga is committed to providing this region with the highest levels of service and support available anywhere in the world,” said David Temple, president of Saratoga. “This is further evidence that businesses in East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia no longer have to go outside of our local market in order to obtain top tier technology services.”
“Microsoft is committed to helping small businesses around the world be more efficient and better serve their customers through the use of technology,” said Steve Guggenheimer, vice president of small business for the Small and Midmarket Solutions & Partner Group at Microsoft. “Microsoft offers solutions that have been custom-made for small businesses, like Windows® Small Business Server 2003. Now we’re taking another step, this time with our partners, to help better serve this important customer segment. With resources like the partner locator tool in the Microsoft Small Business Center site and the Small Business Specialist Community, we’ll make it much easier for the 41 million small businesses around the world to identify those partners in Microsoft’s network that are best able to address their specific needs.”
