Enlighten Designs, a Kiwi-owned and operated creative technical agency with a presence in both New Zealand and the US, has earned Microsoft’s coveted Co-Sell Ready designation through the Microsoft One Commercial Partner Program.

Enlighten now joins an exclusive group of global software integrators that Microsoft has selected for comprehensive sales and marketing support and go-to-market initiatives.

Through the Microsoft Co-Sell Ready programme, Microsoft’s global sales force will work directly with Enlighten Designs to accelerate their world-class solutions in data and AI.

To attain this designation, Enlighten Designs met Microsoft’s stringent requirements for proven competency, capability, and cloud expertise.

Under the new partnership, Enlighten Designs is already working with Microsoft Azure field sales teams and partners on targeted customer opportunities to mutual success.

Enlighten Designs is a thought leader in the disruptive model of data-driven storytelling leading them to create unique value-added solutions in data and analytics with Azure, Power BI, and Power BI embedded, making them an ideal partner for Co-Sell Ready status.

Already the Delivery Partner for Microsoft’s global Modern Journalism Team with clients like The Associated Press and Vox Media, Co-Sell Ready status will enable Enlighten to bring these solutions to more customers.

“We are very excited to welcome Enlighten Designs as a new SI partner specialising in the data and analytics space,” says Microsoft New Zealand partner development manager Ryan Tarak.

“Microsoft’s sales and marketing investment in the Co-Sell Ready programme demonstrates our commitment to supporting partners’ go-to-market efforts and their success. Working together we can achieve more and empower customers to achieve more too.”

Enlighten Designs’ wide spectrum of clients ranges from local Waikato start-ups to multinational billion dollar organisations including Air New Zealand, The Associated Press, Livestock Improvement Corporation, various city councils, and Red Bull.
