AxizWorkgroup: Distribution Partner of the Year for 2016
On the 24th August 2016, during the Microsoft Partner Network Awards held at the Gallagher Convention Centre, AxizWorkgroup was awarded the Distribution Partner of the Year for FY16.
This annual event is aimed at recognising the contributions and effort of all Microsoft partners and distributors in South Africa. Awards are handed to those who have excelled in delivering Microsoft solutions over Microsoft’s fiscal year 2016, which spanned from 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2016.
Microsoft takes into account the success of partners in the fields of competencies, transformation, sales excellence and customer experience in order to present partners with awards that highlight the great work done in each of these sectors.
“I am delighted at this award and as this is the second year in a row winning this one for our company, it is even more special”, said Traci Maynard, Microsoft Executive at AxizWorkgroup.
AxizWorkgroup was formed in April 2011 when Axiz – a leading hardware distributor – and Workgroup – a powerful software distributor – joined forces to take their expertise and best-of-breed practices to the African market.
Axiz, a leading distributor of world class hardware products as well as its own branded range, opened its doors in 1989. The company’s commitment to a strict channel-only policy was extended into the merger. Workgroup was also established in 1989 when it was appointed as the first Microsoft distributor in South Africa.
Workgroup was well known within the South African IT market as a successful specialist knowledge distributor of software and value-based hardware products. Workgroup’s core strength was rooted in being able to predict and integrate with its vendors and resellers’ needs. Known for offering extensive dealer reach with on-going and consistent market penetration, Workgroup brought this key factor into the new entity.
As a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Pinnacle Holdings Group of Companies, the AxizWorkgroup joint entity is positioned to powerfully contribute to the group vision to be the most respected provider of ICT products and services to the African continent based on superior domain knowledge underscored by unparalleled service commitment.read more
