Mobile Mentor named 2021 Microsoft Partner of the Year for modern endpoint management
Mobile Mentor won Microsoft's 2021 Global Partner of the Year Award for Modern Endpoint Management, the New Zealand-based company announced today.
The remote workforce solutions company was selected among a global pool of Microsoft partners, and was singled out by Microsoft especially for its work with the Nashville-based caregiving organisation, Alive Hospice.
Mobile Mentor's work with the hospice included enabling zero touch provisioning, a service that leverages Microsoft Intune to configure devices remotely without any manual effort. This enabled Alive Hospice's caregivers to attend to patients virtually during periods of the COVID-19 lockdown.
“Our team at Mobile Mentor is tremendously proud of what we've achieved with Alive Hospice,” says Mobile Mentor founder Denis O'Shea.
“It's humbling to know our work so profoundly impacted the lives of hundreds of vulnerable people who were isolated during the global pandemic.”
Mobile Mentor's CEO Daniel McCarthy says the Partner of the Year win was particularly significant as the company had only been a Microsoft partner for the past four years.
“Our application of Microsoft's technology demonstrates how socially impactful it can be to deploy modern endpoint management for our customers,” says McCarthy.
“The Partner of the Year Award is further acknowledgement of this and we're extremely grateful to have won this prestigious award amongst a group of such worthy competitors.”
Microsoft Australia chief partner officer Rachel Bondi says, “Mobile Mentor's mobile device management solutions are genuinely world-leading, deliver impact and value and are backed by exceptional service for customers around the world. I am delighted Mobile Mentor has been named a global category winner – it is richly deserved and I look forward to your continued success.
The Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards names Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered outstanding Microsoft-based solutions during the past year. Awards were classified in various categories, with winners this year chosen from more than 4,400 nominations across more than 100 countries worldwide. Mobile Mentor was awarded for providing outstanding solutions and services in Modern Endpoint Management.
Microsoft New Zealand partner director Matt Bostwick says the calibre of submissions from Kiwi Microsoft partners is a testament to the country's ability to ‘punch above our weight' on the global stage.
“I'm particularly thrilled about the New Zealand success in modern workplace and health solutions – these are areas where our technology combined with partner smarts and commitment can make such a huge impact for our clients, especially in a year of massive disruption,” he says.
“As more and more organisations have had to find new, smart and safe ways to work, to meet shifting customer expectations, and also to lay the digital foundations for future innovation, it's been deeply impressive to see the impact our partners are having across Aotearoa and the world.
