New partner on the block Fusion5 debuted in style at the Microsoft New Zealand Partner Awards last month, walking away with the Customer Relationship Management Partner of the Year award for 2016.
As reported by Reseller News, Fusion5 has been recognised by Microsoft for excelling in providing innovative and unique sales, services, solutions, and/or support based on Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
“We are delighted to have so quickly made our mark as a Microsoft partner,” says Rebecca Tohill, CEO, Fusion5.
“It vindicates our decision to wholeheartedly invest in Microsoft Dynamics CRM, assures our customers they are in excellent hands, and quickly positions us as a market leader.”
Tohill says key to the win was demonstrating that the customer, in this case Lincoln University, achieved significant business benefits from their Microsoft Dynamics CRM investments.
Fusion5’s winning MyLync project delivered Lincoln University a unified student enrolment portal, believed to be unique in New Zealand’s university ecosystem.
The completion of the first stage of the project has already realised substantial increases in student enrolments as well as measurable administration efficiencies.
While Fusion5 may be new to the world of Microsoft Dynamics CRM, its award-winning team is not.
Fusion5’s recent acquisition of Koorb Consulting’s Dynamics CRM and SharePoint practices brought on board a highly experienced team with a trail of industry wins behind them.
The overall acquisition added close to 30 people to Fusion5’s 250 staff headcount, and more than 80 companies to an already 700 strong customer list - these new customers included AUT, Barnardos, Farmlands, Ballance Agri-Nutrients, Independent Liquor and of course, Lincoln University.
Fusion5 has a long pedigree in the world of CRM, and most recently was named worldwide as Aptean’s Partner of the Year for its success in developing Pivotal CRM to suit specific industry needs.
“Our Dynamics CRM practice is set to consolidate our position as a leading CRM partner in New Zealand,” adds Sven Martin, Director of CX/CRM, Fusion5.
“We’re extremely proud of our team, and this award just confirmed what we, our customers and Microsoft already knew about their ability to deliver outstanding projects.”
