July 09, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
The TM Group, a leading provider of Microsoft Dynamics ERP and CRM solutions since 1984, today announced it has been recognized by Microsoft as the 2010 Distinction in Marketing Award recipient in the Best Existing Customer Marketing Campaign category.

The TM Group won the award for Vision 2010, the company's 12th Annual Microsoft Dynamics Conference.

The award-winning partner was chosen by Microsoft for their outstanding marketing execution of the Microsoft Dynamics campaign, in particular recognition that The TM Group provides its clients a great value in services and products.

Vision 2010, attended by a record-breaking 330 business professionals, was a free educational Microsoft Dynamics conference held in March at the MSU Management Education Center. The all-day event featured five tracks for Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft SL, Advanced IT, and Executive Leadership.

"Congratulations to the entire TM Group team," says Melanie Stoddard, Microsoft's Central Regional Partner Account Manager Lead. "It is great to see The TM Group get recognition for their outstanding work."

The Microsoft Distinction in Marketing awards are designed to recognize Microsoft Dynamics partners who use innovation and creativity to develop and execute clearly defined, high-impact marketing campaigns. Other campaign categories include: Industry Targeted, New Customer Lead Generation, ISV (Independent Software Vendor), and Overall Best Marketing.

Entries were evaluated by a team of judges, which included independent marketing consultants and Microsoft internal marketing experts. While there are thousands of Microsoft Dynamics Partners worldwide, these awards were given specifically to qualified North American Partners who submitted entries for consideration by Microsoft.

"We are extremely proud to have received the Distinction in Marketing Award for the Best Existing Customer Campaign award from Microsoft," says Judy Thomas, president of The TM Group. "This award recognizes our team's passion about our Vision conference and our goal to enable our clients to learn more about their software and increase their productivity with our products and services. For over 12 years, we have worked extremely hard to make Vision a high-value, educational event for our clients, prospects, partners, and employees and we are very grateful to have won this award in a field of such amazing channel marketing talent.

Vision has grown to be a very exciting, in-depth learning forum for the latest solutions for Microsoft Dynamics ERP and CRM solutions, and core Microsoft solutions like SharePoint, .Net, and Microsoft's emerging cloud technologies. In both planning and execution, our entire team went the extra mile to ensure that all of our guests from business owners and executives, to users, to our strategic partners all walked away with valuable information and new ideas to help their companies grow and prosper."
