Lionbridge's VeriTest Testing Service Now Certifying Applications for Interoperability with Microsoft Dynamics Business Solutions
WALTHAM, Mass., July 10 -- Lionbridge Technologies, Inc., (NASDAQ:LIOX) today announced that Microsoft has chosen its VeriTest® testing division as the provider of testing and validation services for independent software vendors (ISVs) seeking the "Certified for Microsoft Dynamics" accreditation. During the past 13 years, Lionbridge has helped thousands of ISVs in the Microsoft ecosystem maximize the reach of their application through comprehensive application development, testing, certification, and localization services. ISVs with Certified for Microsoft Dynamics solutions are prioritized for participation in Microsoft Dynamics early adopter programs, and become eligible to participate in Microsoft sales and marketing initiatives.
"We have worked with Lionbridge and its VeriTest division for many years to deliver quality certification tests across a full range of products," said Christian Lindberg, senior program manager, Microsoft Corp. "The Certified for Microsoft Dynamics accreditation is an ideal vehicle for ISVs to differentiate their Microsoft Dynamics-based software solution in the market place. Our end customers will recognize the value these solutions bring to their business due to the high standards every certified solution must meet."
The program officially launched today at the Worldwide Partner Conference. ISVs seeking the "Certified for Microsoft Dynamics" accreditation must:
o Have the ISV solution pass testing for the Software Solution Test for Microsoft Dynamics
o Have at least ten customer references that will recommend the ISV solution
o Have profiled the ISV solution in Solution Finder for the specific Microsoft Dynamics product it interoperates with as a "Software Offering" only
o Be a current member in the Microsoft Partner Program with Microsoft Gold Certified Partner status
o Be on a Partner Service Plan for Microsoft Dynamics
"VeriTest's longstanding relationship with Microsoft as an authorized certification partner has allowed us to develop streamlined processes that help ISVs manage each stage of the test, including pre-certification and code maintenance. Our global project management enables ISVs from around the world to ensure their products are compatible with Microsoft platforms," said Steve Nemzer, vice president, global development and test, Lionbridge. "The new Certified for Microsoft Dynamics program builds on our successful relationship with Microsoft and its ISV partners, who continue to rely on Lionbridge's VeriTest service to ensure the reliability, compatibility, and usability of applications worldwide."
VeriTest pioneered product certification testing together with Microsoft in 1994 when it helped launch the first Designed for Windows logo program. Today, VeriTest is an authorized solutions partner for many Microsoft certification programs, including the Microsoft Certified for Windows Vista Program. The test services from VeriTest enable current and prospective ISV members of the Windows partner ecosystem to quickly and cost-effectively ensure that their applications meet the Microsoft specifications.
