Microsoft has presented a host of Australian companies with awards at its annual Worldwide Partner Conference in Canada.
Web hosting company, WebCentral, along with Australian services firm, Dialog Information Technology, both received awards for superior customer solutions from services companies over the past 12 months.
WebCentral took out the Hosting Service Provider of the Year award for the Asia-Pacific region, while Dialog was crowned Outstanding Partner, South Pacific.
Although the Microsoft global award is a first for Dialog, WebCentral was honoured as the software giant’s hosting company of the year for Asia-Pacific in 2003.
Two Australian software companies were also honoured with awards. Brookstone Technologies received the ISV/Software Solution of the Year award. Excom Australia, Devtest and the Australian arm of NetIQ were among 35 partners to win an award for customer experience of the year.
