Customer Excellence awards totally rock. I love the fact that Microsoft celebrates the successes of their customers. Let’s face it, Apple’s never given you an award for your innovative addition of “Baby got back” to your iPod’s workout playlist. Google’s never recognized you for fine tuning that search to find just the right birthday gift for your kids. Microsoft however, may recognize for innovative implementations of Dynamics GP or for team work in pulling together to resolve complex issues. Well, the Customer Excellence Award Nominations are now open from January 21 - February 7, 2011.
