We’re pleased to congratulate SoftwareONE as the 2016 Microsoft Volume Licensing Partner of the Year, an award that recognizes partners who consistently innovate through Volume Licensing solutions and services, and provide the highest levels of customer service.
Globally headquartered in Stans, Switzerland with customers in 145 countries, SoftwareONE helps clients manage all aspects of their software portfolio, striving to enable customers’ transformation to the cloud.
As one of Microsoft's largest volume licensing partners worldwide, SoftwareONE grew its core volume licensing business by more than 25% over the past year, while also leading in the transformation to the cloud. Its cloud business grew faster than the market across all segments and products like Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Azure, and Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite.
“It’s great to see our services and solution led approach recognized by Microsoft. SoftwareONE helps clients worldwide drive innovation and business value within their software portfolio. This year we were excited to launch the latest version of our platform, PyraCloud, to transform and deliver better insights to customers for both their on-premise spend and cloud consumption. This in turn has driven greater simplicity, allowing our joint customers to move to the cloud faster and with greater value,” said Neil Lomax, President North America & EVP WW Sales Strategy, SoftwareONE.
SoftwareONE's early, deep adoption of Microsoft modern licensing options is facilitating future-oriented discussions with customers.
“This year’s winner has been a strong partner in Microsoft’s journey to modern licensing,” said Richard Smith, General Manager, Microsoft Worldwide Licensing and Pricing. “SoftwareONE’s leadership in delivering Microsoft solutions through simpler, flexible licensing options is helping our joint customers accelerate their digital transformation.”
Each year, the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) Awards program celebrates top Microsoft partners that are solving customer challenges with creative technology solutions. Strong partnerships with volume licensing partners are crucial to Microsoft’s business strategy and key to driving business results.
Award winners and finalists, chosen from nominations from around the world, will be recognized at the 2016 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, taking place July 10-14, 2016, in Toronto, Canada.
