Our job is shining the spotlight on client brands. We reckon we're pretty good at it, and sometimes other folk do too. And in our world there's no stronger endorsement than a Microsoft Worldwide Partner of the Year Award. Two awards are even better.
The annual awards honor Microsoft partners for delivering innovative solutions during the past year that directly address customer challenges. Award winners and finalists are chosen from nominations around the world, nearly 3,000 entries were collected this year from more than 100 countries.
In an unprecedented coup, NV Interactive has won two Microsoft Worldwide Partner of the Year Awards
The Microsoft Worldwide Web Development Partner of the Year Award
Share an Idea was a six-week Christchurch City Council initiative to get the whole community involved in contributing ideas to future of Christchurch's central city
Built using Microsoft's .NET framework, the web platform allowed the community to submit their ideas via web and social media, providing an extended model for engaging people in the city's rebuild.
Here's what Scott Guthrie, corporate vice president, Server and Tools Business, Microsoft Corporation, said about us.
"Microsoft would like to recognize NV Interactive as the Web Development Partner of the Year. Following a major earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand, NV Interactive took advantage of the Microsoft portfolio of development technologies to quickly design a reliable, robust, and easy-to-use website and kiosk application to support its Share an Idea campaign. The campaign was dedicated to collecting Christchurch residents' ideas on how to rebuild the city"
The Citizenship Humanitarian Response Partner of the Year Award
This website provided the platform to help businesses recover from the Christchurch earthquakes, a unique solution built with Microsoft products. Microsoft's Lori Harnick, general manager of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Microsoft Corporation, said NV Interactive stood out from a large number of strong submissions.
"Their work creating and operating the Recovery Canterbury website in the aftermath of major earthquakes in New Zealand in 2010 and 2011 is a fantastic example of how the combination of technology expertise and a commitment to corporate social responsibility can have a positive benefit on a local community"
