K2 Wins Microsoft ISV of the Year Award in South Africa
SUN CITY, South Africa, Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ — K2 was named Independent Software Vendor of the Year, Sept. 2, at the Microsoft Partner Network 2010 Awards.
The Microsoft Partner Network 2010 Awards recognize partners in South Africa that have excelled in delivering Microsoft solutions over Microsoft’s fiscal year 2009.
“We are just thrilled and honored by this award from Microsoft,” said K2′s Freddy Jonker, regional director for Africa and Middle East. “We are in the midst of our best year ever, as organizations of all sizes and types are realizing that workflow and BPM technologies can really save time, reduce costs and provide better information management.
“We are excited, because we hear everyday that K2 is making a significant difference for organizations using SharePoint and other Microsoft technologies, here in South Africa and all over the world.”
K2 software delivers workflow, BPM and process-driven applications that improve business efficiency. With easy-to-use tools, K2 applications can be set up to automate and manage business processes — such as document approval or inventory tracking — or pull together business processes, people, services, information and systems into a single application that helps drive business. Then, what’s been built can be used like building blocks to assemble new applications.
“We started small — more than 10 years ago, here in South Africa — and have grown to a global presence with more than 2,000 customers in 54 countries,” said Adriaan van Wyk, K2 co-founder and CEO. “Microsoft’s recognition of our partnership endorses the ongoing value we provide to joint customers who are relying on us more than ever to deliver business-critical solutions that streamline the organization.”
This award for K2 follows recognition by Microsoft’s Stephen Elop, president business division, at this year’s Worldwide Partner conference in Washington, D.C.
“[K2] really focused on the integration between unified communications, collaborative content management, and traditional business processes,” Elop said in his keynote address. “And as a result, they’re standing up above the crowd, they’re having amazing success.”
