Microsoft NZ calls for entries to 2016 Partner Awards
Posted on 10-Dec-2015 15:21. | Tags Filed under: News.

Entries are now open for Microsoft New Zealand’s 2016 Partner Awards, with the winners to be announced live at a gala evening in March next year.

Now in its ninth year, the annual Partner Awards exist to recognise excellence in the IT sector from companies that integrate Microsoft solutions into their products and services to accelerate innovation and go above and beyond customer expectations.

Brent Kendrick, Director of Small and Midmarket Solutions and Partner Group at Microsoft, says the Partner Awards celebrate the company’s best-in-class partners and the great work they do every day to optimise productivity and platform solutions for mutual customers.

“Whether you’re a finalist or a winner on the night, the Partner Awards bring prestige and respect in the IT community. We anticipate a high calibre of entries again this year, and encourage our partners to enter before Thursday, 11 February 2016,” says Kendrick.

Organisations have the option to submit more than one entry in any category and can be chosen as a finalist and/or winner in more than one category.
Kendrick continues: “We’re excited to introduce a new award category in 2016 – Innovative Software Product of the Year – which is all about recognising ISVs that have built an innovative product on the Microsoft stack which utilises the power of the cloud. It might not be an app though – it could be a service accessed over the internet which drives value for customers in a compelling way.”

For the 2016 awards, the ‘Pre-Sales Technical Specialist of the Year’ has been incorporated into the ‘Sales Specialist of the Year’ and Microsoft has introduced a ‘Partner Seller of the Year’ award.

Submissions for the Microsoft Partner Awards close on 11 February 2016, and finalists will be announced on Thursday, 3 March 2016. The winners will be announced at the evening event on Thursday, 31 March 2016 which will be held at The Langham in Auckland.
