IFS names global partner award winners

10 Aug 2020

IFS, an enterprise applications provider, has named the winners of the 2020 IFS Partner of the Year Awards. 

The IFS Partner Awards programme categories take into account solution areas, technology trends and innovation, partner types and the areas of strength and growth across its global partner ecosystem.

Earlier this year, IFS global partner and channels head Merlin Knott said that 2019 re-defined how the company is going-to-market with partners. 

“I saw us come together as one ecosystem to provide value to IFS customers through choice, innovative use of technology, solution expertise and support services. IFS partners are on a mission to seize market share and continue driving excellence – and excellence deserves recognition,” he says. 

Today IFS recognises its partners across eight categories including four merit-based awards, three self-nomination awards, and a Customers’ Choice award.

An internal steering committee of global and regional IFS representatives reviewed nominations for merit-based categories according to numerous criteria, while a panel of four industry analysts representing leading firms such as IDC, TEC and diginomica reviewed nominations for the Innovative, Services and Solutions categories. 

They were Juliana Beauvais (IDC), Yu Chen (TEC), Aly Pinder (IDC), and Jon Reed (diginomica).

“Congratulations to this year’s top performers. The winners this year truly stood out for our customers, and for us. I extend my sincere thanks to them for going above and beyond, but also to all partners within our global ecosystem for not only their performance throughout the 2019 calendar year, but also for the resilience, adaptability and dedication I have seen during these recent trialing times,” says IFS chief customer officer Michael Ouissi.
