EDISON, N.J., Aug. 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avaap, the largest Infor systems integrator, announced today it is the recipient of three 2016 Americas Partner Summit Awards. The three awards include Infor Alliance Partner of the Year, the third consecutive year Avaap has earned this distinction, Net New Business for driving the most new license sales for Infor solutions, and Cloud Partner of the Year, in recognition of the largest and most referenceable cloud migration program.
Avaap is the first partner to receive all three awards and sole distinction as Infor Alliance Partner of the Year. Award winners are determined by factors such as levels of service, growth year over year, levels of new business, revenues, and fiscal year performance.
“Avaap has solidified its role as a strategic partner in the Infor ecosystem, offering deep industry, application and deployment expertise for customers in healthcare, retail, manufacturing, public sector and other industries,” said Jeff Abbott, senior vice president, Global Alliances at Infor. “Avaap’s growth since inception into the Alliance Partner Program in 2013 has been unparalleled. Their partnership and commitment to Infor has resulted in numerous success stories and results that have greatly benefited our joint customers.”
Infor’s newly designated cloud sales award is designed to reflect the industry’s broad shift of mission-critical applications to the cloud. Avaap earned the highest cloud bookings of any partner, with 50 percent of its customer base implementing or upgrading to the cloud. We believe this is due in large part to the cloud solution’s lower total cost of ownership and Avaap’s proprietary implementation tools, including JumpStart implementation accelerators that are designed to help reduce cost and shorten the project timeline.
“Our strategic partnership is centered on Infor’s commitment to developing beautifully designed enterprise software that is industry focused and Avaap’s dedication to delivering enterprise software solutions that can help customers drive more efficacy from their technology investments,” said Dhiraj Shah, president and CEO of Avaap. “We plan on expanding our partnership with Infor and investing in the people, processes and technology that can help our customers optimize their Infor software investment and achieve faster time to value. Being honored with three Infor awards is extremely gratifying and it reflects the Avaap team’s unwavering commitment to our customers, Infor and the broader partner community.”
