Congratulations to SBD Tech Contributor
We, at Small Business Daily, want to congratulate our technology contributor, Clayton Moulynox and his company Evolve IT Australia which recently bested hundreds of competitors from all over the world by showcasing a local solution selected as a 2009 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference Awards winner for Small Business Specialist Partner of the Year.
Evolve IT’s winning business solution improves the operations of Australian rules football clubs in Western Australia, enabling better management of the various club resources which are, of course, not limited to on-field concerns. Its team recognized the industry’s need for a more modern approach to handling football club staff, resources and data since the traditional methods were still very much dependent on manual management, which was inefficient and had a great propensity for errors.
Evolve IT’s solution utilized Microsoft software like the Microsoft Office 2007 suite, Microsoft Small Business Server 2003 R2, and Microsoft Windows Vista Business. The solution was noteworthy to the awards committee due to its innovative integration into a business that is not traditionally driven by technology, but instead by on-field success. It demonstrates how it provides ways for small or mid-sized businesses to better connect with customers, other business professionals and employees by enhancing business processes, productivity, security, and IT infrastructure management, and by reducing costs.
The award, which is one among 25 other categories honored at the software giant’s annual Worldwide Partner Conference, is given to a company that has used Microsoft technology in innovative ways to deliver integration solutions that serve customers in the small- to medium-size-business market segment. The company won the equivalent Award at the Microsoft Australian Partner Conference in 2007 and was a finalist in 2008.
The presentation was made at the Worldwide Partner Conference in New Orleans on July 13th. The Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference Awards recognize Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions over the last year.
We still can’t believe that our Aussie contributor was in the States and didn’t stop by to say hello, but we’re gooshing over his successes nonetheless – much like a proud family. Congrats to Clayton and his team at Evolve IT!
