HSO Partner of the Year Finalist in categories Retail, Field Service and Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations

Veenendaal, the Netherlands, June 7, 2019 – Each year, Microsoft presents the Partner of the Year Awards to partners who have delivered exceptional performance in terms of innovation and customer success. Out of 2,900+ entries from 115 countries, HSO’s entries in the Retail, Field Service and Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations categories were recognized as Finalists.

 Eric Veldkamp, International Marketing Director HSO: “We are thrilled by this major achievement. To become a finalist in no less than three categories is a great recognition of the commitment and efforts of our dedicated employees and successful collaboration with our customers.

Category Field Service: data-driven working based on IoT and predictive maintenance

BAM Building & Construction, the largest construction company in the Netherlands, won the contract for maintenance of the existing infrastructure at Schiphol Airport in 2018. In order to optimize and streamline the maintenance of more than 17,000 assets at the Schiphol terminals, HSO implemented Microsoft Field Service at BAM, which enables data-driven working based on IoT technology and predictive maintenance.

Category Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations : standardizing processes and eliminating customization with Process Mining

HSO is the largest Dynamics 365 F&O Partner worldwide, with a growth of 250% in Dynamics 365 cloud software between 2016 and 2018. The HSO entry highlighted the added value of using advanced modelling tools when implementing or upgrading an ERP solution, in order to make Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations projects as efficient as possible. This way HSO ensures best practice implementations and minimizes customization.

 

Category Retail: retailers make the transition to a future-proof cloud platform

For 27 years, HSO has been helping retail organizations with process optimization and transformation. Over the past year, the complete cloud migration of Godiva; the supply chain, Azure and Power BI solution for Rituals; and the retail implementation for fashion chain Joules, stood out particularly in this sector.
