A closer look at Microsoft UK Partner of the Year 2019 – New Signature

Microsoft UK Partner of the Year 2019 – New Signature

Digital transformation impacts everyone: Microsoft, our partners, and our customers. We must all learn to adapt and confront the challenges whilst embracing every opportunity. Today, as our customers face complex technology decisions, they expect even more from their technology providers.

Many of you will recognise this – and you’ll also recognise that, when it’s time to work with partners like you, customers want someone who can offer more than just a transaction. They want a partner capable of delivering specialised consultative assistance, value-added services, deep skills, and experience aligned to their industry and needs.

Every day, customers ask Microsoft and our partners to support them with our technological expertise and industry knowledge.

As the Microsoft UK Partner of the Year 2019, New Signature is an outstanding example of a Microsoft partner providing precisely that.

Watch the video below and see New Signature’s commitment to doing business that really makes a difference.

New Signature is an excellent example of a partner whose values and drive mirror Microsoft’s own. It’s a business that thrives on innovation, partnership, and inclusion – and we’re incredibly proud of that.

There were lots of great reasons New Signature were awarded Microsoft UK Partner of the Year 2019…

  • Innovation – Customer success is at the forefront of everything they do and sometimes, you need to think differently to help customers perform better. New Signature has won some key customers through their innovation, like the examples in the video of the Met Police and Virgin Atlantic Airways.
  • Learn-it-all culture – Like Microsoft, New Signature enjoys a culture of continuous learning.  They see certifications and competencies as a key differentiator, focusing on more advanced accreditations like Azure MSP Expert to provide that expertise customers want from a partner.
  • Partnership – New Signature’s phenomenal, record-breaking growth has been driven by a clear focus on Microsoft cloud services, but they recognize they can’t be experts in everything. The company is incredibly strategic in their approach to identifying opportunity and partnerships. For example, it formed a successful partnership with SAP Implementation leader, Edenhouse, which complements New Signature’s Azure skills with Edenhouse’s SAP skills. New Signature has also just announced a deal to include Turbonomic’s ARM platform within its managed services.
  • Diversity and inclusion – Successful digital transformations require cultural transformations too, and at the heart of that is diversity and inclusivity. Diverse and inclusive businesses are more creative and collaborative, as well as attract and retain the best talent. New Signature is heavily focused on achieving a gender balance, setting up a taskforce to specifically focus on this and working with the Women in Tech Network which has seen them increase the number of women in permanent roles from 11% to 28% this year. Many of these are in technical and service delivery, and architect roles.

Each year we recognise the innovative ways our partners deliver outstanding services and solutions, powered by Microsoft. The UK Country Partner of the Year is a fiercely competitive category, but New Signature stood out in all areas.

Thank you to all our partners, who empower everyone to do more. I couldn’t be more honoured by you all.
