New Signature is pleased to announce it has been named the 2014 Microsoft United States Partner of the Year. This top honor among all Microsoft partners in the United States was earned by demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of Microsoft services and devices.
“New Signature has achieved so much already this year, including being named by Microsoft as one of the elite National Systems Integrators, but to be named the U.S. Partner of the Year is an enormous accomplishment and the highest honor.” said Christopher Hertz, New Signature’s CEO. “This award was truly earned by New Signature’s exceptional team of Microsoft experts whose dedication to customer experience and technical excellence is unparalleled. Every day our team provides compelling insights with real commercial value to our customers, and challenges our customers to achieve the highest return with the quickest rate of return on their investment in Microsoft.”
New Signature has worked with hundreds of customers to deploy the rich capabilities of Office 365, Azure, Power BI, Dynamics CRM Online, Windows Intune, and Yammer. Once deployed, these services have empowered IT professionals to refocus their efforts on high value activities and business professionals to work smarter and faster with greater mobility and security.
“The next decade will be an exciting time to be a Microsoft customer, especially those companies committed to driving innovation and transformation. I can firmly state that New Signature is committed to innovation and to transformation, and we are looking forward to helping our customers use Microsoft cloud services and devices to win the future,” stated New Signature President David Geevaratne.
Delivering an amazing experience to customers, partners, colleagues, vendors and the greater community is New Signature’s founding mandate and has powered New Signature’s success. Over the last decade, New Signature has sustained an annual average growth rate of 50%. This robust growth even during trying economic times demonstrates the power of New Signature’s customer experience focused business model. This award demonstrates that New Signature has created a highly successful approach to doing business. An approach that is made even more important in the new era of people-first cloud computing.
