Local accounting software company, idu Software, 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. And to ensure the highest quality of services, Microsoft requires customer references for successful implementation and customer satisfaction.
Idu Software simplifies financial management for non-financial managers. Its flagship product, idu-Concept, provides easy, effective budgeting and financial reporting for medium-sized to large businesses, including many of South Africa’s top firms.

We are able to leverage our detailed business and technology understanding to deliver successful Analytics solutions.”

These are highly qualified professionals with access to Microsoft technical support and product teams.”
Attaining the Data Analytics competency demonstrates partner expertise in designing, developing and implementing analytics and data management solutions that allow customers to monitor, analyse and plan business performance based on actionable business insight. Equipped with exclusive training, the latest software, and support on solutions around Microsoft SQL Server 2012 and Microsoft Azure, partners help their customers set their organisation apart from the competition.
