i5 wins Microsoft CRM award
South African company i5 was named the first global winner of the Microsoft Partner of the Year award in the category, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, earlier this week. The award is to be presented at the Worldwide Partner Conference in Houston, Texas, in July 2008. According to i5 CEO Glen Ansell, the award is the culmination of the company's determination and sharp focus on the Microsoft technology stack, and specifically, Dynamics CRM. “Having recognised the viability and relevance of Microsoft's CRM package soon after the inception of i5 in 2004, our company took a strategic decision to become the South African market leader in this aspect of Microsoft's technology solutions,” he says.
