London, UK, October 21, 2021 – IFS, the global cloud enterprise applications company, is today announcing the winners of its annual Partner of the Year Awards, recognizing partners’ continued dedication to the IFS Partner Program, commitment to excellence in the service(s) delivered to mutual customers, and expertise in leveraging innovation to extend the capabilities of IFS’s solution.
The 2021 IFS Partner of the Year Awards comprises nine categories that recognize the tremendous achievements attained by IFS’s partner ecosystem and considers partners across all industries, countries and segments of the market.
Merlin Knott, Global Head of Partners & Channels at IFS celebrated the perseverance and commitment to innovation and excellence demonstrated by all IFS partners over the past year and commented: “I am proud of and grateful to all our partners for their agility in adapting to the current business climate. The last year has been a difficult one for many businesses, whether they have dealing with intense periods of supply chain disruption, talent and skills shortages, or transforming their operations to become more sustainable, all have faced challenges. What is clear from the entries we saw this year and the winners chosen is that some businesses see challenges as opportunities, not obstacles, and have worked hard to overcome them and deliver for their customers at the Moment of Service™.”
As with previous years, an internal steering committee of global and regional IFS representatives reviewed nominations for the merit-based categories while a panel of veteran industry analysts, Mickey North Rizza (IDC), Ed O’Brien (ARC) and Jon Reed (Diginomica) lead on judging nominations for the Innovative, Services and Solutions categories, drawing on their broad experiences to judge a particularly competitive pool of entries.
Michael Ouissi, IFS Chief Customer Officer (CCO), said: “Congratulations to this year’s top performers! The winners this year truly stood out for our customers, and for us. I extend my sincere thanks to them for going above and beyond, but also to all partners within our global ecosystem for not only their performance throughout the 2021 calendar year, but also for the resilience, adaptability and dedication I have seen during these recent testing times.
