Speaking from the Seattle, USA Gavriella Schuster, corporate vice president, One Commercial Partner, Microsoft Corp said “We are honoured to recognise Adopt & Embrace of Australia as a Microsoft Global Partner of the Year. Adopt & Embrace has distinguished itself as a top partner, exemplifying the remarkable expertise and innovation we see in our Microsoft partner community to deliver transformative solutions.”
Awards were presented in several categories, with winners chosen from a set of more than 2,600 entrants from 115 countries worldwide. Adopt & Embrace was recognised for providing outstanding solutions and services as Global Partner of the Year and will be honoured among a global field of top Microsoft partners.
The Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards recognises Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions during the past year.
The award honours top Microsoft Partners in a global field who demonstrate excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions and support through their digital transformation journey.
Microsoft Partners had to highlight the significant impact their solutions have had on delivering the end-to-end teamwork vision and showcase how it has revolutionised the way customers collaborate using Office 365. Adopt & Embrace worked with brands like Amart Furniture and Place Real Estate to improve business processes, work practices, and communication using Yammer, Microsoft Teams and SharePoint. The result? Improved employee engagement, more efficient processes, and happier internal and external customers.
Paul Woods, Founder said ‘We thought it was incredible to have won a 2016 Microsoft Australia Partner of the Year award, less than 12 months after we opened our doors. But to now get recognition of the outcomes we helped our customers achieve on a global scale is a huge honour. This wouldn’t be possible without amazing organisations placing their trust in a small business like ours to support their people through their digital transformation journey.”
Adopt & Embrace is located at Brisbane’s Little Tokyo Two (within Brisbane City Council’s innovation space – The Capital), with a team distributed around the world in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Auckland and Los Angeles.
What makes Adopt & Embrace different from other partners offering Microsoft 365 solutions?
Most technology partners and service providers focus on technology, such as the new solution or system.
Adopt & Embrace doesn’t focus on technology. They focus on the people.
Paul Woods, founder of Adopt & Embrace says, “we see successful results and application of technology innovation by showing our clients how Microsoft 365 powered teamwork can positively impact their work life and their jobs.”
The Adopt & Embrace team then works with individuals, teams and organisations to improve work practices and business processes using technologies like Microsoft Teams, Yammer, SharePoint Online, OneDrive, OneNote Stream, Flow, Surface, and HoloLens. Connecting the C-level through to Firstline workers to achieve real business outcomes.
Adopt & Embrace leads by example, bringing the Modern Workplace to life.
With a distributed team that spans halfway around the world, Adopt & Embrace uses Microsoft 365 combined with a culture of transparency, collaboration and communication to enable work to be a thing they do, not a place they go.
As a member of the Modern Workplace Alliance, Adopt & Embrace partners with other customer-focused Microsoft partners – Insync Technology, Engage2, Versor and XR Elements to help make this vision a reality for organisations across Australia and New Zealand.
The 2018 Microsoft Global Partner of the Year awards will be presented at the Microsoft Inspire conference July 15-19 in Las Vegas, USA.
