Did You Know Avout is a Microsoft Partner?
Many people know us as Oracle ninjas, but we are also a Microsoft Certified Partner and part of the Microsoft Preferred Supplier program. We have access to a broad range of experts with niche skills and have supported multiple Microsoft projects, including providing resources directly to Microsoft.
One of our favorite stories is when a client came to us needing a Microsoft Dynamics AX expert for a large implementation… in Paris… in three days… who was also fluent in French. True to our motto, Avout provided the right staff, at the right time, at the right price. Contact us
to discuss your Microsoft needs.

Avout Racing is Off to a Solid Start this 2014 Season!
Avout Racing is sitting in close-second place in the Rocky Mountain Endurance team series points competition after three races.
For the Winter Park series, Avout Racing has over twenty athletes signed up for all or most of the six events. We are fielding two teams, both of whom crushed it in the first race, putting Avout Racing in first AND second places. Our racing canopy might be standing room only after these races!
As for our road racers, the season started in April with the Cherry Creek Time Trials. In May we raced the prestigious Koppenberg and Morgul Bismark. And on Father's Day, we were part of the 432 cyclists who climbed 3,200 feet over 11 miles, ending above treeline with spectacular views of Mt. Evans and Bierstadt in the Guanella Pass Hill Climb, sponsored by Avout Corporation. What do all these races have in common? Avout racers took home hardware!
Thank you to our sponsors who make this all possible. We look forward to doing them proud in the races to come.
