[Johannesburg, 14 August 2008] – AccTech Systems, Gold certified Microsoft Partner with nine Microsoft competencies, and the Softline Accpac business partner of the year scooped two awards at the annual Microsoft Partner Programme awards ceremony.

AccTech walked away as the coveted Microsoft Partner of the Year in the Independent Software Vendor (ISV)/Software Solutions Partner and Microsoft Office Deployment Partner categories.

AccTech was nominated as a finalist in 10 categories; more nominations than any other partner. In July, AccTech also received an International Finalist award for Microsoft Enterprise Project Management at the Microsoft World Partner conference in Houston USA.

AccTech was selected for Microsoft’s top honour because of their demonstrated leadership in developing and delivering enterprise-class business solutions based on the Microsoft platform. To be recognised as a finalist, the partner must achieve a score of more than 70% as evaluated by a Microsoft panel.

“We are delighted with the recognition AccTech has received locally and abroad,” says Tertius Zitzke, Managing Director of AccTech Systems. “Customer satisfaction is our highest priority. Through the development of innovative custom solutions for our customers, we’ve managed to launch a series of very successful solutions and products based on the latest Microsoft technology, and it’s these solutions that have resulted in AccTech being recognised as the ISV Partner of the year,” says Zitzke.

“These awards are a testament to the efforts of AccTech to deliver powerful, mission-critical Microsoft-based solutions that meet business needs of enterprises worldwide. To be a finalist in 10 categories recognises the depth and breadth of talent and skills within our organisation.”

In the Information Worker space, AccTech walked away as the Office Deployment partner of the year. “Over the past 12 months, we’ve had tremendous success with Microsoft’s Office products and solutions, specifically with Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Enterprise Project Management (EPM),” says Aldo van Tonder, Director of Strategic Technology solutions at AccTech Systems. “This award cements our status as the top deployment partner and recognises the innovation we’ve demonstrated in our industry,” says Van Tonder.
