AccTech Systems, Gold certified Microsoft Partner with nine Microsoft
competencies, and the Softline Accpac business partner of the year scooped
two awards at the annual Microsoft Partner Programme awards ceremony.

AccTech walked away as the coveted Microsoft Partner of the year in the
Independent Software Vendor (ISV)/Software Solutions Partner and Microsoft
Office Deployment Partner categories.
AccTech was nominated as a finalist in 10 categories; more nominations than
any other partner.  In July AccTech also received an International Finalist
award for Microsoft Enterprise Project Management at the Microsoft World
Partner conference in Houston USA.
AccTech was selected for Microsoft's top honor because of their demonstrated
leadership in developing and delivering enterprise-class business solutions
based on the Microsoft platform.  To be recognized as a finalist the partner
must achieve a score of more than 70% as evaluated by a Microsoft panel.
"We are delighted with the recognition AccTech has received locally and
abroad," says Tertius Zitzke, MD of AccTech Systems. "Customer satisfaction
is our highest priority.  Through the development of innovative custom
solutions for our customers we've managed to launch a series of very
successful solutions and products based on the latest Microsoft technology,
and it's these solutions that have resulted in AccTech being recognized as
the ISV Partner of the year," says Zitzke.
"These awards are a testament to the efforts of AccTech to deliver powerful,
mission-critical Microsoft-based solutions that meet business needs of
enterprises worldwide.  To be a finalist in ten categories recognizes the
depth and breadth of talent and skills within our organisation."
In the Information Worker space, AccTech walked away as the Office
Deployment partner of the year.
"Over the past 12 months we've had tremendous success with Microsoft's
Office products and solutions, specifically with Microsoft SharePoint and
Microsoft Enterprise Project Management (EPM)," says Aldo van Tonder,
Director of Strategic Technology solutions at AccTech Systems.
"This award cements our status as the top deployment partner and recognizes
the innovation we've demonstrated in our industry," says van Tonder.
