The Microsoft Country Partner of the Year Award honours partners at a country level that have demonstrated business excellence in delivering Microsoft solutions to customers over the past year. This award recognises Intervate as the South African Microsoft partner that has developed solutions showcasing innovation and business impact, by providing outstanding value for customers.

Collin Govender, vice-president for systems integration at T-Systems in South Africa, said, “Since our acquisition of the company, they have proven that their passion for the customer and understanding of the market, coupled with our international reach and experience, are an ideal match. Being recognised as the Country Partner of the Year for South Africa, and as a finalist for the 2015 Microsoft Public Sector: CityNext Partner of the Year Award demonstrates their ability to innovate and deliver solutions that help customers transform their business.”

The Microsoft CityNext Partner of the Year Award recognises partners who build solutions using Microsoft technology to address pressing challenges for urban spaces. As a finalist in this category, Intervate has been recognised for the impact of its Johannesburg Roads Agency (JRA) Find and Fix app. The app allows citizens to report road issues like potholes and helps the JRA expedite the resolution process, thereby improving service delivery.

Using the example of the Find and Fix app, Zoaib Hoosen, managing director of Microsoft SA, said, “Intervate is a worthy winner of this award because the company is consistently offering innovative and locally relevant solutions for our customers.

The awards will be handed over on 15 July 2015 at Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference in Orlando, Florida, United States of America.
