The finalists for Microsoft’s annual New Zealand partner awards, announced today, faced a whole new set of challenges in 2021.

In a year that’s seen more than the usual twists and turns, Microsoft’s partners continued to deliver exceptional work for their customers, the company said.

“While 2021 has brought a whole new set of challenges to the table, our partners have demonstrated a strong sense of resilience and determination to rise above," said Matt Bostwick, partner director at Microsoft NZ. 

"When the judges select the finalists for these awards, they look for partners that demonstrate they don’t just view each challenge as a task to be done, but as an opportunity to learn more about their customers."

The finalists were, therefore, chosen for their ability to empower customers through the use of Microsoft technology. 

“We were delighted to find so many of our partners share the same vision, looking above and beyond the immediate problem at hand to drive real change across their customers’ organisations," Bostwick said.
