Slalom Consulting Named to Microsoft's Elite National Systems Integrator Program

Prestigious Microsoft Program Recognizes Slalom Consulting as a Top Partner in the U.S.

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - September 16, 2008) - Slalom Consulting, ranked one of the best consulting firms to work for in the United States by Consulting Magazine, today announced that it has been named a Microsoft National System Integrator (NSI) Partner. Microsoft's NSI Program consists of strategic national organizations that have made significant investments to drive the Microsoft platform and application business. Acceptance into this prestigious program places Slalom Consulting into a select group of the top 50 Microsoft partners across the United States.

The Microsoft NSI Partner Program was established for elite Microsoft partners to elevate their marketing and delivery strategies across multiple geographic and product segments. The objective of the NSI program is to increase Microsoft's focus and engagement with Slalom Consulting, which includes overall strategic planning, greater alignment with Microsoft field resources, collaborative marketing efforts, and executive sponsorship.

"The induction process for the NSI group is extremely selective, with few qualified members receiving the honor," said Tom Chew, National General Manager, Solutions at Slalom Consulting. "We have specific expertise in Microsoft technologies that sets us apart from our competitors. Recognition as one of the premier national Microsoft partners further demonstrates our ability to deliver for clients."

Slalom consultants are transforming traditional consulting models with an innovative formula that combines seasoned experts, the firm's locally-based approach, its balanced model of solutions-based and general management consulting offerings, and its highly relevant and sought-after marketplace services. This model has helped Slalom grow revenue to over $100 million and employ the best and brightest consulting professionals.

Slalom Consulting is also recognized by Microsoft as a Gold Certified Partner for expertise in Business Intelligence, Custom Development, Information Worker and Microsoft Business Solutions. Gold Certified Partners have a strong competitive advantage in the marketplace because they receive additional access, training and support from Microsoft.
