Valo Wins Big at Microsoft Inspire 2019 – 2 Awards in 2 Days

Microsoft Inspire 2019 Awards

Wow! What an incredible Microsoft Inspire 2019 it has been! 2 days into the conference and we had already brought home 2 awards we are incredibly proud of, Microsoft ISV Partner of the Year Finland and IAMCP 2019 P2P Bronze Winner – EMEA with our incredible Dutch Valo Premium Partner I4-YOU. 

Microsoft ISV Partner of the Year – Finland

Blue Meteorite, the mother company of Valo received the Microsoft ISV Partner of the Year – Finland award on Monday, and it was the perfect way to end our first day at Microsoft Inspire 2019!

The award provides amazing recognition for Blue Meteorite‘s Valo product that, to date, is a multi-awarded product built by an international Valo Team and distributed by 250 Valo Partners globally in 40 + countries.

I would personally like to thank Microsoft for this award. Building Valo’s global success story would not have been possible without Microsoft’s Office 365 and Azure cloud offering as our platform, Microsoft Partner Network as our global sales channel and the continuous support we have received from Microsoft’s people, both globally and locally, during the years.

Jari Pullinen, Vice President of Valo

The award is given to the best organization that develops, markets and sells software running on top of Microsoft’s software and platform. For the second time, 2016 being the first, Blue Meteorite was selected as Microsoft Partner of the Year – Finland.

IAMCP 2019 P2P Bronze Winner – EMEA

Of course, we were still buzzing with excitement from our win the night before, but the surprises weren’t over. On Tuesday, we received yet another award! The IAMCP 2019 P2P Award is another proud moment for us. Why? Our business relies on incredible partners from all around the world who believe in not only our solutions but the mutually beneficial relationships we form with our partners.

The award provides recognition for the successful implementation of Valo Intranet, for a Dutch customer Royal BAM Group, delivered as a joint effort between Blue Meteorite and Valo’s Premium Partner from the Netherlands, I4-YOU.

Speaking about the successful partnership between Blue Meteorite, I4-YOU, and Royal BAM Group, Blue Meteorite’s Business Director Tytti Hallavo said this:

This project has offered us a unique experience of what highly functioning team effort feels like, on both an individual as well as company level. Openness, cooperation, agility and uncompromising ambition towards the end result has been the distinctive characteristic during the last 18 months. I am, both personally and on behalf of Blue Meteorite, really looking forward to continuing our journey with I4-YOU and Royal BAM Group and, feeling empowered by this success. We are happy to encounter new challenges in the Partner-to-Partner cooperation space.
