Posted on 25-Feb-2015 19:46 | Tags Filed under: News


Microsoft New Zealand announced today the finalists for the 2015 Microsoft Partner Awards. Now in its eighth year, the annual Partner Awards exists to recognise excellence in the IT sector from those companies that integrate Microsoft solutions into their products and services to accelerate innovation and go above and beyond customer expectations.

Brent Kendrick, Microsoft New Zealand’s SMB and Partner Lead, says there was an impressive range of entries for the 2015 Awards, with a significant increase in new partners who have never competed before pitching their business solutions for consideration.

“The quality of entries this year has been truly outstanding, and shows the extent to which partners have been joining Microsoft on our journey of transformation towards becoming the productivity and platform company for a mobile-first, cloud first world,” he says.

Kendrick congratulated all finalists, and says he looks forward to seeing them at the black tie gala event to be held on 19 March. The event is open to any and all businesses to attend, and tickets can be purchased through the Partner Awards web site.
