London, 09 March 2022 – Softline (LSE: SFTL), the global IT and digital transformation provider, has been announced as one of the winners of Microsoft India’s Cloud Champions programme. This is another achievement for Softline’s three-dimensional growth strategy which further strengthens their position in such an important region.
The award sees Softline recognised by Microsoft as the leading Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) in India and cements its position in the growing segment of the Indian market in addition to the success of Softline with enterprise customers . It also underlines the high-quality service which Softline offers to small and medium sized businesses who have chosen Softline as their provider.
As one of 11 winners, out of over 700 CSP providers across India, Softline’s employees will now receive professional mentoring and coaching from Microsoft. Additionally, Softline India now has additional certification from Microsoft, further distinguishing the business as a regional leader in the industry.
