Columbus has achieved the 2021/2022 Inner Circle status for Microsoft Business Applications from Microsoft. This is the eighth consecutive year Columbus has earned the honour in recognition for its strong sales achievements and delivering value to organisations through the Microsoft technology stack.
Inner Circle status is awarded by Microsoft to the top one per cent of its partner network every year, in line with the annual Microsoft Inspire partner conference in July. As a member of the Inner Circle, Columbus will take part in the invite-only Inner Circle Summit with senior Microsoft leaders in March 2022, as well as attending regular virtual meetings over the next twelve months.
Cecilia Flombaum, Microsoft Business Applications Ecosystem Lead said, “in a year of deep business transformation for every company and every industry on the planet, it is extremely rewarding to be able to recognise Microsoft Business Applications partners from every corner of the world that accelerated our joint customers’ digital transformation and drove unsurpassed customer success. Our Inner Circle members are chosen based on their business performance, as well as capabilities as an organisation, whether that’s creating IP, developing solutions, or having an industry-leading focus on digital transformation. Microsoft is honoured to recognise Columbus for their achievements this past year, their dedication to our customers, and their innovation around the Microsoft Cloud.”
Columbus is a longstanding Microsoft partner with deep in-house expertise of the Microsoft technology stack, leveraging solutions such as Microsoft Dynamics to transform businesses in industries spanning manufacturing, retail, food and rental & leasing. The company has previously won the Microsoft Dynamics Partner of the Year award on several occasions.
Chris Mean, CEO of Columbus UK added, “achieving Inner Circle status from Microsoft for the eighth consecutive year demonstrates our sustained commitment to driving digital transformation and greater value for businesses using the Microsoft portfolio. This is a testament to the deep capabilities of our expert consultants, our proven solutions portfolio and our strong track record of using Microsoft technology to overcome critical business pain points – particularly in a year of continued global disruption.”
