Perficient Wins Microsoft’s Messaging Partner of the Year Award

We’re excited to announce that Perficient has been named Microsoft’s 2017 Messaging Partner of the Year.
The award, which will be presented at Microsoft Inspire 2017, honors Perficient for proven expertise from on-premises to the cloud in planning, deployment, and management of Microsoft Exchange while helping customers lower IT costs, boost user productivity, and better manage risk with anywhere access to communications. Microsoft received more than 2,800 entries from 115 countries for the Partner of the Year awards. Winners were selected by a panel of judges from across Microsoft’s business practices.
Perficient was recognized for our work in upgrading the communications and productivity tools for a global financial services company, including full migration to the cloud for more than 50,000 Exchange users and 12,000 Skype for Business users worldwide. Perficient’s deployment of Office 365 and Skype for Business Online modernized the organization’s approach to collaboration, communication, and advanced productivity, providing flexibility for inclusion of future domestic and global acquisitions. They also now have the ability to accurately project and plan future global conferencing costs – saving time, resources, and money.
As a certified partner in all Microsoft cloud competencies, Perficient has migrated more than 4 million users to Exchange Online – starting even before its public launch. We are Microsoft’s top National Solution Provider for Office 365, with 240,000 seats deployed and 825,000 active Office 365 entitlements.
“The outstanding innovation and expertise the Microsoft partner community continues to provide is demonstrated by this year’s award winners,” said Ron Huddleston, corporate vice president, One Commercial Partner, Microsoft. “We applaud Perficient on achieving the 2017 Messaging Partner of the Year Award.”
In 2016, Perficient was designated Microsoft’s East Region National Solution Provider (NSP) Partner of the Year and Cloud Partner of the Year, Central Region NSP Partner of the Year, and West Region NSP Partner of the Year – the same honors it received in 2015. Together, the awards highlight Perficient’s capabilities in and successful implementations of Microsoft solutions nationwide. These solutions include cloud computing technologies such as Office 365, Microsoft Azure, Skype for Business Online, Yammer, SharePoint Online, Matter Center, and Sitecore.
“We are thrilled to be honored as Microsoft’s Messaging Partner of the Year,” said Matt McGillen, vice president of Perficient’s Microsoft national business group. “At Perficient, we understand how important messaging is to modern productivity. This award underscores our commitment to working with Microsoft to bring cloud-based and mobile-driven collaboration services and solutions to our clients while demonstrating our strengths as one of Microsoft’s top National Solution Providers.”
