Intervate has won the related Microsoft Information Worker category award for the previous five consecutive years and scooped the Portals and Collaboration, and Content Management awards when the category was split in 2011. This year, Intervate made a clean sweep of the Microsoft SharePoint Server related awards with the addition of the Digital Marketing award for website and search solutions.

The Microsoft Partner Network 2012 Awards recognise partners in South Africa that have excelled in delivering Microsoft solutions over Microsoft’s fiscal year 2012. The criteria for the different awards are divided into six category areas, namely winning new customers, driving customer satisfaction, growing the business, innovation, enabling people and bonus factors. Companies are assessed according to criteria such as business growth, successful project implementations, customer satisfaction, innovativeness, strategic alignment with Microsoft and investments into training and skills development.

The Microsoft Partner Network Awards are highly regarded by Microsoft and partners and as such, the process of awarding winners and finalists is a stringent and serious one.

Commenting on Intervate’s award results, Uriel Rootshtain, Information Worker Lead at Microsoft SA says: “These awards attest to our longstanding 14 year partnership with Intervate and the significant value that the relationship has delivered to our customers and the Microsoft brand in general. The wins are well-deserved recognition of Intervate’s partnership, track record and market achievements”.

Intervate continues to be the leading Microsoft SharePoint solution provider in South Africa and will continue to partner with clients to maximise the benefits they derive from their investment in the Microsoft platform.
