IT’S A NEW WORLD. BUT WE’RE STILL WORLD-BEATERS
You might remember us celebrating this time last year, when we were crowned Microsoft’s 2019 Dynamics 365 Business Central Partner of the Year. Becoming the world number one for our excellence in innovation and implementation of Business Central, the cloud-based business management solution – this was a huge achievement for us.
Coming first out of 2,900 entries from 115 countries around the world, it was a big deal for us – and our clients. Well a lot has changed in the world and for businesses in the last year, but one thing hasn’t… our world-beating team is still, well, world beating!
Now, for 2020 we’ve got the title to prove it once more! We’re delighted to announce that we’ve been named as the finalist for the 2020 Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Partner of the Year Award.
Microsoft received a whopping 3,500 entries, from 126 countries, this year, so the competition was even stiffer than in 2019. And with over 25,000 Microsoft Partners in the UK alone, being a global finalist, and a named award winner 2 years in a row puts us in a very select group of award winners.
In 2019 the award was client focused, based on our KickStart process that allowed business to switch to Business Central quickly and easily, with a cost effective, rapid deployment MVP build of Business Central.
In 2020, it’s all testament to the success of Dynamics Angels – our global P2P (Partner 2 Partner) program. By building an ever-growing worldwide network of Partners – providing a standard fixed price, outcome, deployment, support packs and marketing, with technology that enables non-dynamics Partners to deliver the entire process – we’ve been able to raise the bar again.
Now Dynamics Angels gives Microsoft Partners around the globe the ability to help businesses switch to Business Central as part of a global partnership model.
David Warner, Microsoft One Commercial Partner Team, said:
“ It’s been a wonderful experience working with the CP IT team this past year as they strategically expanded their business from overseas, setting up a U.S. operation. They have quickly made an impact in the U.S. market, bringing an innovative go to market strategy that’s changing the way partners and customers sell, buy, and manage Business Central.
I’m proud to have played a role in their expansion, and excited to see what’s next with CP IT in the years ahead! ”
Vicky Critchley, CPIT COO, said:
“ We’re delighted to be globally recognised for our Business Central offering again – especially as it’s almost unprecedented (can we use that word yet?) for a Partner to be named two years in a row. For me, that shows we’ve got something special, and the team have done an amazing job bringing Dynamics Angels to life and keeping us right at the top of our field.
Now, it’s time to focus on the next evolution, because three years in a row has a nice ring to it. ”
Robert Pope, Dynamics Angels Global Channel Director, said:
“ Microsoft World Partner of the Year Finalist – Wow, just Wow – that is an amazing validation of the model. Dynamics Angels builds on the success that CPIT had in 2018/19 with opening up the routes to market for Dynamics. What started with reach and scale, built on fixed price/outcome solutions, has evolved into a model that supports a worldwide ecosystem using innovative IP and our secret sauce to help partners sell and crucially deliver Dynamics in a standardised scalable manner – bringing Business Central to the world.
In conjunction with Ingram, we are standardising sales & delivery capability and increasing scale to support more new customers and grow the Dynamics ecosystem around the world. ”
Marie Abery, Microsoft Dynamics Group Director, said:
“ CPIT does it again, with sustained excellence in supporting customers implementing ERP without the stress, and leveraging their accountancy background for expert advice.
They have followed up their win last year and been recognised as a finalist for Dynamics 365 Business Central Partner of the Year, 2020. With their Dynamics Angels proposition they can support many more resellers in building a Business Central practice with tiered & standardised delivery and support which will bring Business Central to many more customers.
Many congratulations Vicky and team! ”
