Market Update – Microsoft Partner Awards
Mobile personalisation specialist VMob has received high accolades from Microsoft on the national and international stages this month.
Last night VMob was honoured with the highly contested Rising Star Award at the New Zealand Microsoft Partner Awards in Auckland.
The New Zealand partner awards recognise Microsoft technology partners for innovative use of Microsoft technologies, with a particular focus on partners who are driving measurable improvement in their clients' business.
This year was the biggest year in the history of the New Zealand Partner Awards, with over 100 companies competing for 19 awards. The Rising Star Award won by VMob is a new category added this year, recognising new and innovative companies that are already making a big difference to both their clients and to Microsoft’s business.
The judges particularly commended VMob on not only its impressive list of big name international clients including McDonald’s, 7-Eleven and Budweiser, but also the way the company drives highly measurable ROI in those businesses.
Earlier this month VMob also received Microsoft's Platinum Partner Award at the APAC Partner Awards in Vietnam, in recognition of the company's outstanding performance as a regional provider on the world stage. On the back of these successes in the national and regional awards, VMob has been selected to compete for the International Partner Awards, which will be announced at the World-wide Partner Conference in Florida later this year.
VMob and Microsoft have a strong working relationship and these awards are a testament to the impact the company is making within the Microsoft organisation. VMob has also been collaborating with Microsoft at a number of worldwide events, including their CIO summit at the company's Redmond campus this week.
VMob CEO Scott Bradley commented from Redmond, Washington, where he was attending the CIO summit: “We’re thrilled to have won these awards. It not only speaks to the value of our partnership, but also gives a real sense of validation when a global technology leader like Microsoft awards you so highly amongst so many other great software solutions.”
