Orckestra, the leading provider of modern commerce solutions built on Microsoft Azure, is pleased to announce they have been chosen as finalists in two distinguished categories for the 2016 Microsoft IMPACT Awards, for solutions built on their Orckestra Commerce OrchestrationTM platform. Recognizing the outstanding work Microsoft partners do in delivering modern solutions, the IMPACT Awards celebrate innovation in technology that makes an impact in the Canadian market.

“We are honored to have been recognized as finalists for the IMPACT Awards once again this year, not only in one but two categories,” said Vincent Trépanier, Orckestra Executive Vice-President & Co-Founder. “The Microsoft Partner Network has been an integral part of the Orckestra growth strategy from day one. Along with our past IMPACT wins, the 2016 finalist designations for our work last year are a true testament to the technological contributions Orckestra is making towards retail innovation for our customers.”

As a finalist for the Enterprise Cloud Platform Innovation Award, Orckestra demonstrated industry-leading innovation with the digital commerce transformation of a number of top specialty retailers in Canada. By providing a single commerce platform for traditional retailers to extend their digital commerce and operations capabilities, Orckestra is helping to level the playing field in the industry by providing exceptional customer experiences for retailers online and in their physical stores.

Along with leading digital asset management company, and fellow Microsoft partner MediaValet, Orckestra has also achieved finalist status for the Winning Together Award. Together, MediaValet and Orckestra created a solution for a leading Canadian sporting goods retailer that fully demonstrates the breadth of Microsoft products and the solutions created from them.

“Together with the highly talented team at Orckestra, we leveraged each other’s technical and product strengths to build a profitable, robust and highly scalable solution for the customer - exclusively on Microsoft Azure,” commented David MacLaren, founder and CEO of MediaValet. “All of us at MediaValet are extremely proud of being named finalist for the ‘Winning Together’ award alongside Orckestra.”
