24 Apr 17

Australia’s GCITS has taken out a key award at Ingram Micro’s Cloud Partner Awards, held last week in Arizona.

The Gold Coast Microsoft partner, which is part of the Ozbizweb Group, won the Marketplace Award for Asia Pacific.

“As a key Ingram Micro Cloud partner, GCITS leveraged Microsoft’s CSP program to build its own IP as well as the Tourism in the Cloud solution, resulting in 28 new customers in only three months,” Ingram Micro says.

The annual awards are focused on Ingram Micro’s Cloud Marketplace, with the distributor saying the awards recognise partners who have demonstrated an ‘unparalleled commitment to reinventing the customer experience in the connected economy and driving new cloud capabilities through the Cloud Marketplace’.

Nemesh Davé, Ingram Micro Global Cloud executive vice president, says: “Cloud is changing everything, but that disruption provides the opportunity to rise above.”

Davé says the winners at this year’s awards were recognised ‘for their ability to achieve performance excellence, whether through sales achievements, service delivery or innovation, in a rapidly changing and challenging marketplace’.

“They should be proud of their outstanding achievements,” he says.

“These partners have all demonstrated the ability to help end users transform digitally using cloud technologies,” Ingram Micro says.

Overall cloud business growth, peer-to-peer leadership and level of engagement and alignment with Ingram Micro are also considered in the judging.
