Invensys’ Avantis Achieves Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Status

BURLINGTON, ONTARIO – February 24, 2006 – The Avantis unit of Invensys Process Systems today announced that it has achieved Gold Certified Partner level in the Microsoft Partner Program. The certification recognizes a Microsoft Competency in ISV/Software Solutions and in Networking Infrastructure Solutions.
