Nintex Chosen as Finalist for the 2013 Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards in Two Categories

Nintex has been selected as a finalist for the Microsoft Partner of the Year awards in two categories. The annual awards honor Microsoft partners for delivering innovative solutions and leadership excellence that directly address customer challenges by developing and delivering Microsoft platform-based software applications to mutual customers.

“Our dedication to delivering quality workflow products within this outstanding global partner network is what drives us day after day,” says Wayne Woolston, president, Nintex. “Being named a finalist in two categories is an honor as well as validation that we’re building tremendous momentum in the global marketplace. These awards are a fantastic testament to the shared commitment of all our partners in finding customer solutions that impact the marketplace using Microsoft technologies.”

Microsoft honored its partners with awards across multiple categories, with finalists and winners chosen from thousands of submissions from more than 100 countries worldwide. Nintex was named a finalist in both the Office/SharePoint App Developer of the Year and Project and Portfolio Management Partner of the Year categories.

Nintex was recognized in the Office/SharePoint App Developer of the Year category for its development of Nintex Workflow Online, which enables businesses to run Nintex Workflow in the cloud. Nintex Workflow Online, available in preview mode in the Office Store, delivers the same powerful business process automation, graphic drag-and-drop workflow designer and advanced workflow features that Nintex Workflow on-premise products deliver to customers. It also integrates with many other Microsoft technologies, including Yammer, Windows Azure, Microsoft Project Server and Office 365. The product further extends business process automation to more people, places and devices, continuing the Nintex vision of delivering “Workflow for Everyone.”

On the heels of being named in the Gartner list of “Cool Vendors in Program and Portfolio Management, 2013,” Nintex Workflow for Project Server earned finalist honors in the Microsoft Project and Portfolio Management Partner of the Year category. Nintex Workflow for Project Server expands the reach of its high-productivity workflow process management tool to project and portfolio managers. This enables them to automate repetitive tasks, reduce project completion times and costs, and focus on innovation that drives organizational growth. New features introduced earlier this year integrate mobile and social capabilities to project management and process automation and allow workflows to connect to an ever-growing catalog of online services hosted in the cloud.

“We realize the importance of creating solutions that solve real business problems and have broad market appeal,” said Woolston. “We’ve worked closely with our network of customers and partners to ensure our products provide exceptional value. We’re thrilled Microsoft has again recognized Nintex as a leader in delivering quality solutions that improve our partners’ businesses.”

Award winners and finalists, chosen from global nominations, will be recognized at the 2013 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, the company’s premier annual event for industry partners, July 7–11 in Houston.
