“Cherwell is excited to work with Microsoft to integrate Cherwell’s ITSM and ITAM solutions with System Center and with products across the Microsoft platform,” said Craig Harper, president of Cherwell, in a statement. “It is an ideal partnership for customers who appreciate practical solutions to tough problems.”
Digium: Telephony solution provider Digium recently announced the winners of its 2015 Pinnacle Awards, which recognized the company’s global channel partner ecosystem for their success in the marketplace.
Some of this year’s most notable winners included Chromis Technology, which won the U.S. partner of the Year Award, as well as Jenne, Inc., which was named distributor of the year in the United States. Digium also handed out awards for its Direct Marketing Partner of the year as well as its top VAR partners.
"Each year, it's an honor to recognize so many of our channel partners who have committed to servicing their customers and growing their businesses with Digium solutions," said Jim Butler, director of Worldwide Channel Sales at Digium.
