ATLANTA, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Liquidware Labs announced that Centrinet has received its Center of Excellence (COE) designation. This designation is only conferred upon Acceler8 Partners who have integrated the Liquidware Labs transformation methodology and solution set into their business processes to deliver superior services to the highest standards in an industry-leading technical framework.
"We are pleased to recognize Centrinet as a Center of Excellence Partner for their serious commitment to staying on the leading edge of Desktop Transformation with solutions from Liquidware Labs," said Chris Akerberg, President and COO of Liquidware Labs.

Liquidware Labs has been an ideal partner for Centrinet over the last several years and has added value to our team at every level of the organization," said Dario Ferreira, Executive Vice President of Centrinet. "We have found that Liquidware Labs solutions are essential in helping address requirements in our customer environments to successfully move them to next generation desktops. We are honored to have the Center of Excellence distinction."
"Liquidware Labs is a true partner-focused vendor with a field team that is always ready to help add value for our customers. Their solution portfolio success is attributed to straight-forward infrastructure requirements, ease-of-setup, and in turn, simplification of ongoing management and support," said Derrick Faur, Technology Solutions Lead at Centrinet.

Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
