Synigo Pulse is Microsoft Preferred Solution
In our partnership with Microsoft we had to go through a technical validation. Since this week it is an honor to be listed in AppSource as Microsoft Preferred Solution. It means a lot to Synigo as it recognizes our maturity.
A Microsoft preferred solution is a cloud application selected for its quality, performance, and ability to address customer needs in a certain industry vertical or solution area. A team of Microsoft experts validates solutions from partners with specific proven competencies and capabilities.
The technical validation consisted in testing Synigo Pulse and a review of its architecture. Core to Synigo Pulse's architecture are a set of sophisticated Azure services. Feel free to contact us in order to learn more about this, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Microsoft AppSource is the marketplace for business users. In AppSource business users can find, try and use line-of-business software from Microsoft and its partners. After a process of validation Synigo Pulse for Office 365 is listed and is available for trial. In this blog we explain the importance of AppSource to Synigo.
