On July 18, we got the great news that our longtime Digital Workplace software provider Powell Software had just won two prestigious Microsoft 2022 awards: a Partner of the Year Award and a Women Role Model Award. Here are the details of these well-deserved recognitions:
“Microsoft Partner of the Year” for the first time ever!
The biggest news: Powell Software won the Microsoft Partner of the Year award in the Modern Work category for the first time. This award is the result of a strategic partnership Powell initiated with Microsoft several years ago, a relationship based on 3 fundamental pillars:
- Product roadmap and best-in-class technology developed with Microsoft engineering.
- An innovative and unique go-to-market between Microsoft 365 and the Powell Software platform.
- A growing pipeline with more and more market maker agreements signed hand-in-hand with Microsoft vendors.
In Powell’s words,
“We are honored to win the Microsoft Partner of the Year/Modern Work 2022 Award, thanks to our close collaboration with Microsoft France. Our partnership rests on a strategic roadmap, technology development, innovative go-to-market strategies, and a strong P2P program with over 50 service partners worldwide. We are proud to recognize that our partnership with the Microsoft ecosystem largely drives Powell Software’s growth.”
Emilie Bonnin, Technology Role Model Award Winner
Powell technical architect and technical support team manager Emilie Bonnin took home the award for Technology Role Model in the Women Role Model Awards 2022. Emilie was selected from a group of 13 inspiring female role models. Powell’s news release on Emile’s award proclaimed, “She is leading the way for future generations of women to enter the tech world and create the change we want to see. We couldn’t be more proud!”
