    Press Release: Continuant wins 2023 Microsoft Global Partner of the Year for Converged Communications

    FIFE, Wash., June 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuant today announced it has been awarded as Microsoft's 2023 Global Partner of the Year for Converged Communications. The company was honored among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.

    Continuant Chief Sales Officer, Bruce Shelby, said, "Winning Microsoft's Partner of the Year for Converged Communications twice in the last four years is a testament to what Continuant's deployment teams can do. As in 2020, we won in 2023 primarily due to our ability to implement Teams Calling and MTRs for our customers on a global scale. In this case, we were recognized for the work we did with Parexel."

    The Parexel and Continuant Story

    Clinical research innovator, Parexel, wanted a better way to communicate, one that would bring its workforce together and make the world feel smaller. Its communication system—used by 16K employees in 40 countries around the world—failed to keep pace with modern enterprise unified communications, which led to workforce frustration in addition to inefficient workflows. We helped solve this frustration and supported Parexel's transition to Teams Phone and Meeting Rooms for a globally unified user experience.

    "Along with successfully implementing a complex Teams Calling solution install, my team has relied on Continuant to deploy over 100 Microsoft Teams Rooms. Continuant also provided managed services for Teams Calling and Teams Rooms. Account Management and Day 2 engineering have been a lifeline for my team to maximize our critical communication systems infrastructure."

    -- Sean McNamara | Senior Unified Communications Architect | Parexel

    The Microsoft Partner of the Year Award recognizes Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered outstanding Microsoft-based applications, services, and devices during the past year. Awards were classified in various categories, with honorees chosen from a set of more than 4,200 submitted nominations from more than 100 countries worldwide. Continuant was recognized for providing outstanding solutions and services in its area of expertise – implementing advanced Teams Calling and MTR solutions globally.

    "Congratulations to the winners and finalists of the 2023 Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards!" said Nicole Denzen, Chief Partner Officer and Corporate Vice President of Global Partner Solutions at Microsoft. "The innovative new solutions and services that positively impact customers and enable digital transformation from this year's winners demonstrate the best of what's possible with the Microsoft Cloud."
