Palmetto Technology Group (PTG) Recognized as Microsoft Cloud Accelerate Partner

PTG also achieves Silver Competency Level in Collaboration and Portals

Greenville, SC – August 15, 2011 – Palmetto Technology Group (PTG), an outsourced IT support specialist company headquartered in SC, announced today their recognition and acceptance into the Microsoft Cloud Accelerate Program. PTG is one of the few Microsoft partners in the Southeast that is recognized as a Cloud Accelerate Partner.

As a Cloud Accelerate partner, PTG will have elite access to core benefits provided to members of the Microsoft Partner Network as well as to online sales and financial modeling tools, presales and technical support resources, specialized cloud training, and the Cloud Services roadmap. Additional benefits include the delegated administration consul which provides PTG with more effective tools to remotely administer online services’ subscriptions.

Todd Shultice, business development manager for Microsoft Online Services, commented, “With numerous reference accounts and more Microsoft Office 365 seats being added every day, PTG has demonstrated its commitment to the cloud. PTG is established in the market and is well educated on the products, services, and tools that accompany a transition to the cloud – in simple and complex environments.” He added, “We are excited to team with PTG as a Microsoft Cloud Accelerate Partner. They continue to take a proactive approach to technology and exceed our expectations.”

Reed Wilson, PTG president commented, “Businesses are beginning to recognize the financial and logistical benefits of working in the cloud. When a company can access all of its key software tools – like Microsoft Exchange Online, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Office Professional Plus, Microsoft Lync, and all of the apps that work with these tools – via a URL, this is an amazing story.”

To become eligible for the Cloud Accelerate program, PTG subscribes to the Microsoft Cloud Essentials Pack and has completed training and an assessment. In addition, PTG has seen triple digit cloud growth, transitioning both enterprise level as well as SMB accounts over the past 6 months.
