SSI Awarded Microsoft Preferred Provider Status

Online MR NewsShelton, CT – May 23, 2013 – SSI, the leading provider of sample and data collection solutions for researchers, has been designated as a preferred providerin the Microsoft Preferred Supplier Program (MPSP).

The program makes it easy for Microsoft employees to work globally with a prequalified, select group of suppliers. Qualification requires a rigorous review of a company’s products, procedures and service levels. The status that SSI now enjoys with Microsoft brings about new efficiencies for both companies and new value to the relationship they are building together.

A primary purpose of MPSP is to define the way suppliers do business with Microsoft, including requirements and expectations, to create a clear, straight path to success.

“The quality you get with a product from a vendor in the MPSP is very high because…the vendor has invested a lot into getting qualified,” comments Microsoft staff. They appreciate that preferred vendors “know how to work with us…they know how our processes and procedures work” and “you’re getting the most qualified vendors.”

One Microsoft employee commented that working with a preferred supplier “takes a lot of my worries away.”

Jackie Lorch, SSI VP Global Knowledge Management said: “The Microsoft Preferred Supplier Program includes only suppliers who are best in providing their category. I am very pleased that SSI’s products and services have been recognized by Microsoft in our category of sample and data collection. This is another indicator of our corporate commitment to quality which we deliver every day to our more than 3,000 customers worldwide.”
