NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - July 7, 2010) - Computer Generated Solutions, Inc. (CGS) has been named for a second consecutive year as a finalist for the Microsoft® Partner Awards in the Microsoft Dynamics® Professional Services Partner of the Year award category. The Award honors partners who have exhibited excellence in providing superior solutions based on Microsoft Dynamics to customers in the professional services industry. This award recognizes CGS for demonstrating industry knowledge and expertise, as well as consistent, high-quality, predictable service to Microsoft Dynamics customers. Chosen from a pool of nearly 3000 entrants from around the globe, winners and finalists will be recognized at the July 11-15 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) 2010 in Washington, DC.

"We are honored to be recognized by Microsoft for the second consecutive year," said Phil Friedman, President and Chief Executive Officer of CGS. "CGS has a strong track record of commitment to -- and innovation in -- the professional services market, both as a value added reseller (VAR) and an independent software vendor (ISV). Our consultants, developers and delivery resources are recognized for having some of the deepest domain knowledge and technical expertise in the market. This recognition is a reflection of our talent and commitment to the professional services market."

As a leading Microsoft Gold Certified Partner since 2005, CGS leverages its broad range of industry expertise and the power behind the Microsoft Dynamics suite of software to offer integrated solutions that support critical business processes and collaborative information management.

"Congratulations to the 2010 Partner Award finalists for delivering such creative and superior Microsoft solutions and services," said Allison Watson, Corporate Vice President, Worldwide Partner Group, Microsoft Corp. "It's incredible to see the level of expertise our partners continue to exhibit as they create and deliver innovative solutions and services to grow their businesses, meet customer needs, and drive down costs." A key driver in this year's recognition was the April 2010 launch of the revolutionary new CGS Media Asset Production Management System for Microsoft Dynamics® AX. The result of more than 18 months of development, this breakthrough technology provides media and entertainment companies with an end-to-end business solution designed to streamline the flow of digital and physical products through their operation by managing the entire post-production lifecycle. Developed in collaboration with Microsoft® and Ascent Media Group, the new system combines core capabilities of the popular Microsoft Dynamics AX business management (ERP) solution with industry-specific requirements to deliver a uniquely comprehensive and flexible solution.
