Last year was a rollercoaster for businesses across the globe. The ongoing health crisis caused companies to evolve quicker and adopt new technologies to ease the transition. As the world continues to adjust to the “new normal”, we’ve been honoured to welcome a variety of new Influential Software clients in Q1 2021.
But first, here are some other wins we achieved this quarter:
Launching Microsoft training
This past quarter, we’ve continued to look for ways to expand and adapt to the new way of working. One such way is the launch of our Microsoft certified courses. These instructor-led Microsoft courses prepare learners for Microsoft certifications that lead to rewarding careers.
Going for gold with Microsoft Gold Partner Status
At the start of the year, we were excited to announce our Microsoft Gold Partner certification. As of April 2021, our Microsoft competencies are:
- Microsoft Gold Cloud Platform
- Microsoft Silver Application Integration
- Microsoft Silver Application Development
- Microsoft Silver Security
Working out while WFH
We’ve also been taking steps to ensure our team stays healthy during lockdown. One example is our adoption of YuLife reward-based insurance. Our resident PT has also been hosting weekly HIIT workouts for our team to join in and shift the lockdown weight.
