Microsoft selects Open Windows as 2011 Software Partner of the Year Finalist

Melbourne, Victoria - 31 August, 2011 - The Microsoft Australia Partner Award program recognises Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions during the last year.


Following their 2010 award for Innovation Partner of the Year, Open Windows was selected as a Finalist from an array of best in-class Microsoft partners, for demonstrating its ability to meet Microsoft customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment, as well as the ability to deliver market-leading customer solutions built on the Microsoft platform.  

Open Windows CEO, Adam McInnes says “It’s a real achievement to be shortlisted two years in a row. It is an honour to be a selected.” Open Windows was chosen out of 4000 Microsoft ISV/Software Partners, as one of three finalists for this award. “It’s great for our staff, who work tirelessly, especially our developers who do a great job and don’t often get out there in front of our customers,” says McInnes.
