Codify Awarded Gold Software Development Competency

Based in Aberdeen, Codify have become one of the first companies in the UK to achieve the Gold Software Development competency as part of Microsoft's new Partner Network. The introduction of the Microsoft Partner Network has seen a shift in the way partners are assessed in their skills compared to the old Microsoft Partner Program.

Partners are now encouraged to be more focused in their offering to ensure that they offer expert advice and service to their customers. The minimum number of Microsoft exams achieved by partners has risen to make it more challenging for a partner to achieve gold level. In addition, the annual Customer Survey is now mandatory to ensure that partner's claims are backed up by their customers.

Codify has specialised in custom software development for over 10 years, however, achieving the Gold competency was still not a walk in park as Mark Griffiths, Managing Director, explains, 'Achieving this competency so quickly is proof of our skill and experience in this area. Although we have been developing custom software for over 10 years, Microsoft really raised the bar with the introduction of the new network and we had to really prove our capabilities to gain the Gold competency. This is also reflected in the fact that we are currently only one of three companies in the UK to attain this.'

Codify specialise in creating custom database systems for the oil and gas industry including equipment rental, HSEQ, logistics and personnel systems.
