The awards, presented at its ProPartners Conference in Australia, are for the year's top performers as measured by an evaluation matrix covering areas such as earnings growth, ability to demonstrate a core understanding of Veeam's portfolio, innovative strategies to address the needs of customers and of the services provided.

Noel Simpson, Lexel Systems CEO, says "We are extremely pleased to have won this award as it represents the significant investment Lexel has made into its cloud strategy and solutions, including its backup and DR offering. The Cloud is a powerful model for any business, but businesses still need to address the area of backup and DR as most cloud offerings do not offer mission critical resilience or point based recovery. Lexel has developed cloud solutions that provide the core benefits of cloud, but are also supported by the necessary tools that make them suitable for mission critical purposes."

Don Williams, Veeam ANZ vice president, says partners have been crucial to the vendor’s business. Given that we run on a 100% channel model, without our ProPartners, Veeam would not be where it is today."

We set an objective to become the #1 or #2 Lync Integrator in NZ for enterprise voice and we have certainly achieved that. But we didn’t stop there and have now proven the capability of both Lync and Lexel as the leading choice for the mission critical call centre and also the multi-tenant public cloud."
