Triple-digit NZ Lync growth key to MHA Cloud Computing's Microsoft success

“Throughout 2014, we have seen triple digit growth in our New Zealand hosted Lync solution."

MHA Cloud Computing is celebrating this week, after taking out the Cloud Hosting award at the Microsoft NZ 2015 Partner of the Year Awards.

As reported first by Reseller News, the rising company took out the top honour amidst strong competition from fellow industry players SoftSource and OneNet.

“Winning the partner of the year award is a fantastic achievement for MHA, the team has worked incredibly hard over the past 12 months and it’s great to be recognised for our innovation and partnership," says Colin Williams, General Manager, MHA Computing.

“Throughout 2014, we have seen triple digit growth in our New Zealand hosted Lync solution.

"This is being enjoyed by all sorts of businesses that were previously unable to afford the cost and complexity of owning Lync infrastructure, we expect this strong growth to continue through 2015."

According to Williams, MHA differentiates from traditional Managed Service Providers.

The majority of old school IT company’s business models are based on “Reinventing Intellectual Property” for each customer while Williams says MHA’s flagship Managed Desktop service removes the need for costly architecture, hardware, support and complex WANs – MHA eliminates the ‘IT IP’ cost with a fully hosted, fully managed desktop.

Microsoft’s recent launch of Remote Desktop Services in Azure in America, and testing Skype for Business calling in Office 365 further validates the MHA solution Portfolio.

Williams says MHA offers a "home grown version" of Azure Remote Desktop Services and Skype for Business, safely in New Zealand that is comparable to what the best in the market are offering in America.

In congratulating all finalists and winners, Brent Kendrick, Microsoft New Zealand’s SMB and Partner Director, noted the impressive range of entries for the 2015 Awards, which saw a significant increase in the number of partners who had never competed before.

“MHA demonstrated leadership in an innovative and positive partnership with Microsoft, clearly aligning its business strategy with Microsoft's cloud transformation, incorporating Office 365, Azure and Lync solutions as part of their service offering,” Kendrick adds.

“MHA's video case study on FreshMax provides a refreshing insight to their positive and successful working relationship with their customers.”

MHA worked closely with Microsoft throughout 2014, this included supporting the Microsoft Modern Biz roadshow across New Zealand at six events, and in providing real-world solutions that were aligned with Microsoft’s strategy and vision.
