This spring, the company acquired the UK retail operations of Junction Solutions Limited, bringing the number of Group employees to nearly 300. “HSO is one of our top partners” said Doug Kennedy, vice president of Microsoft Dynamics partners. “They are flexible, adaptable and agile business partners. HSO participate in several Partner Advisory Boards and have a clear industry focus. The fact that HSO has again been selected to our Inner Circle – reserved for only 60 partners worldwide – is the result of excellent performance. ” The awards were presented at the annual Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Toronto, Canada, where this year 16,000 Microsoft partners were present. Over 20 regional accolades were awarded by Microsoft to their partners who have demonstrated innovation, excellent sales results and are highly valued.
