Kentico Takes WCM Implementation to a Higher Level
Adds Kentico Partner Quality Audit to global partner program; BlueModus and Get Started are first two partners to attain new certification
Bedford, New Hampshire, USA, September 1, 2015 – Kentico Software, the Web Content and Customer Experience Management provider, today announced it is adding a new Kentico Partner Quality Audit designation to its global partner program. The goal of this new certification is to recognize those partners who are working at the very highest levels of technology and standards while implementing web content management solutions for clients.
“Customers are demanding increasingly sophisticated WCM solutions,” said Kentico Founder and CEO Petr Palas. “They want seamless integration with other best-of-breed solutions across the enterprise. They are looking to maintain performance while dealing with more and more visitor traffic. And they are pushing digital marketing and marketing automation capabilities to greater heights. So, we felt it was necessary for customers to know, with certainty, which Kentico partners are bringing the greatest technical assets to the table.” Palas continued, “The Kentico Partner Quality Audit program is designed to do just that. It is a win for customers, a win for Kentico, and it’s driving the industry towards superior levels of technical execution and delivery.”
Digital marketing technology and solutions agency BlueModus, headquartered in Denver, Colorado, and Get Started, creators of digital experiences since 1999 and headquartered in Melbourne, Australia are the first two Kentico partners to achieve this new certification after a rigorous review of their site implementations by Kentico’s top architects. The agencies met Kentico’s strict requirements for security, performance, and coding best practices along with the correct, fully optimized use of Kentico features and integrations.
"Our team is very proud of achieving this highest level of certification from Kentico," said BlueModus Director of Application Development Nate Kresse. “By taking the time to work with us – to ensure we are taking full advantage of Kentico and meeting the highest level of performance, security and other standards – Kentico has shown once again that they truly care about partner success, client satisfaction, and the business output that comes from the use of their product.”
“Get Started is thrilled to be one of the first two agencies worldwide to receive Kentico’s Partner Quality Audit certification,” said Andy Thompson, Director and CTO, Get Started. “We always strive to go the extra mile for clients and it's great to see our dedication to quality being acknowledged. We genuinely appreciate the relationship and support we receive from Kentico and it’s reassuring to know that they are just as vested as we are in producing the best possible online experiences.”
Partners looking to attain the new Kentico Partner Quality Audit certification must be a Gold Partner, have an Ultimate or higher Kentico license, and submit two projects for review by Kentico’s technical team. The submission must include evidence of customization and integration; projects to be reviewed must be a copy of an actual live site in the production environment; and areas evaluated during the audit include set-up, network, software, system, Kentico configuration, Kentico architecture and design, and Kentico implementation. The certification is conducted by Kentico technical experts and is ultimately signed off by a Kentico Solution Architect.
