Northern Micro and Microsoft Surface: Your Ally in Building Bridges
November 19, 2020 | Ottawa, ON
Organizations bring individuals together and empower them with a common purpose. Their systems are how they work towards it.
We believe that when walls are built around systems, sometimes people get stuck there too. Luckily, technology is making bricks and mortar less relevant. Productivity is no longer directly tied to being under one roof.
As design thinkers, we also believe that reaping the benefits of this new way of working starts with understanding end–users, their needs, their environment, and their abilities.
That is also we invest so much in working with partners like Microsoft Surface. This innovative brand speaks to our vision for the future. Our long-standing partnership with Microsoft, which began in 1985, has already transformed countless workplaces in Ottawa and across the country.
Over the past few months, a lot has changed in this regard. As one of only a handful of Microsoft Gold Certified partners in Canada, we have been able to support the rapid transformation of entire government departments and hundreds of organizations, each with unique security, operational and logistical challenges.
Since the start of the pandemic for example, we have imaged, updated, installed software, asset tagged, warranty tagged, and shipped tens of thousands of devices to almost as many locations. Through it all, we stayed true to our commitment to the highest security standards and exceptional customer service, which includes advanced warranty replacement, an exclusive media retention program, and our signature white-glove service.
As a Converge Company, we are much more than the technology that we sell. The Northern Micro team includes some visionaries with vast expertise in digital infrastructure, AI and advanced analytics, cloud computing, cyber security, edge computing, professional services, and beyond.
They use technology to break down barriers, eliminate silos, and build bridges… both figuratively and literally. Ready to get started?

Northern Micro and Microsoft Surface: Your Ally in Delivering Critical Services, No Matter What
November 10, 2020 | Ottawa, ON
In March 2020, nearly half a million federal public servants were sent home, including many front-line workers. This was at a time when Canadians needed their services more than ever.
IT priorities quickly shifted, and the race was on to equip hundreds of thousands of public servants to deliver services safely, remotely, and from home. The workplace changed overnight.
Having access to a vast wealth of professional, technical, and logistical resources, Northern Micro, a Converge Company, continues to guide the Government of Canada through this historic stage in its digital transformation.
Our robust partnerships with brands like Microsoft Surface have been instrumental. We have been partnered with Microsoft since the very beginning, in 1985. We are proud to be a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and among the most highly accredited partners in North America and in the top 1% worldwide. Learn more about our partnership with Microsoft Surface.
Together we were able to quickly procure, configure, deliver, install, and support hundreds of thousands of devices to numerous locations across Canada. This is just one example of how partners make us better and why we invest so much into maintaining them.
It should also be noted that As a Converge Company, our team includes some of the greatest minds in the industry. They have expertise in digital infrastructure, AI and advanced analytics, cloud computing, cyber security, edge computing, and much more. Connecting from coast-to-coast-to-coast with critical government services is just one of the many things they can do.
