The value of the Consortium to clients is further extended by the close working relationship that is demonstrated by the partnership.

Being a member of the Consortium underpins our world class offering to our clients.”

Speaking about the impact the Consortium has on delivering transitional change to clients, Sales and Marketing Director at Coeo James Boother said, “We have had a great year working with our Consortium partners to create transformational change for our clients  and we are delighted that Microsoft have recognised our hard work with this very prestigious award.”

On the value the Consortium offers to clients, Gordon McKenna, CEO Inframon said “Inframon are often asked by our clients how they can adopt other Microsoft Cloud technologies to complement the Azure services we manage for them.

“Being part of the Consortium allows us all to provide a complete end-to-end turnkey digital transformation solution, maximising the productivity benefits the Microsoft Cloud provides for all Consortium customers. This Microsoft Partner Award Win reinforces the value Consortium customers are receiving and the work all 5 partners are delivering”.
