Fusion5 achieves award double-whammy at Microsoft Inspire

Fusion5 achieves award double-whammy at Microsoft Inspire

WELLINGTON, NZ – 24 July 2017 - After dedicating 17 months to building up an impressive Microsoft Dynamics 365 practice from ground zero, Australasian business solutions company, Fusion5, has added two coveted Microsoft awards to their collection.

Recognition of their outstanding achievements came during Microsoft Inspire (formerly Microsoft WPC), the annual premier partner event, which took place July 9-13, 2017 in Washington, D.C.

Fusion5 received the 2016/2017 Microsoft Dynamics Services Partner of the Year for Asia Pacific for their ability to demonstrate exceptional business outcomes. The company impressed the award panel with the way it optimised Microsoft Dynamics to deliver innovative solutions that exceed customer expectations and surpass business goals. Alongside regional winners from Canada, China, Central and Eastern Europe, France, Germany, India, Japan, Latin America, Middle East and Africa, the United States, the United Kingdom and Western Europe, Fusion5 demonstrated they are among the best in the world at delivering solutions that meet diverse customer needs and outstanding sales performance through their technological expertise on Microsoft Dynamics products and services.

The second major achievement for Fusion5 was entering the ranks of the prestigious 2017/2018 Inner Circle for Microsoft Dynamics. Membership of this elite group is based on sales achievements that place Fusion5 in the top echelon of the Microsoft global network of partners. Inner Circle members are recognised for a higher standard of excellence by delivering valuable and innovative solutions that help organisations achieve increased success.

Rebecca Tohill, Chief Executive and founder of Fusion5, says the two awards are the result of making a serious level of investment in exceptional people, while backing them up with a rock-solid delivery and support process. “We’ve made a huge commitment to not only becoming a Microsoft partner, but to being an outstanding one. Our customers understand the value proposition of the Microsoft solutions we deliver, and we’re proud to have built a team of professionals they can count on to deliver strong business results.”

Fusion5 launched their Microsoft practice in February 2016 with the purchase of an existing Dynamics CRM and SharePoint business. Entering the market with over 80 customers and around 30 consultants, a highly selective recruitment process and a merger with another technology solutions company saw their team of dedicated Microsoft consultants and developers grow to 70 by mid-2017. In their first year, Fusion5 won the Microsoft New Zealand CRM Partner of the Year Award. The company recently added Dynamics 365 for Operations and Finance expertise to their Microsoft practice to support demand in both New Zealand and Australia.
