According to CEO Satya Nadella, some of the ways channel partners used Microsoft technology during the global coronavirus pandemic were “very good.”
Nadella specifically quoted the work of Yorktel, a collaboration and managed service provider in Eatontown, NJ, and RedBit, a Canadian software consulting, design and engineering company based in Burlington, Ontario.
“These are the types of partners who are working hard in communities that need solutions in the constrained world of COVID, and it was great to see them,” Nadella told CRN.
Yorktel has collaborated with the City of Hope, a cancer research and treatment center in Duarte, California, and nearby clinics in other cities. According to Jeremy Short, Senior Vice President of Microsoft Solutions at Yorktel, organizations need more effective and efficient collaboration tools than existing heterogeneous systems, and pandemics and remote work have reduced the initiative by two years. .. Yorktel, CRN’s 2020 Solution Provider 500 List No. 156, fully manages the City of Hope’s audiovisual, digital signage, and routing needs.
