Systems integrators BCA have cleaned up at the recent IBM Business Partners of the Year awards, bringing home all five major prizes.
Selected by a panel of IBM executives as Victorian, New South Wales, Australia/New Zealand and Asia Pacific Business Partner of the Year as well as winning the much coveted IBM Global Financing Business Partner award, BCA is unashamedly blowing its own horn. Louis Vellios, BCA's national marketing manager, insists that this is "the first time a company has won all of the awards, ever, and to top it off we are 100 per cent Australian owned."
Beating out 65 Australian and New Zealand companies for the local awards and about 40 for the regional and international recognition, Vellios claims BCA fulfilled a range of criteria. "IBM judged us on a pretty strict standard. They looked at our revenue contributions, our year-on-year growth, our performance against our expected target, customer satisfaction and our operational compliance."
