A start-up software development consultancy based in Ipswich is celebrating after achieving a key competency rating from Microsoft.
IJYI (pronounced E-G) has gained the Microsoft Silver competency for Application Lifecycle Management, a comprehensive approach to developing software from concept through to release.
To earn a Microsoft silver competency, businesses have to demonstrate expertise through rigorous exams and submit customer testimonials.
IJYI’s success puts it among only 5% of Microsoft partners able to offer this standard of service.
Chris Pont, who co-founded IJYI in June last year with John Nicholson, said: “The team is thrilled to have been recognised this way and to be able to prove that we work to a Microsoft approved level of delivery.
