|Gen-i took home three awards, including Reseller of the Year, at the 2011 Microsoft New Zealand Partner Awards on Thursday night.
Matt Tucker of Les Mills was named Partners' Choice CIO of the Year, and software developer GreenButton went home with three awards and Express Data edged out Ingram Micro for the Distributor of the Year award.
Hundreds of people gathered for the awards presentation at the Viaduct Events Centre in Auckland.
Twenty three award-winners were announced, across four sub-categories: solutions, individual awards, partner awards and supreme awards.
“This night is always very special as it gives us an opportunity to recognise the fantastic work our partners develop for their clients over the year. It was very exciting to see a number of first-time entries this year, and as usual the high calibre of entries certainly made the judging process very difficult," says Chris Ichter, director small, midmarket solutions & partners group for Microsoft, in a statement released Thursday night by Microsoft.
"I would like to congratulate all of the winners tonight, and also take the time to thank all of our partners, who consistently develop creative and innovative solutions for New Zealand organisations.”
