The Microsoft New Zealand Partner Awards, held at St Matthew in the City, Auckland saw 12 local businesses recognised for their outstanding customer solutions at an event that celebrates Kiwi innovation. A total of 56 Microsoft Partners competed for the honours announced.
Intergen’s Lumino Dental Plan platform was the winner of the Engaging Customers category, helping overturn New Zealand’s poor track record for dental maintenance. The platform, developed for Lumino the Dentists, provides patients with a self-service portal that reminds them when check-ups are due, and enables them to book online and see their treatment and payment history. Patients have cited the platform as the reason they returned to regular dentist’s visits after many years of neglect.
Intergen was named winner of two other categories, the Optimising Operations Award (for the second year running) and Modern Workplace Award, the most hotly-contested category of the night.
“The magic of these Awards is that they reveal the capability and influence that Microsoft Partners have in empowering customers to create real change and value. Some of the examples we’ve seen have created an impact that reaches far beyond one organisation, transforming people’s wellbeing as well as our natural environment,” said Sarah Bowden, Microsoft New Zealand One Commercial Partner Director.
