How to Apply to Become a Certified GoldSim Solution Provider

SolutionProviderLogo

By certifying an organization as a GoldSim Solution Provider, GoldSim Technology Group (GTG) is providing some level of assurance to prospective customers that the organization is qualified to provide quality GoldSim consulting support. Therefore, to become a Certified GoldSim Solution Provider, the applicants must demonstrate to GTG an appropriate level of GoldSim expertise, the ability to provide high-quality GoldSim consulting, active participation in the GoldSim community, and familiarity with the latest version of GoldSim (in particular, at least 50% of their registered GoldSim licenses must have an active Subscription).

Applications

To do so, applicants should put together a short document with the following information:

  • A single individual (and active GoldSim user) who will be designated as the primary contact for the organization regarding the certification.
  • A list of the active GoldSim users in the organization, and the number of years of GoldSim experience for each. Each of these users should be registered on the GoldSim Forum.
  • A list of the individual users considered internally to be the “GoldSim experts” for the organization. These are the individuals who provide review and are tasked with assuring the quality of GoldSim applications in the organization.
  • A brief description of the process (e.g., reviews, etc.) that the organization employs to assure the quality of GoldSim models.
  • A list and brief (one paragraph) description of the major GoldSim applications carried out by the organization over the past year (these need not name specific clients and will remain confidential).
  • A one-page case study of one of the organization’s applications from the past year. This case study should be written in a way (e.g., protecting confidentiality) such that it can be posted to our website (or featured in a newsletter article).
  • A quote from an individual in the organization describing their use of GoldSim that we can post to our website.
  • At least one model that the organization has submitted to the Model Library.

This information should be sent to support@goldsim.com.

Benefits

If the organization is approved, we will:

  • Grant it permission to display the Certified GoldSim Solution Provider logo on its website.
  • Add the organization to the list of Certified GoldSim Solution Providers, along with a short description of the organization (and contact information), to the GoldSim website.
  • Provide the other benefits outlined in the Partner Program page.
  • Ask the organization to provide a link to the GoldSim website from their website.

Annual Certification Renewal

Certification (and any benefits accruing to certification) has a one year duration. Once per year, the organization must become re-certified. On the anniversary date, the organization will be contacted, and asked to provide the following information:

  • An updated list of the active GoldSim users in the organization, and the number of years of GoldSim experience for each. Each of these users should be registered on the GoldSim Forum.
  • A list and brief (one paragraph) description of the major GoldSim applications carried out by the organization over the past year (these need not name specific clients and will remain confidential).
  • A one-page case study of one of the organization’s applications from the past year. This case study should be written in a way (e.g., protecting confidentiality) such that it can be posted to our website (or featured in a newsletter article).
  • At least one model that the organization has submitted to the Model Library in the past year.
  • Demonstration that the organization has maintained a link to the GoldSim website from their website.
  • Demonstration that at least 50% of the registered GoldSim licenses in the organization have an active Subscription at the time of recertification.
