Perficient Again Sweeps Regional Honors at Microsoft's 2016 WPC

ST. LOUIS (July 13, 2016)Perficient, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT) (“Perficient”), the leading digital transformation consulting firm serving Global 2000® and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced it swept the regional National Solution Provider awards during Microsoft’s 2016 Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) in Toronto for the second consecutive year.

Perficient was designated Microsoft’s East Region National Solution Provider (NSP) Partner of the Year and Cloud Partner of the Year, Central Region NSP Partner of the Year, and West Region NSP Partner of the Year – the same honors it received in 2015. Together, the awards underscore Perficient’s capabilities in and successful implementations of Microsoft solutions nationwide. These solutions include cloud computing technologies such as Office 365, Microsoft Azure, Skype for Business Online, Yammer, SharePoint Online, Matter Center, and Sitecore.

“We’re excited to name Perficient the National Solution Provider Partner of the Year across East, Central, and West regions in U.S. EPG for the second year in a row,” said Luke Sossi, director of Microsoft’s Enterprise Partner Group East Region. “They continue to deliver cloud-optimized, high-quality digital experience, business optimization, and industry solutions, and we thank them for their commitment to our customers in the enterprise customer segment.”

Perficient, one of 35 Microsoft National Solution Partners, has helped enterprise customers take more than 3.5 million users to the Microsoft Cloud. Perficient employs more than 350 Microsoft-focused consultants, including 75 certified Office 365 consultants, more than 40 certified Azure consultants, and three Sitecore MVPs.

Among Perficient’s recent Microsoft implementations:

  • A roll out of Office 365 ProPlus to 14,000 users across 32 countries in 10 weeks at the global food corporation Kraft Heinz. Kraft Heinz now takes full advantage of the advanced communication and collaboration benefits of Office 365 worldwide.
  • A Sitecore website running in the Azure cloud-computing platform that helps patients at a large, regional healthcare provider find and rate doctors and schedule appointments. The solution brings resources closer to where they are needed and has improved provider relations in the community.
  • A Rise Intranet-as-a-Service solution on Office 365 for 4,000 users at a national lighting solutions manufacturer that provides a cohesive platform for internal communication and collaboration. Implemented in just two weeks, the solution has saved time and money and will continue to deliver value for years.

“Microsoft’s enterprise offerings have grown increasingly cloud-based as companies move to adopt this innovative, efficient and secure technology,” said Matt McGillen, vice president of Perficient’s Microsoft national business group. “Being recognized in just one region is impressive – to be named NSP Partner of the Year in all three U.S. regions, for the second consecutive year, is outstanding – a true reflection of the strength of Perficient’s Microsoft cloud consultation and delivery expertise.”
