Microsoft.

Award-winning Gold Certified Windows Phone and Microsoft Azure partners.

As a platform, the Windows offering is tried and tested. Our familiarity with Microsoft products extends twenty years with the launch of Windows 95, bringing home computing to a mainstream audience. Even within a highly competitive market, Microsoft have remained at the forefront of technology. Releasing products that help businesses function every single day. The platform is one that’s easy to use, with Microsoft products never overpowering the user.

Microsoft Gold Certified partners.

Our relationship with Microsoft as a Gold Certified partner goes back to 2008. Partners are rewarded based on competencies that align with Microsoft’s offering. We‘ve received a Gold Application competency which positions us amongst the best in the world at this level. We’ve also been awarded a Silver Cloud Platform competency, demonstrating our commitment to the Azure Cloud services. In addition, we hold a Silver Collaboration and Content competency, showcasing skills in the development, deployment and support solutions on the Microsoft SharePoint platform.

Microsoft rewards their gold partners with pre-released software – which in our case we use to develop websites, apps and hosting environments. More importantly, ones that push boundaries. This requires commitment and a proposition strong enough to equal Microsoft’s stern partner criteria and expectations.

Microsoft Worldwide Partner of the Year.

Each year, Microsoft honours one of its partners with the Worldwide Partner of the Year award. In 2012, and in its inaugural year, we won this prestigious award based on our business-to-consumer mobility work.

We were happy to have been given this accreditation at a time when Microsoft decided to move into the mobile space. Since then, we’ve launched Microsoft projects that are world-renowned. We’ve worked with the British & Irish Lions, Dailymotion and Aviva to name a few. And our story with Microsoft developing Windows products across the web goes on.

Windows application development.

We use .NET and MS SQL to craft our work, using the latest technologies and marketing platforms to accomplish our clients’ goals. Whether it’s integrating Dynamics CRM or Dynamics ERP, or running your website – be in a Sitecore or Umbraco site – on Azure. We have a strong technical pedigree and have developed advanced systems in both public and private sectors. We also design rich web, mobile and tablet experiences, including several notable Windows Phone, Windows 8 and 10 apps and cross-platform mobile solutions using native and Xamarin.

Windows Azure as a technology platform is absolutely at the heart of the solution built for the British & Irish Lions. It means that the Lions can publish their content once, put it into the system that Sequence have built, and then seamlessly have that information powered out across all devices.
