BOSTON, MA McGladrey & Pullen, LLP, a leading professional services firm providing audit, tax and consulting services, under the McGladrey brand, was recently accepted as an exclusive Microsoft Cloud Accelerate Partner – a status held by fewer than one percent of Microsoft partners around the world.

Launched in 2010, the Microsoft Cloud Accelerate Partner program showcases and supports top partners committed to delivering the next generation of cloud services to clients. McGladrey achieved the status by fulfilling advanced certification requirements that ranged from training sessions and assessments to providing client references and committing to goals set forth by Microsoft.

"At McGladrey, we understand the potential implications for our clients. Being named a Cloud Accelerate Partner demonstrates that we are uniquely positioned to help clients navigate this evolving landscape."

McGladrey's technology consultants help clients address issues affecting productivity, data storage, application delivery, business intelligence, unified communications, collaboration, security and more by leveraging Microsoft products such as Office 365, Dynamics CRM Online, SharePoint and Windows Intune. As a Cloud Accelerate Partner, McGladrey has elite access to core benefits provided to members of the Microsoft Partner Network, as well as to online sales and financial modeling tools, pre-sales and technical support resources, specialized cloud training and the Cloud Services roadmap. Additional benefits include dedicated administration consultation, which provides McGladrey with effective tools to remotely administer online services.

"We are excited about having McGladrey as a Microsoft Cloud Accelerate Partner," said Chris Mitchell, National O365 TSP Sales Manager. "The partners in this program provide exceptional value to their clients through Microsoft cloud solutions. It's a win-win-win."
