IMPACT Awards recognize Microsoft Canada partners who are leading the path to innovation in the mobile-first, cloud-first world.
“Today’s business users demand easy access to their work tools regardless of what device they’re on, be it a tablet, smartphone or laptop,” said Kevin Wright, Senior Vice President of Solutions and Services, Softchoice. “Windows 10 offers that converged, unified experience, however, making the leap to a new operating system is no small decision and no small undertaking. As a leading Microsoft partner, Softchoice has served as trusted advisor to customers in both the private and public sectors to evaluate, optimize and deploy Windows 10 to thousands of computers and mobile devices.”
