Acena recognised by Microsoft for business productivity solutions
INVL Technology managed company Acena, providing cloud based and business productivity solutions, received international Microsoft recognition. In the annual global awards the jury chose Acena as Microsoft Country Partner of the Year in Lithuania for 2015.
This year, Microsoft recognized partners in 43 categories, with winners chosen from a set of more than 2,300 entrants from 108 different countries worldwide. The award finalists and winners were selected from a group of nominations based on their commitment to customers and their solution’s market impact. Acena was one of the first companies in Lithuania that started offering Office 365-based business productivity solutions.
“We are honored to recognize Acena as this year’s winner of Microsoft Country Partner of the Year award,” said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group, Microsoft Corp. Acena’s dedication to providing outstanding value for our mutual customers is a prime example of the excellence we see in our talented community of Microsoft partners.”
„This award encourages us to continue working hard in order to create even greater value to our customers. We have already noticed that clients, after implementing our solutions, reduce their expenses by 10-20 percent, while the effectiveness of the staff when they receive modern tools increases by a tenth“, - says Marius Lescinskas, the CEO of Acena.
For example, last year Acena introduced the Office 365 solution to one of the country's largest transport infrastructure engineering companies Kelprojektas. As a result, e-mails, employee work calendars and other relevant work documents became available from any employee's device, regardless of their location: "The solution ensured uninterrupted operation of critical systems and allowed achieving this at a lower cost compared to similar solutions, giving more flexibility to adapt to changing business needs“, - commented M.
