Microsoft aligns awards processes to promote global recognition

Microsoft has more closely aligned the dates of its local awards with the company’s global partner awards, in a bid to get more partners recognised on the international stage.

Entries opened for the local awards about two weeks ago, while last year entries opened at the end of April. Partners have until 2 June to make submissions for the local awards, and 3 April for the global awards.

“We want the world-class work done by our New Zealand partners to be exhibited on a global scale, and the changes we have made to the programme make this more feasible,” says partner director Brent Colbert. “We hope to see many of the past local winners take the stage in Washington DC this year. “

Microsoft is targeting about 25 local entries in the international awards, presented during the Worldwide Partner Conference in the US in July. Local awards will be presented at an event in August.

Lexel Systems plans to enter the global awards this year, and CEO Noel Simpson says it has identified at least one project, maybe two, the company could enter in the global awards. It hasn’t entered the global awards before, though last year the company was a runner up in the local Reseller of the Year category.

Auldhouse general manager Melanie Hobcraft says it will probably submit two entries in the global awards. It has entered in previous years.
