Next week Rod Drury will be attending the Microsoft Partner Conference as a keynote speaker, discussing ‘Kiwi innovation’ – the Xero story and our relationship with Microsoft that has contributed to making it all happen. The conference is on September 19 and 20 in Auckland.
In April 2007 Xero became a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and Microsoft’s first Independent Software Vendor Partner to be certified as a hosted solution provider in New Zealand. Microsoft technologies have been an essential part of Xero from day one, with Microsoft providing support and tools to help us on our journey.
At the conference Rod will discuss the benefits of being Gold Partnered Certified, engaging with Microsoft, and why this was a key milestone in Xero’s progression.
The conference features New Zealand and international Microsoft partners who will discuss their knowledge and experience of being a part of Microsoft’s partner community, and how it adds value to their businesses.
As well as the conference, Microsoft is hosting a sailing event – the Auckland Harbour Regatta 2007 – and a black tie partner awards dinner. Read more information about the events here.
