Fujitsu opens call for entries for SELECT Partner Innovation Awards
Fujitsu is now accepting nominations for the prestigious SELECT Innovation Awards for channel partners. For the third consecutive year, Fujitsu is recognising channel partners who have delivered outstanding value for customers through digital transformation projects.
The awards are open to Fujitsu’s more than 16,000 worldwide SELECT Partner Programme members. One winner and two finalists will be selected by a committee of expert judges consisting of Fujitsu executives, who will evaluate the impact of each project in terms of furthering Fujitsu’s vision of creating a Human Centric Intelligent Society. The innovative deployment of key technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Cloud and Security will also be taken into account. The winner will be awarded a bounty of $10,000 in joint marketing funds and two additional shortlisted submissions will receive benefits including a complimentary trip to attend the Fujitsu Forum Munich 2017 and a video case study of their project.
Dave Hazard, Vice President Channel and Sales Operations EMEIA at Fujitsu, said: “Digital Transformation is changing everything about the way we do business today, and our channel partners are the key to helping customers unlock this enormous potential. The annual Fujitsu SELECT Innovation Awards recognise exceptional achievements of partners who have successfully combined their expertise and services with Fujitsu’s extensive product and solution portfolio to implement innovative, customer-oriented projects.”
As a channel-centric organisation, Fujitsu is focused on helping its partners to be successful. With businesses in every sector embracing digital transformation, Fujitsu is working closely with its partners, enabling them to take advantage of new technologies and sales models to deliver transformation. The SELECT Partner Programme includes an expanded portfolio for partners, such as advanced managed security services and cloud-based services, as well as comprehensive training and support.
Last year, the Cutter Group was named winner of the SELECT Innovation Award for the digital transformation of classrooms in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The outcome was the creation of unprecedented educational opportunities for young women in the region. Also shortlisted was BWO Systems for an advanced biometric access control system and Business Systems International for a project to implement a reliable, scalable end-to-end system to support a European online retailer’s plans for growth.
