Prism Technologies Group earned a prestigious regional award for the second consecutive year at Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference this month. The company, which is an official Microsoft partner, was also honored with two nominations in predominant categories.
In all, Prism Technologies Group earned the distinction of:
- Award winner – 2014 Microsoft Community Connections Partner of the Year for the U.S. SMB Central Region
- Nominee – 2014 Microsoft Cloud Partner of the Year for the U.S. SMB Central Region
- Nominee – 2014 Microsoft Partner of the Year for the U.S. SMB Central Region
For the second consecutive year, Prism Technologies Group received the Microsoft Community Connections Partner of the Year award for the U.S. SMB Central Region at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Washington, D.C. on July 14. Out of five nominees for the Community Connections category, Bryan Guinn, president and Patrick Felty, vice president of Prism Technologies Group graciously accepted the engraved Tiffany & Co. crystal plate which was awarded in the presence of the top tier Microsoft partners from the central U.S. region. The Central Region encompasses 19 states and thousands of Microsoft partners.
Merits for this award were based upon the company’s commitment to educating the community about technology, not just Microsoft products. “Giving back to the community is a key focus,” Guinn said. “San Antonio is becoming a technology mecca in Texas and we are committed to contributing to that growth, whether it is educating the business community about the latest Microsoft technology, hiring IT interns from local colleges, to providing low cost services to nonprofit organizations.”
Within the last 12 months, Prism Technologies Group has hosted more than 40 lectures and classes, and they have participated in several conferences and symposiums to educate business owners, IT professionals and the nonprofit sector. They partnered with multiple chambers of commerce, professional organizations, the San Antonio Area Foundation and the Microsoft Store to demonstrate how the Cloud, Office 365, Windows 8 and Windows Phone enable collaboration, even across multiple platforms.
The company also participates in St. Philip’s College’s internship program by hiring students as help desk specialists. Interns gain valuable experience working with cloud computing, a technology that businesses are just beginning to utilize. In addition, some students are veterans, so Prism Technologies Group is honored to help them develop skills in a new vocation.
As a Microsoft partner, Prism Technologies Group is certified to sell, deploy and manage Microsoft products and solutions. The company was nominated for the Microsoft Cloud Partner award and the Microsoft Partner of the Year, both in the U.S. SMB Central Region because of their ability to surpass all three tiers and maintain their Tier 1 status in the SMB Champions Club over the past 12 months while simultaneously maintaining superior customer service. Although the company earned second place in these categories, the executive team is very pleased about the nominations, and the amount and quality of work their team has accomplished within a short period of time.
