IBS continues to broaden technical base with Microsoft Gold Certified Partner status

Press Release

Stockholm, Sweden, May 7 2010 - International Business Systems (STO: IBS B), the leading application supplier for wholesale and distribution, has today announced that it has been awarded the Gold Certified Partner status by Microsoft. The accreditation is the latest step by IBS to broaden its technical base and offer products which utilise the latest platforms and technologies from across the market.

“The Gold Certified Partner accreditation is a reflection of our proficiency in using different software platforms to best solve our clients’ business problems,” said Andy Bailey, Chief Marketing Officer, IBS. “There is a perception that IBS develops software applications solely for use on IBM iSeries, which is simply not the case. This announcement dispels that myth and demonstrates IBS versatility in delivering world-class solutions on a variety of platforms including those from Microsoft.”

IBS achieved the Gold Certified Partner accreditation through its IBS Integrator product suite, which was awarded with Microsoft’s ISV/Software Solutions Competency. IBS Integrator, part of the IBS Enterprise Distribution Management suite, is IBS’s integration middleware platform. It is based on an open, flexible, service-based architecture that simplifies integration and synchronization of business critical applications like IBS Enterprise 6.0, databases, devices and legacy code, whether inside or outside the business.
