Lenovo has acknowledged the performance of its top Australian partners over the last year, handing out 19 awards to partners.
The awards were divided between Lenovo's recently restructured business units: Intelligence Device Group (IDG) and Infrastructure Solutions Group (ISG) divisions.
Across the two divisions, nine awards were handed out to partners attached with the IDG division for the acknowledgement of significant achievements, according to the vendor.
In this group, Ingram Micro Australia took home Australian Distributor of the Year, Reseller of the Year: Gold Partner was handed to Next Technologies Australia and Reseller of the Year: Platinum Partner award went to ASI Solutions.
Meanwhile 10 awards were presented to those related to the ISG division for ongoing contribution in support for delivering “true collaboration, innovation, technical understanding and business continuity to their customers”.
Three of these awards went to Synnex, Nuago and Datacom for Distributor, Gold Partner Reseller and Platinum Partner Reseller of the Year, respectively.
“Lenovo would like to take this time to celebrate the incredible successes of our valued channel partners, who continuously showcase their hard work, determination and excellence during these challenging times," said Matt Codrington, managing director of Lenovo A/NZ.
“Amidst today’s evolving business needs in digital transformation, Lenovo will continue to put forward a channel-first experience, giving our partners a reliable end-to-end portfolio to set them and their customers up for great success.”
Stephen Lau, small- to medium-sized business (SMB) lead at Lenovo A/NZ, added that the vendor’s partner awards were evidence of the “significant value and contributions our partners bring in instigating smarter technology to their customers,” particularly during the rise of remote and hybrid work policies.
