Germantown, MD (PRWEB) August 06, 2014
Planet Technologies was named Microsoft’s State and Local Government Partner of the Year for Office 365 at last week’s Industry Solution University (ISU) in Phoenix, Arizona. This award follows closely on the heels of Planet’s recognition by Microsoft as 2014 U.S. Windows Partner of the Year. The award was presented by Microsoft’s Vice President of Public Sector, Curt Kolcun, Vice President of State and Local Government, Michael Donlan, and General Manager for Public Sector Partners, Vince Menzione.
“Microsoft Office 365 is the future for service delivery to our clients, and the solution touches on the most critical aspects driving user collaboration and content for government organizations. It is incredible to be recognized by Microsoft for the investments we have made in supporting Office 365 and for making cloud transition a reality for government clients across the country,” said Planet President and CEO Scott Tucker.
Planet has migrated more than one million government customers to the Microsoft cloud and was an early adopter of Office 365. Programs such as Planet’s O365support.com, SharePoint in the cloud initiatives, Planet’s government productivity applications downloadable in the Microsoft store, and soon-to-be-launched GovCloud.com site are key differentiators making Planet the elite Microsoft cloud services partner across the United States. Vince Menzione, General Manager for Microsoft Public Sector partners, noted, “When relying on someone to transform your business to cloud, experience and support matters. Planet has that in spades.”
