Microsoft strengthens partnership Dept with Elite Partner Status


Microsoft Advertising – formerly known as Bing Ads – has granted Dept the official Elite Partner Status. In doing so, the search ad platform gives the green light for closer cooperation with the digital agency.

Last year, Microsoft and Dept previously strengthened ties to further explore the potential of the search engine for the clients of the digital agency. This gave the agency access to features that were still in beta mode as well as strategic and operational support. Also, various training courses were made available to Dept consultants.

“In 2018, the collaboration between Dept and Microsoft really took off,” says Robert Verbeek, Digital Marketing Specialist at Dept. “With this new partnership, we are better able to help our customers. And we are quite proud too because only a few independent agencies in the Netherlands have managed to obtain this status.”

“We are pleased that Dept became an official Elite Partner in 2019”, adds Mark Richardson, Regional Vice President at Microsoft Advertising. “The strong partnership with the Depsters, the application of innovation and the continuous working towards realising common goals have led to the achievement of this success. We look forward to continuing to grow our partnership.”
