For the second time in three years, Ergo has won the Microsoft Ireland Partner of the Year award for demonstrating the highest level of excellence, superior technical ability and innovation in the deployment of market-leading Microsoft-based solutions.
John Purdy, Chief Executive of Ergo, said, “As the IT landscape continues to evolve, our strength lies in our ability to bring together and customise the components of the Microsoft stack, delivering business-changing solutions to our customers. Our success has always been based on meeting their needs.”
Paul Rellis, Managing Director, Microsoft Ireland, said, “Ergo has delivered an outstanding contribution to our joint customers. Over the last year, they have demonstrated their commitment to delivering excellence, innovation and value to Irish businesses, powered by their ongoing investment and commitment to Microsoft.”
With expertise across 11 Microsoft competencies, including Unified Communications, Systems Management and Virtualisation, Ergo has been responsible for some of the most significant Microsoft projects in Ireland over the last 12 months.
Key projects include customising Office 365 for 1,500 aid workers in Goal; a Business Intelligence solution for Topaz that extracts data from 1.5 million transactions a week; the migration of 600 users to a new Exchange messaging environment in St Luke’s Hospital, and the deployment of a passenger information application for Aer Lingus, built on the Azure platform.
