Every year, Microsoft honours outstanding achievements and innovations from the global partner ecosystem with the Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards. CANCOM was named a finalist for the prestigious Global Partner Award in the “Surface Hub Reseller of the Year” category in the “Modern Work” category.

The placement as one of the top resellers underscores the strong long-standing partnership between CANCOM and Microsoft, as well as CANCOM’s expertise in Surface Hub. It is recognition of the outstanding work the CANCOM team has done over the past year, and of its continued willingness to always put customers’ needs first. A major contributor to this success was the positive development in the Digital Media Solutions area, where special commitment and extraordinary expertise in the area of Meeting Room Solutions and Microsoft Teams Rooms led to the implementation of numerous successful projects.

According to Microsoft, these promise exciting developments in the areas of modern workplace, data center, security and cloud in the coming years.
