Provoke’s Partner Solution award was decided among the winners of all 12 categories at the awards, while all small-business category winners were eligible for the Small Business Partner Solution award won by Xero.

Provoke also won the Business Productivity Solution award, beating finalists Polymedia and HP, and was a finalist in the Microsoft Technology Advocates category.

Xero meanwhile pipped HP and Tuatara Technology to win the Software Solution of the Year category.

The winners of the other categories are:

• Infrastructure Solution of the Year: Axon Computer Systems
