LINK Development announced today that it has received two international accolades. The company won the 2010 Microsoft Country Partner of the Year Award for Egypt and for the fourth consecutive year, it was re-admitted into Microsoft Dynamics President’s Club 2010/2011.
The Microsoft Country Partner Awards, which were recently announced, recognize Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions over the last year. LINK Development was chosen out of Egypt’s top Microsoft partners and was honored at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference which took place in Washington, D.C. on July 11, 2010.
Microsoft Awards were revealed in a number of categories, with winners chosen from a pool of almost 3,000 entrants worldwide. Through the Microsoft Country Partner of the Year Award, LINK Development was recognized as Microsoft foremost partner in Egypt for its superior technology, innovation, and subsidiary engagement.
The Microsoft Country Partner of the Year Award celebrates partners at the country level that have demonstrated business excellence in delivering Microsoft solutions to mutual customers over the past year. This award honors LINK Development for demonstrating effective engagement with its local Microsoft office in driving customer satisfaction, delivering innovation, winning new customers, and creating business impact.
Commenting on the award, Hanan Abdel Meguid, CEO of LINK Development, said, “We are honored and excited to be enthroned as Egypt’s top software development powerhouse in the first year that Microsoft introduces its Country Partner of the Year Award. This international recognition further demonstrates our distinguished industry-leading approach for delivering creative customer solutions using Microsoft technologies.”
Additionally, LINK Development’s outstanding customer commitment and sales achievement has maintained the company’s membership in the Microsoft Dynamics President’s Club for the fourth year in a row. This elite club recognizes the top five percent of Microsoft Business Solutions partners worldwide. Membership is granted based on their constant dedication to achieving high levels of customer satisfaction, active pursuit of product and technological advancement, and impressive sales performance.
Abdel Meguid adds, “We are where we are today because of our deep understanding of ours customers needs and our high level of product expertise. By extending Microsoft Dynamics platform to our customers, they were able to grow their business and achieve new levels of success.”
LINK Development was one of the first IT solutions and services providers to affiliate itself with Microsoft’s partner program since its debut 10 years ago. Since then, the company has been working closely with Microsoft to offer professional services and develop solutions for its growing clientele of government entities, leading local companies as well as large multinationals in the Middle East and Europe.
The recent accolade tops LINK Development’s long and impressive list of awards received from Microsoft. Last year, LINK Development was the only company from the region to receive three recognitions; Microsoft Dynamics ISV Partner of the Year Award for the Middle East and Africa (MEA), one of three worldwide finalists for Microsoft Dynamics Public Sector Partner of the Year and the readmission to the Microsoft Dynamics President’s Club for 2009 / 2010.
“We are pleased to recognize LINK Development as Microsoft’s Egypt Country Partner of the Year,” said Allison Watson, Corporate Vice President, Worldwide Partner Group, Microsoft Corp. “LINK Development has demonstrated the highest level of excellence and innovation, by combining local market expertise with superior solutions and services that fulfill our customers’ needs.”
