At Microsoft Inspire, Microsoft recognizes partners who have gone above and beyond. We’re thrilled to announce that at this year’s conference in Washington, D.C., Microsoft has honored Perficient with the following top awards: Global Messaging Partner of the Year, U.S. EPG Office 365 Consumption Partner of the Year, and Performance Partner of the Year.
The Global Messaging Partner of the Year award honors Perficient’s success 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.
