Arlington, VA — September 6, 2016 — AvePoint Public Sector, a wholly owned subsidiary of AvePoint, Inc., today announced it has been named the Microsoft 2016 Federal Solution Partner of the Year. The U.S. Public Sector Partner of the Year awards highlight and recognize excellence and achievement among Microsoft partners who are transforming organizations via the cloud and producing exceptional results for U.S. Government, Education, and Health & Life Sciences organizations.

The U.S. Public Sector Partner of the Year awards were presented during Microsoft’s US Public Sector Industry Solution University (ISU) 2016 yearly event, where Microsoft’s Public Sector executive team was on site to congratulate AvePoint for its achievements. Winners were chosen from more than 100 organizations across public sector segment areas.

“The public sector is making enormous strides toward digital transformation to better serve constituents on the Federal, state, and local levels,” said Dux Raymond Sy, Chief Technology Officer, AvePoint Public Sector. “At AvePoint Public Sector, we’re helping agencies work simpler, faster, and smarter through our cloud-based, citizen-focused solutions, and this recognition from Microsoft is a testament to that fact.”

Over 800 government organizations rely on AvePoint Public Sector’s software and services to migrate, manage, and protect their SharePoint and Office 365 data as well as enhance citizen engagement. Headquartered in Arlington, VA, AvePoint Public Sector is a US Government GSA certified provider via strategic partnerships, as well as a Microsoft Partner of the Year Award winner for Public Sector: Public Safety & National Security.

“The 2016 Public Sector Partner of the Year Award winners represent the most innovative and transformative work being done across our partner community, serving the mission of customers across US Government, Education and Health & Life Sciences” said Curt Kolcun, Vice President, US Public Sector, Microsoft.

AvePoint’s recognition as the Microsoft 2016 Federal Solution Partner of the Year is due to its AvePoint Case Management (CMS) solution, which has recently evolved to become AvePoint Citizen Services.
