What is a Microsoft Certified Partner?

What is a Microsoft Certified Partner?

Anna Lawton, Marketing Coordinator, Fabric

A Microsoft Certified Partner (MCP) is a company who has agreed to provide Microsoft-related products and services and offer support alongside them. 

Fabric are a part of the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN), meaning we have the most up to date support and training from Microsoft to assist us in giving our customers the best IT support possible. 

Since 1996, Fabric have been Microsoft Gold Certified Partners. This is the highest accredited title and can only be achieved if you have been recognised as a firm which provides the best Microsoft IT services in the UK. 

Our staff work tirelessly to improve their technical knowledge and offer the best services to our customers. 



All Microsoft partners are eligible to obtain competencies in key technical fields. Competencies can only be awarded if you meet a specific criteria, to showcase your expertise across six main categories: App Dev and ISV, Cloud Platform & Infrastructure, Data Management & Analytics, Business Applications, Mobility, Productivity.  

For each competency, you can obtain a Silver or Gold award depending on how many requirements you meet. 

We’ve recently been awarded a Gold award in Cloud Platform, which means our official logo is now fully Gold! 


We currently have the following competencies: 

Gold Windows and Devices 

Gold Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions 

Gold Datacenter 

Gold Cloud Platform 

Gold Collaborations and Content 

Silver Application Development 

Silver Cloud Productivity 


As you can see, our staff have been hard at work, passing exams, continuously learning in our fast-paced, exciting industry. 


We wanted to take the time to thank our wonderful staff for achieving this excellent goal. 

We also want to thank all our amazing customers for helping us get to where we are now.
