Innovative partners in the spotlight with Microsoft awards

31 August 2015 – Gold Coast, Australia: The achievements of Microsoft’s Australian partners over the past year have been recognised through a number of prestigious awards announced today at the 2015 Microsoft Australia Partner Conference.

The annual conference provides an opportunity for Microsoft partners to network, learn and be inspired by the successes of their compatriots. This year, more than 1,000 partners from across Australia joined the four-day gathering, with Microsoft Australia Managing Director, Pip Marlow opening the conference.

The awards showcased partners delivering innovative solutions and services to customers, with many embracing Microsoft’s cloud solutions which are transforming businesses worldwide.

With awards in 17 categories, the winners were chosen from more than 170 nominations. With a team of more than 11,000 partners in Australia working to help our customers grow and transform their businesses, it was a competitive field.

“Microsoft and its partners’ success is completely intertwined. Our partners’ success is our success,” Ms Marlow said. “These are really tightly contested awards and each of the winners should feel incredibly proud of their achievements. They highlight a commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction through the use of services like Azure, Office 365 and CRM Online.

“Congratulations to all the winners and finalists in the awards. I look forward to more success in what promises to be an even more exciting year ahead.”

The internationally-successful IT company, Readify was also recognised as the winner of the Australia Country Partner of the Year, a global award which was previously announced at the Worldwide Partner Conference held in Orlando, Florida, last month.
