Market Update – VMob Receives 2015 Partner of the Year Award at Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference.

VMob, an intelligent personalisation platform built as a software as a service (SaaS) model specifically for marketers, recently accepted the 2015 Microsoft Partner of the Year Award at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, held in Orlando July 12 - 16, 2015. This recognition caps off a highly successful appearance at the event, during which the company discussed its partnership with Microsoft in the opening keynote.

VMob CEO Scott Bradley was presented with Partner of the Year Award for the Cloud Platform: Application Innovation category during the awards luncheon on Monday, July 13. This prestigious award program recognises partners that have delivered exemplary solutions built upon Microsoft technologies, with winners chosen from a set of more than 2,300 entrants from 108 different countries worldwide. This year, Microsoft recognised partners in 43 categories that celebrate each of the core partner competencies, with winners such as VMob selected on their commitment to customers, their solution's market impact and exemplary use of Microsoft technologies.

Bradley commented, "VMob is committed to developing the industry-leading solutions that enable our clients to drive revenue through increased in-person sales, foot traffic, return visits and more; working with Microsoft is crucial to making that happen. We are thrilled to be recognised with this prestigious award, which highlights the enormous success we've had as a result of our aligned efforts with Microsoft, and we are honoured to be in such great company with the other winners."

"This year's award winners are among the most innovative and valuable our partner ecosystem has to offer. Therefore, it came as no surprise that VMob was named among that group as this year's winners of the 2015 Microsoft Partner of the Year Award for Cloud Platform: Application Innovation," said Phil Sorgen, Corporate Vice President, Worldwide Partner Group, Microsoft Corp. "We applaud VMob on this achievement and for the outstanding value it continues to provide for our mutual customers."

In addition to this high-profile recognition, the company played a prominent role in the Worldwide Partner Conference, being featured in the event's vision keynote. During this session, Bradley shared how his company's use of the Microsoft Azure and Power BI solutions has driven significant success for a global quick service restaurant client. As a result, the client has been able to increase customer loyalty, experience higher conversion rates and benefit from additional revenue streams.
