The Silver Competency emphasizes our strength in today's technology market and demonstrates our continued knowledge of Microsoft and their products. This achievement demonstrates our ability to meet our clients' evolving needs in today's dynamic business environment,” said Robert Canterbury, AIMS’ president.
