This year, Microsoft recognized partners in 43 categories that celebrate each of the core partner competencies, including cloud technology, public sector, citizenship, sales excellence and many more. More than 2,300 entries were collected from 108 different countries worldwide; the award finalists and winners were selected from a group of nominations based on their commitment to customers, their solution’s market impact, and exemplary use of Microsoft technologies.
Our winning solution, VIRTUAL COLLECTOR©, was chosen as winner in the Application Development competency. Developed using Microsoft technology, VIRTUAL COLLECTOR© is an online tax collector built to increase the tax collection revenues of the Puerto Rico Treasury Department and the Puerto Rico Government Development Bank. It represented an increase of $80 million in Sales and Use Tax collections for the 2014 fiscal year and their projections suggest a $170 million increase for next fiscal year. Likewise, the online collector helped decreased paper-based transactions by 98% which in turn reducing all costs associated with the handling of numerous paper forms.
