For the second year in a row, Microsoft has crowned Cooper Parry IT world-beaters. And as was the case in 2019, it’s all down to their excellence in innovation and implementation of the cloud-based business management solution, Dynamics 365 Business Central.
For this year’s awards, Microsoft received no less than 3,500 entries, from 126 countries across the globe. And with over 25,000 Microsoft Partners in the UK alone, being named as a finalist for the 2020 Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Partner of the Year puts CP IT in a very, very select group.
How did we raise the bar from last year?
We created Dynamics Angels – our global P2P (Partner 2 Partner) program focused on making Business Central accessible to more and more customers. It’s a worldwide network of partners with CP IT at the centre, built on standard fixed price, outcome, deployment and support packs, with technology that allows a non-dynamics partner to deliver the entire process.
Vicky Critchley, COO at Cooper Parry IT, said:
“We’re delighted to be globally recognised for our Business Central offering again – especially as it’s unprecedented (can we use that word yet?) for a partner to be named two years in a row. For me, that shows we’ve got something special, and the team have done an amazing job bringing Dynamics Angels to life and keeping us right at the top of our field. Now, it’s time to focus on the next evolution, because three years in a row has a nice ring to it.”
David Warner from Microsoft said:
“It’s been a wonderful experience working with the CP IT team this past year as they strategically expanded their business from overseas, setting up a U.S. operation. They have quickly made an impact in the U.S. market, bringing an innovative go-to-market strategy that’s changing the way partners and customers sell, buy and manage Business Central. I’m proud to have played a role in their expansion, and excited to see what’s next with CP IT in the years ahead!”
Marie Abery, Microsoft Dynamics Group Director, said:
“CP IT does it again, with sustained excellence in supporting customers implementing ERP without the stress, and leveraging their accountancy background for sage advice. With their Dynamics Angels proposition they can support many more resellers in building a Business Central practice with tiered and standardised delivery, and support which will bring Business Central to many more customers.
Many congratulations Vicky and team!”
Rob Pope, Dynamics Angels Global Channel Director at Cooper Parry IT, added:
“Microsoft World Partner of the Year Finalist. Wow, just wow. That is an amazing validation of the model. Dynamics Angels builds on the success that CP IT had in 2018/19 with opening up the routes to market for Dynamics. What started with reach and scale, built on fixed price/outcome solutions, has evolved into a model that supports a worldwide ecosystem using innovative IP and our secret sauce to help partners sell and crucially deliver Dynamics in a standardised scalable manner – bringing Business Central to the world.
In conjunction with Ingram, we are standardising sales and delivery capability and increasing scale to support more new customers and grow the Dynamics ecosystem around the world.”
