Velrada Won the Global Partner of the Year Award for Dynamics, Field Service
This is a pretty big deal. The announcement had already been made by the time the first “core note” presentation kicked off in the T-Mobile arena, but to see us honoured on-stage by Gavriella Schuster in front of 14,000 people was extremely gratifying for all of us. Microsoft puts on a great show and being mentioned during a presentation that featured a live musical performance, impressive lightshow and electrifying opening speech made us feel pretty special.
Field Service–the ability to deliver products and services “in the field”, away from your office–is an enormous growth industry, particularly when it comes to mobility workers and predictive maintenance. The Microsoft team has given us great support building up our Field Service practice over the past few years and it’s come to fruition in 2018. We’ve gained great traction with our continuing European expansion, helping customers like Sodexo get more done with their mobility teams and manage their facilities more efficiently. Technologies that compliment Dynamics 365–like machine learning, geospatial imagery and positioning, cognitive services and especially Internet of Things (IoT)–really light up these solutions.
