Enterprise Information Management (EIM) solution provider Intervate, a T-Systems company, is proud to announce that it has been recognised with multiple accolades at the 2014 Microsoft Partner Network, Partner of the Year Awards and gala dinner, held at the Inanda Club in Sandton, Johannesburg on 2 October 2014. The annual awards ceremony honours Microsoft partners for delivering innovative solutions that directly address customer challenges.
Intervate won a total of six awards. Including: Collaboration and Content Partner of the Year; Application Development Partner of the Year; Industry Partner of the Year – Public Sector; Industry Partner of the Year – Commercial; and Services Partner of the Year. In recognition of this achievement, the company was also presented with the prestigious Managing Director's Partner Award, the highest accolade awarded at the event.
"The Collaboration and Content Partner of the Year is a highly contested award, and winning it is a high accolade. We are proud to have come out on top in this category for the eighth year in a row, as this is our core line of business. We are also pleased to have walked away with the Application Development Partner of the Year Award – a first for Intervate – as this is a milestone in the transformation of our business to delivering meaningful and impactful solutions that leverage cloud and mobility to transform the user experience. Receiving the Managing Director's Partner Award was an incredible tip of the hat to our team's achievements for the year," says Lionel Moyal, Managing Director of Intervate.
The winners were selected based on their dedication to innovation and use of Microsoft technologies to provide solutions for their customers' needs.
This year's awards were broken down into Business Awards, Competency Awards, Cloud Awards and Application Awards, each of which contained a number of different categories. In each of the various categories, Microsoft partners need to prove their success in winning new customers, driving customer satisfaction, growing the business, showing innovation and enabling people. Intervate achieved awards across the different categories, effectively demonstrating its success as a multi-disciplinary technology focused organisation with a focus on improving the customer experience.
"The way we as consumers interact with the world has been revolutionised by the emergence of apps, but this has not yet filtered through effectively into the enterprise space. Intervate focuses on harnessing technology such as apps and cloud environments to improve productivity and deliver great user experiences in the customer, enterprise or public sector spaces," says Moyal.
The Application Development Partner of the Year acknowledges an app built for the Windows 8 platform that has proven successful at fulfilling Microsoft's awards criteria. Intervate was nominated and awarded based on its groundbreaking Find & Fix app for the Johannesburg Roads Agency, the first of its kind in the whole of the southern hemisphere.
"These awards serve as an acknowledgement that we are delivering value to our customers and our partners. We wish to thank Microsoft as well as other Microsoft partners for fostering a successful ecosystem of collaboration that inspires us to deliver great solutions," Moyal concludes.
