2020 IFS Partner of the Year Awards open for nominations

IFS Partner of the Year 2020

Celebrating the brightest stars in the global IFS ecosystem across 8 categories

London, April 20, 2020 – IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces the launch of the 2020 edition of the annual IFS Partner of the Year Awards. The awards recognize the top performers of the more than 400-strong IFS Partner Network, their innovation and the transformational projects they have implemented for IFS customers. Over the last year, IFS has focused on developing and expanding its partner ecosystem, doubling the number of certified partner resources and increasing the partner-generated contribution to IFS revenue more than threefold, to provide choice and unsurpassed support to its customers.

 Now in its fourth year running, the IFS Partner of the Year Awards program reflects IFS’s overall partner strategy and evolves in alignment with the company’s partner program and go-to-market philosophy. Careful consideration is given each year in formulating award categories that take into account IFS’s solution areas, technology trends and innovation, partner types and the areas of strength and growth across the global partner ecosystem. IFS’s mission is to ensure the awards promote and reward a challenger mentality among its partners and recognize the value they continue to deliver to customers.

“This is the time to celebrate our IFS partner ecosystem,” said Merlin Knott, Global Head of Partner & Channels at IFS. “Great innovators are most often also great disruptors, they’re quick to adapt to change, embrace new technologies and dare to challenge the norm—they are for the challengers. 2019 truly re-defined how we Go-To-Market with our partners. I saw us come together as one ecosystem to provide unsurpassed value to IFS customers through choice, innovative use of technology, solution expertise and support services. IFS partners are on a mission to seize market share and continue driving excellence—and excellence deserves recognition."
