Leading Microsoft Partner Also Inducted into Exclusive Licensing Solutions Providers Program

LOS ANGELES, CA - August 6, 2013 - En Pointe Technologies, one of the largest Microsoft Systems Integrators and Licensing Solutions Providers (LSPs), today announced that it was awarded WR (Western Region) LAR Partner of the Year by Microsoft at the 2013 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference. En Pointe was selected for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.

Jane Dickson, Microsoft's general manager for the WR, presented En Pointe with the award, citing the exemplary collaboration between its licensing and services teams, which uniquely positions the company to drive greater value around the Microsoft portfolio. As a LAR (Large Account Reseller), En Pointe provides licensing and services to enterprises, serving as a trusted advisor to help maximize their EA (Enterprise Agreement), select and open volume licensing.

"This Microsoft Partner of the Year award validates our commitment to drive innovative solutions around the Microsoft portfolio," said Bob Bogle, senior vice president, sales, En Pointe Technologies. "We are thankful for the trust our customers have placed in us. This award is a great progression as we assume our newly designated role as one of the only Licensing Solutions Providers (LSP) and Surface-authorized partners. This accreditation builds further momentum as we continue to differentiate ourselves in the channel, supporting the devices and services mantra from Microsoft."

"Looking forward, En Pointe will continue to be a leader as we expand our Microsoft cloud practice. As the first LAR to migrate 1 million seats to Office365, we will continue to lead the charge with emerging cloud solutions," added Mike Hogan, Microsoft general manager, En Pointe Technologies. "Our Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offerings and designation in the Windows Azure Circle Partner Program are significant differentiators that we anticipate will foster further growth for us. All of our Microsoft capabilities considered, En Pointe is the partner best positioned to deliver against the entire Microsoft stack."
