AvePoint’s new ACE (AvePoint Certified Expert) Program provides partners with formal, in-depth training on AvePoint’s best-of-breed software solutions for SharePoint infrastructure management

Jersey City, NJ – October __, 2009 – AvePoint, the leading provider of Infrastructure Management Software solutions for Microsoft SharePoint, today announced that DocPoint Solutions is the first of its partners to complete the AvePoint Certified Expert (ACE) training program. As a result of this training, DocPoint Solutions, a provider of SharePoint consulting, training, and deployment services throughout the mid-Atlantic United States, are fully fluent in the various products AvePoint offers, and can provide its clients with comprehensive consulting on AvePoint solutions.

“We’re very excited to have DocPoint certified through our ACE Program”, said Tom Lin, Vice President of Strategic Alliances at AvePoint. “DocPoint has been providing expert SharePoint consulting services and support to Mid-Altantic commercial and Federal government customers for several years, and now they can provide clients with comprehensive, technical guidance about the industry’s most powerful SharePoint infrastructure management solutions.”

The ACE program provides AvePoint partners with in-depth training on AvePoint product installation and configuration, as well as how to fully leverage its various tools for SharePoint data protection, reporting, storage optimization, archiving, auditing, administration, and migration. Partners seeking ACE certification must attend a series of live or web-enabled training sessions, and pass both an online and oral examination. The more comprehensive Technical-ACE certification demands additional technical training and requires the participant to deliver a technical presentation to AvePoint engineers. DocPoint consultant Justin Brown was the first to complete AvePoint’s training program, receiving the Technical-ACE certification on September 23, 2009. In addition to learning about DocAve’s 22 independently-deployable modules, Justin also received one-on-one training from AvePoint’s engineers.

“AvePoint is a great suite of products and this in-depth training enables my team to better serve our clients needs”, said Mark McGovern, Manager of Solutions at DocPoint. “Going forward, the ACE program will continue to serve as a critical component of DocPoint’s training framework, and will serve to help us assist businesses as they optimize their SharePoint environments.”
