Finally, some good news to come out of 2020! It’s no shock that 2020 has been peppered with unprecedented challenges for everyone across the globe, so it’s exciting to announce some positive news for a change. Microsoft recently announced the winners for the 2020 Microsoft US Partner Award and Calsoft sits as the top partner in the United States and top 5 in the world for Business Central!
What is the Microsoft US Partner Award?
Microsoft Partner of the Year award was originally created to recognize partners around the globe that demonstrate leadership and high performance. Because of the U.S.’s overwhelming contributions to the Microsoft portfolio, Microsoft spun off a new award that shines a spotlight solely on U.S. specific partner impact. The Microsoft US Partner Award highlights U.S. partners who are exceptional in their categories and are leaders among the 100,000 partners or so that exist in the U.S.
The program was designed to recognize outstanding work for partners nationwide. The MSUS Partner Award program complements the Microsoft Partner of the Year program, and gives partners an opportunity to showcase their work alongside other qualified U.S. partners, so it’s great to be nominated and even better to be champion a category.
This year, for the global Partner of the Year Award for Business Central, Microsoft chose one winner from Sweden and three finalists (from Netherlands, Australia, and UK). In the U.S., they selected just one partner for the Business Central award – Calsoft!
This was no easy task and we are proud of all the effort we dedicated to achieving this award, especially in a year like 2020.
Customer Impact & Solution Innovation
For starters, the nomination pool was very competitive and selecting winners is quite challenging, according to Microsoft.
Winners are selected based on their commitment to customers, the impact of their solutions, and the exemplary use of Microsoft technologies. In a letter from David Willis, Corporate Vice President, he said:
“You (Calsoft) has shown leadership in customer impact, solution innovation, deployment and exceptional use of advanced features in Microsoft technologies over the past year. Your work to enable our mutual customers to achieve more shows your dedication to their success and stands out as a model to other US Partners.”
