ProSource Adds Gold Enterprise Mobility Management to Growing Competecy List

Richfield, OH – In recent years, we have seen a shift in work habits. More employees are now working out of the office. The number of personal devices being used to get business done is on the rise. In this increasingly mobile world, companies want – and need – the freedom and flexibility to enable workers to get the job done without compromising the safety of their corporate data.

As a Microsoft-certified Gold Cloud Productivity and Gold Cloud Platform partner, ProSource has been working with companies of all sizes to increase their productivity by helping them implement Office 365 in their organizations and leverage the cloud-services licensing model for years.

We are excited to share that our team has recently added another Gold certification from Microsoft – Enterprise Mobility Management! It’s all about keeping clients productive and secure on their favorite applications and devices with Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) solutions from Microsoft.

Our team is working with companies to strike that balance between productivity and data security with EMS. Mobility isn’t just about workers and devices – it includes corporate applications and corporate data as well. We are helping ensure that our client’s data is protected before, during and after it has been accessed.

Microsoft Awards ProSource Solutions “Fiscal Year 2015 Top U.S. Partner of the Year” for Enterprise Services

Richfield, OH – September 2, 2015
ProSource Solutions, a world-class IT consulting firm, is proud to announce that Microsoft recognized and awarded ProSource the FY15 Top U.S. Partner of the Year Award for Enterprise Services at its World Partner Conference in Orlando. This marks the fifth consecutive year that ProSource has been distinguished with a partner of the year honor, a record for both ProSource and Microsoft.

When asked about the award, Bill Curry, Chief Technology Officer of ProSource Solutions, stated that “Our unprecedented track record of success is a result of two things: our knowledge in Microsoft technologies and our experience helping our customers best leverage those technologies.  Our technology teams have a truly superior and unique knowledge of the Microsoft suite of products.  Understanding how businesses typically use and misuse them and what can be done to successfully integrate and implement them to drive significantly improved collaboration, productivity and profitability – the three things that our customers most desire. Our people have worked in the most complicated, highly regulated and complex technology environments.  There is not an environment we walk into that we cannot significantly improve due to our experience. Kudos to our team for the consistent and quality results they produce for Microsoft and our customers.”

That sentiment was supported by Chip Nemesi, Senior Vice President of Services with Mainline Information Systems, who stated “We have a strong partnership with ProSource. We chose them as our strategic Microsoft Partner for two reasons. First, they are one of the only Microsoft Partners that have skills that span the entire spectrum of complex Microsoft technologies. Secondly, and more importantly, they are very good at explaining the business benefits that our clients can derive from using Microsoft technologies correctly, and then they deliver results for those clients. In some cases our customers have realized hundreds of thousands of dollars in annual return.”

ProSource Solutions Promotes Shaun Mosher to Technical Group Lead

Richfield, OH – ProSource Solutions, LLC., a leading Microsoft solution provider in collaboration and content, application development, cloud platform and IT infrastructure strategies has promoted Shaun Mosher to Technical Group Lead.  Shaun will help lead the Application Development element of ProSource in our determination to continue satisfying our clients with the right solutions, at the right time, for the right business needs.

With the technology trends we are seeing in the market today, it is clear to ProSource that there are a few key movements in the applications development space that will require a well-rounded array of technical skills mixed with keen business acumen.  Shaun Mosher is uniquely skilled to lead in this space having worked with ProSource in various capacities as far back as 2007 and has become an extremely valuable member of our team.  Shaun’s expertise is focused around providing SharePoint solutions. He is also a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE), and has development experience in Visual Basic and C#.  Directly aligned with ProSource’s core values, Shaun declares that he is “a technology enthusiast who believes that technology should support real life.”  We couldn’t agree more!

As larger firms begin to diversify and specialize in very dynamic markets, their IT operational needs begin to focus on more custom “vertical” application development.  While for years ProSource has provided quality on-point consulting to major firms deploying and supporting Microsoft technologies, we find that often times businesses have no choice but to build applications that close systematic gaps or integrate systems built from existing Microsoft solutions.  Accordingly, ProSource is reinvesting significate resources into its Application Development Operations Center in order to meet that need.

This effort includes provisioning full support for the “configure or build” dilemma most C-level executives are facing these days.  Consistent with ensuring the most return on investment for past IT projects, applications, and IT-based installations, more and more firms are looking to experts who know how to advise on efforts to retain and use the technology they already own.  In many cases, the best advice is not to completely rebuild a custom application from scratch; rather it is to keep certain parts of a well-functioning system in place, while building others specifically to work with existing technologies.  This allows businesses to consider a much better option–configure AND build versus being left to choose one or the other.

In addition to the standard fundamentals of IT investment and management, Enterprise Social Collaboration is taking the country by storm.  Having worked with major firms in vertical markets for many years now, ProSource understands very well the value of fostering and retaining key knowledge within the organization.  While the talk all around the IT market is about “Big Data,” ProSource understands the real issue affecting corporate America—Big Knowledge.  Knowledge is expensive to find, expensive to gain, and hard to organize.  ProSource is squarely postured to help firms take advantage of innovative ways to promote and retain corporate knowledge by deploying effective, useable, culture-fostering social technologies within the firm.
