Axceler Achieves Microsoft's MTC Alliance and BCSP Partner Status Programs

Axceler Strengthens Microsoft Relationship to Accelerate Adoption of Yammer, SharePoint 2013, and O365; Launches Migration Acceleration Promotion

WOBURN, MA--(Marketwired - May 23, 2013) - Axceler®, a leader in enterprise collaboration governance administration, and migration solutions, today announced that the Company has been accepted into the Microsoft Technical Center (MTC) Alliance Program and the Business-Critical SharePoint (BCSP) Program, two programs acknowledging Axceler's commitment to excellence within the Microsoft community. The company's participation in the Microsoft partner programs help connect its staff directly with Microsoft, giving Axceler the ability to align more closely with the Microsoft vision, strategy and roadmap ultimately providing Axceler customers even more value through a tightly integrated solution and experience.

The Microsoft Technical Center (MTC) Alliance Program is a group of industry leaders in hardware, software and services who work together to create and drive joint initiatives and offerings to provide customers with the very latest in value-added products and services. As a member of the MTC Alliance Program, Axceler will be able to showcase its award winning collaboration governance and administration products at MTCs across the globe. In addition, the MTCs will have the opportunity to implement Axceler solutions to help manage their own SharePoint and Yammer environments.

Additionally, Microsoft's Business-Critical SharePoint (BCSP) Program is a group of partners working with Microsoft to help customers connect SharePoint to existing line-of-business (LOB) systems and expand SharePoint practices into business-critical solutions. After a rigorous and rigid application process, Axceler has been adopted into this exclusive program reserved for the most critical business application partners. As a BCSP partner, Axceler is referenced by Microsoft as a resource for customers and the Company has access to networking opportunities and support from SharePoint experts within Microsoft Consulting Services.

As Microsoft's SharePoint technology is an important part of Axceler's go-to-market strategy, strengthening the partner relationship with Microsoft is a crucial next step in providing complete support to customers. With access to these programs, Axceler will have a broader reach and increased validity to educate users on the need for visibility and control in collaboration environments -- driving adoption and productivity as well as providing more support for its ControlPoint and ViewPoint products.

"Acceptance into these Microsoft partner programs is very exciting and further validates Axceler as an industry leader in the collaboration industry," said Michael Alden, CEO of Axceler. "This provides us with the opportunity to strengthen our ties with Microsoft around our support for SharePoint 2013, Office 365, and Yammer, in order to provide more value and guidance to our existing and prospective customers."

In support of Microsoft's strategy around SharePoint 2013, Axceler is currently running its Migration Acceleration Promotion which lets users of SharePoint 2003, 2007, and 2010 migrate their environments to 2013 at extremely competitive prices. For example, now through the end of June, an enterprise can move a 200G SharePoint 2007 or 2010 farm to SharePoint 2013 with pre-migration analysis, advanced copy and move, and other management features for $12,250.

In addition, Axceler continues to provide a pre-release version of ViewPoint Enterprise, a customizable dashboard that provides visibility into enterprise social networks, such as Yammer and SharePoint. A pre-release version is available at ViewPoint Enterprise will allow users to analyze, visualize, and report on both SharePoint and Yammer adoption from one united view.
