Having met the program criteria including business results, industry expertise and subject matter expertise Cegeka Group has been selected to participate in the EMEA Microsoft Dynamics Industry Partner Program.

 Program participants are eligible for specific incentives that will help build reach and impact to customers in the Food Manufacturing & Distribution Industry. The program is intended to showcase Microsoft’s most successful ERP and CRM partners within specific industries, and provide investment to those partners to help them grow.

“This industry logo is an important international recognition by Microsoft of our continuous investments in the food manufacturing and distribution industry over the past 15 years. This certification not only rewards our proven track record, customer satisfaction and business expertise in the food industry, but also reflects our strong commitment to further developing our position to become the best-in-class and leading European business application partner in the food industry. Research perfomed on 18,500 companies revealed a lot of potential, which we want to seize together with Microsoft,” says Dominique De Vos, Solution Manager at Cegeka.

“The European food industry, driven by the evolution in retail and EU legislation, is in a state of consolidation, and these organizations are looking at strong business automation. Enterprise resource planning plays an essential role in this process. Microsoft Dynamics for Food will be one of the solutions that we will promote throughout Europe. With services for collaboration, e-commerce, online support, business intelligence and cloud services, Cegeka Group can offer every resource needed by food and manufacturing organizations in their digital transformation,” says Christoph Neut, CCO at Cegeka Group.

“The Microsoft Dynamics Industry Partner Program is designed to better serve our customers in priority industries and to work with the most innovative companies to provide tailored solutions that enable businesses to better engage with their customers”, said Victor Moralaes, VP Partner Sales & Strategy, Microsoft Dynamics. “Given Cegeka Group’s considerable experience and positive impact in the Food Manufacturing industry, we are excited about our working together to expand our reach and best serve our mutual customers”.

In a first phase Cegeka will launch the program in five countries: Austria, Belgium, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. On a local level, the divisions will also work for numerous other sectors.
