A New Era unfolds as Kiwi ICT firm receives global Microsoft recognition

“Microsoft’s selection of New Era as a global finalist in a very competitive market is an affirmation that our people and processes are truly world class."

New Zealand ICT provider New Era has been named a finalist in the 2015 Microsoft Public Sector: Education Partner of the Year Award.

The Auckland-based company was honoured amongst a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.

“Microsoft’s selection of New Era as a global finalist in a very competitive market is an affirmation that our people and processes are truly world class,” says Anthony Church, managing director, New Era.

New Era provides network and ICT support and services, strategic planning and professional development to the New Zealand education sector from early childhood organisations to tertiary institutions.

Working solely within the education market with a number of senior personnel coming from a background in teaching, through its nationwide channel, New Era currently services over 900 schools across New Zealand.

“We were named Microsoft Education Partner of the Year in New Zealand in March as a result of our focus on the cloud and Microsoft’s range of innovative products including Office 365, the hyper-v virtualisation platform and Lync,” Church adds.

“Our adoption of these technologies gives our education clients a world-class line up of solutions and this recognition gives them the confidence that their Microsoft solutions will be implemented and supported by some of the best technical people in the world.”

Awards were presented in several categories, with winners chosen from a set of more than 2,300 entrants from 108 different countries worldwide. New Era was recognised for providing outstanding solutions and services in Education.

“Microsoft’s success as a company is dependent upon our ecosystem of great partners, and New Era is a shining example of the kind of innovation our partners continue to drive year after year,” adds Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group, Microsoft.

“We are pleased to recognise New Era for being selected as a finalist of the 2015 Microsoft Public Sector: Education Partner of the Year award and for demonstrating excellence in providing value to our mutual customers.”

Sorgen says the Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards recognise Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions during the past year.
