Technology giant Microsoft recently announced their Partner of the Year Awards and a Toronto-based digital transformation company was named a winner. Architech, among a world-wide field of top Microsoft partners, was awarded for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions using Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform.
Known as a digital transformation catalyst, Architech stood out among the more than 3,300 nominations from over 100 countries worldwide being named as winner for providing outstanding open-source software solutions.
“It is an honor to recognize the winners and finalists of the 2020 Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards,” said Gavriella Schuster, corporate vice president, One Commercial Partner, Microsoft. “These partners go above and beyond, delivering timely solutions that solve the complex challenges that businesses around the world face – from communicating and collaborating virtually to helping customers realize their full potential with Azure cloud services. I am proud to honor and congratulate each winner and finalist.”
“We are thrilled to be leveraging the power of Azure as our key technology platform,” said David Suydam, CEO & Founder. “I’m proud of what our team accomplished together in partnership with Microsoft.”
Architech was awarded for the solution they built for Roto-Rooter, a leading North American plumbing repair and water cleanup services company, which modernized their digital presence. Specifically, Architech was able to improve the loading speed of their web pages by 54%. By optimizing the page speeds as well as simplifying the UX, the result was a 22% increase in conversion on web traffic.
“Most of all, we provided a solution that was technically advanced and maximized the capabilities of Microsoft’s platform,” said Suydam. “While the technology is important and we leveraged the power of Azure because it is a fantastic platform to build our solutions, it’s about the human side. We look as much at the experience of the customer as the employee who uses and maintains the solution.”
The complexity of a company going through a digital transformation is high but an opportunity to improve in other areas. “We have helped a range of industries and have been a catalyst for digitally transforming their customer experiences and operations. If you simply take a process from a non-digital world to a digital one, you’re missing out on what could be reinvisioned. Like Microsoft, we aim to inspire people to achieve more.”
