CALGARY and DENVER (January 9, 2014) — Long View’s latest Microsoft Licensing coup has reaffirmed a strong historical partnership . . . and it also hints at a very bright future.
On Dec. 18, Microsoft announced that Long View (longviewsystems.com), one of North America’s foremost providers in IT consulting, outsourcing solutions, and cloud services, has again been selected as a Microsoft Licensing Solution Provider (LSP) moving forward — an achievement that will continue to position Long View as a trusted partner of the international software giant.
The announcement is also extremely significant for the future, says Long View’s Chief Executive Officer Gord Mawhinney, in the transformational age of cloud.
“Being a Microsoft Licensing Solutions Provider is an important element of our ability to reduce complexity, while also ensuring greater alignment around successful adoption and integration of Microsoft technology in their environments,” says Mawhinney.
“Long View is one of the few organizations that is a Systems Integrator, an LSP, and a Surface authorized provider,” he adds. “As more organizations look to take advantage of Microsoft’s investment in services and devices, we have a unique ability — specifically, providing expertise across all areas.”
Long View’s historical relationship with Microsoft demonstrates its profile as a true industry leader in managing its clients’ software compliance, assets, needs, and more.
Long View has enjoyed Microsoft Licensing Solution Provider (LSP) status — formerly known as Large Account Reseller (LAR) status — for several years, and has been a multitime winner of a Microsoft LAR Partner of the Year award.
And in October 2012, Long View was chosen from a North America-wide field of top Microsoft partners in winning the 2012 Microsoft Licensing Platinum Level Operational Excellence Award — not the first time Long View was recognized by Microsoft for operational excellence.
Microsoft’s move to Office 365 and Azure represents the beginning of a long-term service delivery shift. Long View shares a vision of this future by understanding the opportunities that will be available to its clients, says Bill Evelyn, Long View’s Microsoft Practice Director.
“With the advent of new devices, cloud services, and business models, we’ll be in step with Microsoft,” says Evelyn, “innovating together for our clients on the ways that technology can inspire and transform business.”
