International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners Celebrates Point Alliance and Agility CMS as a Finalist in the 2016 IAMCP Member Awards Program. Winners and Runners-Up to be announced at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Toronto on July 11th.

REDMOND, Wash. – June 15, 2016 – The International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners is delighted to recognize Point Alliance and Agility CMS as one of the top partners in the IAMCP global community for achieving excellence in partner-to-partner (P2P) solutions that drive customer value.

“We have been overwhelmed at the quality of the submissions this year,” said award committee chairperson and former IAMCP President, Gail Mercer-MacKay. “Our partners are not only innovating, they are delivering unparalleled value by working together to create solutions that drive positive business outcomes.”

Point Alliance has been a long time believer in partnering with other Microsoft partners which provide complimentary services. “These types or projects are great examples which showcase how when partners focus on their core competencies they can bring a best of breed solution to the client” says John Zarei, CEO of Point Alliance. “Having a strong network of partners allows us to compete with much larger business partners on projects, while still being extremely nimble and responsive to our clients needs”.

Hockey Canada began working with Agility and Point Alliance in 2012 when Hockey Canada set out to find a new content management system. The organization’s need for a flexible, secure solution was paramount. After an extensive review of platforms, Hockey Canada landed on Agility and Point Alliance to rebuild its online presence because of the platform’s robust scaling capabilities and the partnering agency’s digital expertise.

The International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners (IAMCP) is the leading independent global organization for business networking in the Microsoft partner eco-system with 100+ chapters in over 40 countries around the world. IAMCP members represent the trusted, independent voice of the Microsoft partner community.

Microsoft Partners that are part of the IAMCP community typically enjoy significantly higher revenues and higher margins than their counterparts outside of the community. Members benefit from P2P relationships with other trusted members to generate these higher margins and deliver exceptional solutions and services to their customers.
