I am pleased and very proud to announce our SBSC Partners who have recently been chosen as finalists for our FY09 Impact Awards. There are 21 SBSC Partner finalists, in 16 categories out of 25, which is amazing – well done. Please see below for the list of our SBSC Partners who are currently finalists, including our own category Small Business Specialist of the Year.

Since 2003, Microsoft Canada replaced all of its previous technology partner awards with a unified program that also recognizes customer service, marketing, and contribution to the community. Microsoft Canada has outlined 26 categories to honour the achievements of top technology partners. Microsoft Partner Program IMPACT Awards are open to all Technology partners of the Microsoft Partner Program.

The Small Business Specialist award honors a member of the Small Business Specialist Community who demonstrates innovation for deploying a small business Microsoft-based solution (fewer than 50 employees or fewer than 25 PCs) with a tangible impact on the customer’s business.
