17 Mar 17

There were a number of partners recognised yesterday in the Microsoft New Zealand Partner Awards finalist list – the team at Lucidity say they’re delighted to be among them.

On its 10th anniversary, the Partner Awards are to be held in April.

Lucidity has been named a finalist for the Managed Service of the Year Award, and the company says it is honoured to be chosen among a field of top Microsoft partners in New Zealand for demonstrating excellence in implementation of managed service customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.

General manager at Lucidity, Colin Williams says the nomination is an accolade for their team of dedicated people.

“We are delighted to be recognised by Microsoft for our achievement in delivering and supporting Microsoft based solutions for our customers,” says Colin Williams, general manager, Lucidity.

“We are committed to working closely with Microsoft and will continue to focus on intelligent cloud solutions that bring together the very best Microsoft technologies to benefit our customers and provide them with a competitive advantage and business success.”

According to Microsoft, the Managed Service Partner of the Year Award acknowledges a partner who demonstrates solution innovation and exemplary commitment to engaging with Microsoft and their own customers.

This includes showing how the solution provided has dramatically transformed a customer’s server infrastructure, resulting in higher levels of scalability, availability, and reliability, reduced IT labour or hardware costs, or streamlined overall operational efficiency.

To make the cut, Lucidity backed their nomination with a customer case study with Seating to Go, a specialist wheelchair and seating assessment, repair and training service.

The submission demonstrates how the business connected with CT Business Solutions, a Hamilton based ICT services provider and Microsoft Partner, to jointly deliver a mobile first, cloud first IT solution using Microsoft technologies running on Lucidity’s Managed Desktop platform.
