  • (1888PressRelease) June 05, 2010 - Hong Kong - Datacraft Hong Kong has achieved Direct Large Account Reseller status from Microsoft and is the first Microsoft partner in the territory to offer the full services model of the software giant's solutions. The status reinforced Datacraft's strong relationship with Microsoft and underlined its exceptional level of expertise in Microsoft solutions.

    Direct Large Account Resellers (DLAR) are the only Microsoft partners who can place Microsoft volume license orders, such as Enterprise Agreement, Select, etc. to Microsoft directly, bypassing its local distributors. Datacraft Hong Kong was awarded the DLAR licence as a result of the demonstrated capability by Dimension Data, Datacraft's parent company, to add value to enterprise clients using the 'Full Services' model. 'Full services' is a platform to execute the full range of services, such as professional services, managed services, training services and software services to the clients.

    "This is a fantastic achievement for Datacraft and is testament to our longstanding and successful relationship with Microsoft over the years," said Francis Pang, General Manager for Datacraft Hong Kong. "By achieving this status, we are able to really maximise the full value of our client's software assets, offering them an unparalleled competitive edge."

    Wilson Wong, Partner Sales Director, Small and Midmarket Solutions & Partners, Microsoft Hong Kong Limited, said, "We value this new addition to Microsoft's DLAR and look forward to an even closer partnership with Datacraft. They have consistently demonstrated strong commitment and a high level of expertise in providing comprehensive solutions to local enterprises. In Hong Kong, Microsoft grows with the support of its large partner ecosystem, and we see great opportunities working with Datacraft in the years to come."

    Effective May 2010, Datacraft will provide its clients with the infrastructure and operational processes to ensure effective deployment, management, control and protection of the full suite of Microsoft's products. Datacraft's expertise in implementing software and licenses for a variety of complex architectures has also helped facilitate smarter purchasing decisions based on actual user experience. This will enable clients to optimise the use of their software assets, avoid legal, security and human resource issues, improve forecast of IT resource requirements and reduce software, compliance and licensing costs.

    In recognition of Datacraft's strong expertise in Microsoft solutions, Datacraft Hong Kong was recently awarded Best Microsoft System Integrator Partner of the Year 2009.
