The finalists for Microsoft’s 14th annual Microsoft New Zealand Partner Awards, announced today, feature some of the most innovative tech companies in Aotearoa going above and beyond to support their customers.

Each finalist, selected from Microsoft’s thriving ecosystem of local business partners throughout the country, has been chosen for its ability to empower customers through the use of innovative Microsoft technology. In a year that’s seen more than the usual twists and turns, Microsoft’s partners have continued to deliver exceptional work for their customers, helping to keep NZ Inc up and running, and boosting health outcomes, sustainability, productivity and equitable access to vital services.

“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. 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. These finalists really push themselves to create innovative solutions that drive lasting and meaningful benefits for customers,” says Matt Bostwick, Partner Director at Microsoft NZ.

“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. The high quality of submissions has made the judging process tougher than ever. All of the finalists this year deserve to be celebrated and I’d like to extend my congratulations to each and every one of them and wish them all the best for the Awards.”

There are 11 categories in this year’s Awards, including Security, Modern Work, Data and AI, Digital and Application Innovation, Azure Migrate, Business Applications, Surface, Channel Development, Cloud for Good, SaaS and Emerging SaaS.

Covid requirements mean there will not be an in-person awards event this year. Instead, there will be a digital announcement of winners on Monday 6th December 2021. Further information on the Awards is available at www.msnzpartnerawards.co.nz.
