MICROSOFT FOCUS

Provoke are recognized as pioneers of Microsoft technology

By focusing exclusively on a clearly defined subset of the Microsoft technology stack, Provoke now have an enviable reputation as Microsoft SharePoint, Azure, Office 365 and Lync specialists. Our suite of Gold and Silver Competencies demonstrate best-in-class expertize within Microsoft’s marketplace and is evidence of the deepest, most consistent commitment to a specific business solution area. Only 1% of Microsoft Partners worldwide have attained the outstanding degree of proficiency that is Gold. We're quite proud of that...

Our partnership with Microsoft is core to our business and part of our DNA

As perennial early-adopters, core to Provoke's vision is to lead the market with emerging Microsoft technologies. In 2011 Provoke's industry-leading work and commitment to innovation were rewarded with being named as Microsoft New Zealand's Country Partner of the Year at the prestigious Worldwide Partner Conference [WPC] in Los Angeles.

In addition to this global recognition, we also picked up two local awards for Microsoft’s Online Services Partner of the Year [2011] and the Microsoft Citizenship Solution of the Year [2011] for our work with the Child Cancer Foundation. More recently, we continued our winning streak in the Microsoft Partner awards, collecting a further two accolades.

The most recent announcement from Microsoft adds Collaboration & Content Partner of the Year [2012] to Provoke’s trophy cabinet and Start-Up Partner of the Year [2012] honours went to The Full Suite, one of Provoke’s subsidiaries.

We constantly strive to lead the field in all our chosen disciplines and have the credentials [and awards] to back it up. Further evidence to support this claim came when Provoke was recognised globally as one of a few Cloud Accelerate Partners, based on our early adoption and extensive track-record with Microsoft Office 365 and the Azure platform.
