Zap Earns Certified for Microsoft Dynamics NAV Accreditation

Brisbane, Australia, February 17, 2010 --( Zap announced today that its Business Analytics for Microsoft Dynamics NAV solution is now Certified for Microsoft Dynamics, which signifies that the solution has met Microsoft Corp.’s highest standard for partner-developed software. Business Analytics for Microsoft Dynamics NAV is Zap’s second out of the box advanced analytics solution to achieve the Certified for Microsoft Dynamics accreditation.

Solutions that are Certified for Microsoft Dynamics have demonstrated development quality and compatibility with the Microsoft Dynamics product on which it runs by passing rigorous VeriTest software solution testing for Microsoft Dynamics and are profiled in the Microsoft Partner Solution Profiler tool. In addition, the Microsoft Dynamics partner must have customers who are successfully using the certified solution and are willing to recommend it, be enrolled in a Partner Service Plan with Microsoft, and be a Gold Certified Partner in the Microsoft Partner Program.

This certification represents a significant step in elevating the standard for partner-developed software solutions for industry-specific business applications.

“By requiring both the software solution and the partner to meet our highest standards, Microsoft is assuring customers that these certified solutions work with their investments in Microsoft Dynamics,” said Doug Kennedy, vice president, Microsoft Dynamics Partners. “Microsoft congratulates Zap on achieving the Certified for Microsoft Dynamics status for Business Analytics for Microsoft Dynamics NAV by demonstrating its success and commitment in delivering a leading Microsoft Dynamics solution.”
