Taro Systems, Inc. Earns Certified Partner Status in the Microsoft Certified Partner Program

Microsoft Certification Program

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., May 10, 2007 -- Taro Systems, Inc., with over 25 years of providing real estate software solutions, and developer of Pro Gold XP, announced today that it is a new member of the Microsoft Certified Partner Program, which recognizes Taro Systems’ expertise and impact in the real estate software marketplace.

Over twenty five years in operation has afforded us the knowledge needed to develop unique and dynamic solutions to the real estate industry’s problems. The proof of our dedication can be found in the successes of our clients - real estate companies of all sizes - including some of the largest in the industry. Taro is technology aligned with relationships, providing outstanding customer service to the people that count - the customers!

“I have been fortunate to celebrate our 26th year in business at Taro Systems,” said Taro Systems’ Founder and CEO Doug Lee. “Several key decisions along the way, I believe were instrumental to our success. 1st was in 1983 the decision to follow the leader IBM, with its Microsoft DOS operating system and migrate away from the mainstay Digital Research CPM operating system. Since then our development team follows the standards Microsoft establishes. Just like then when IBM was the leader to follow...today Microsoft is the standard to which Taro Systems, Inc. follows. The Microsoft Certified Partner Program has already provided us with great resources for our product development efforts.”

The Microsoft Certified Partner Program allows Taro Systems, Inc. to utilize the Microsoft Certified Partner logo, which is an easy way for customers to recognize Taro Systems, Inc. as being certified by Microsoft Corp. Microsoft offers a variety of resources to program members, including training, technical support, early access to Microsoft products and peer-networking opportunities that allow a variety of partners to come together and provide end-to-end customer solutions.

The Microsoft Partner Program was launched in December 2003 and represents Microsoft’s ongoing commitment to the success of partners worldwide. The Microsoft Partner Program offers a single, integrated partnering framework that recognizes partner expertise, rewards the total impact that partners have in the technology marketplace, and delivers more value to help partners’ businesses be successful.
