CfMD-logoSolutions that are Certified for Microsoft Dynamics have demonstrated development quality and compatibility with the Microsoft Dynamics product on which they run by passing rigorous software testing for Microsoft Dynamics performed by VeriTest (a service of Lionbridge). In addition, the Microsoft Dynamics partner must have customers who are successfully using the certified solution and are willing to recommend it and be a Gold Certified Partner in the Microsoft Partner Program.

For customers, CfMD helps identify Microsoft Dynamics solutions that have been tested for compatibility, meet high quality standards, and are successfully used by existing customers. This certification represents a significant step in elevating the standard for partner-developed software solutions for industry-specific business applications. By highlighting these solutions, Microsoft also creates new opportunities for partners to expand their reseller channel and to better promote their packaged Microsoft Dynamics solution for customers.

This milestone demonstrates Altus Dynamics’ commitment to delivering the most effective business solutions and expertise for our customers,” said Fred Studer, general manager Microsoft Dynamics. “We congratulate Altus Dynamics for meeting Microsoft’s highest standards of quality.”

Altus Dynamics NAV 2013 is the latest version of the ERP solution offered by Altus Dynamics. Based on Microsoft’s Dynamics® NAV offering, Altus Dynamics have leveraged this solid technology platform with its broad horizontal functionality and customized it with the deep vertical features and functions needed to meet the needs of the non-profit and public sector.

We’ve been developing solutions around NAV for many years and through many versions. We’ve also been a Microsoft Gold Partner for ERP for years, but with the development of our latest offering based on NAV 2013, we felt the time was right to take it to the next level and pursue CfMD.“ commented James Faw, Chief Technology Officer and Founding Partner at Altus Dynamics. “Having CfMD status not only highlights the quality of the product but also the skill and expertise of our development team who created it. They should be very proud of what they have achieved.” added Faw.
