Berea, OH – March 25, 2016 – UpSearch, LLC, today announced it has achieved a Silver Data Analytics competency, demonstrating its ability to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment. To earn a Microsoft silver competency, partners must successfully demonstrate expertise through rigorous exams, culminating in Microsoft certifications.
