Stoneridge Software, a Minnesota-based business technology consulting firm, has attained membership in the elite 2018/2019 Inner Circle for Microsoft Business Applications. In business for less than six years, this is the first time Stoneridge Software has earned this status.
It is quite an honor to be named to Microsoft’s Inner Circle. With Stoneridge Software founders and many of our team members previously employed by Microsoft, we’ve always had a great connection to the company. But to get this kind of formal recognition from leadership is tremendous, said Eric Newell, Stoneridge Software CEO. To be included in the Inner Circle is an acknowledgment of our leadership in the industry and a track record of successful client delivery.
The Inner Circle is made up of Microsoft’s most successful ERP partners worldwide, representing top companies and strategically important partners in the Microsoft Dynamics network. Membership in this elite group is based on sales achievements that rank Stoneridge Software in the top echelon of the Microsoft’s Business Applications global network of partners. Inner Circle members have performed to a high standard of excellence by delivering valuable solutions that help organizations achieve increased success.
This recognition came during Microsoft Inspire, the annual premier partner event, which took place July 15-19, 2018, in Las Vegas. Microsoft Inspire provides the Microsoft partner community with the opportunity to learn about the company’s roadmap for the upcoming year, establish connections, share best practices, experience the latest product innovations and learn new skills.
“Each year we recognize Microsoft Business Applications partners from around the world for delivering innovation and driving unsurpassed customer success,” said Cecilia Flombaum, Senior Director, Microsoft, One Commercial Partner organization. “Our Inner Circle members are chosen based on their business performance as well as capabilities as an organization, whether that’s creating IP, developing solutions, or having an industry-leading focus on digital transformation. Microsoft is honored to recognize Stoneridge Software for their achievements this past year, their dedication to our customers, and their innovation around the Microsoft Cloud.”
The criteria to become part of the circle of the world’s most important Microsoft Dynamics partners are strict: in addition to a proof of expertise regarding standard products and modern digital platform technologies as well as above-average economic performance and stability, the focus is set on customers. Only the companies that get top grades for practical application are candidates to the Inner Circle.
The benefits of Inner Circle
“I want to thank Stoneridge Software for your deep commitment and devotion to your customers, as well as your commitment to business excellence,” said Cecilia Flombaum, Worldwide Business Applications Partner Lead at Microsoft. Customers likewise benefit from the membership of the Inner Circle: for example, the circle enables a regular exchange with key Microsoft decision makers. As a result, Stoneridge Software has a direct impact on the further development and strategic alignment of Microsoft Dynamics solutions, and the practical requirements of the joint customers become part of Microsoft’s product strategy. In return, Stoneridge Software gains access to Microsoft’s technological innovations to secure competitive advantages for its customers at an early stage.
2018/2019 Inner Circle members will gather at the Inner Circle Summit, taking place October 23-26, 2018, where they will have a unique opportunity to share strategy and network with Microsoft senior leaders and fellow partners.
