Braintree Wins Intelligent ICT Award for Innovative Cloud Services

Braintree, a trusted Microsoft partner and product optimiser, has won the prestigious Intelligent ICT Award for Intelligent Cloud Solutions Provider. The award recognises Braintree’s work in facilitating a comprehensive ERP system upgrade for prominent power tool distributor, Stevens & Co. The Intelligent ICT Awards for Africa were held earlier this month to honour innovation, excellence and transformative technology across the regional IT sector.

The Intelligent ICT Awards celebrates the best of the IT Industry in Africa and highlights the many diverse and innovative ICT implementation projects taking place across the continent.

Despite the inherent challenges of such a significant transformation, Braintree’s partnership with Stevens & Co yielded a successful migration with minimal disruptions to their operations by transitioning from Great Plains Software to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Richard Stevens, Chief Financial Officer at Stevens & Co, says that this award is a testament to the people involved in the project, their commitment and the level of communication between the companies. “Stevens & Co is grateful to the Braintree team involved in supporting the move to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. Each person took ownership and carried their responsibilities proudly, which resulted in an extremely successful project. I commend all those involved from both companies and they should be extremely proud of themselves and what this award represents”.

Through this partnership and their adoption of Business Central, Stevens & Co has experienced noticeable improvements in document management, product traceability, and warehouse efficiencies.

“This award underscores our commitment to drive meaningful digital transformations through innovative solutions. This partnership showcases how the right technology can significantly enhance a business’s capabilities and operational efficiencies, and pave the way for continued growth and success. We are so proud of this award and the work done with Stevens & Co in setting new benchmarks for excellence in the ICT industry,” says Avril Howes, Strategic Head SMC Dynamics 365 Business Central at Braintree.
