MENLO PARK, Calif., June 28, 2022 – Global consulting firm Protiviti has been named a finalist of the 2022 Microsoft Partner of the Year awards in both the Compliance and Power Automate categories. Protiviti was honored among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.

“One of our values at Protiviti is innovation. Bringing together our deep risk consulting capabilities and industry experience, coupled with the power of Microsoft, allows us to build innovative solutions for our clients,” said Cory Gunderson, executive vice president, Global Solutions, Protiviti. “We’re excited to have worked closely with Microsoft to build valuable solutions for our clients that transform their business in a meaningful way.”

Protiviti was recognised in the Power Automate category for helping global hospitality company Hilton streamline its RFP process and find efficiencies with Microsoft Power Automate. Protiviti’s Microsoft experts built a custom solution that saved Hilton an average of 7.5 hours a day, or 1,950 hours per year. This solution has accelerated Hilton’s speed to market, allowing the company to respond faster while winning more sales opportunities and increasing its ROI.

Protiviti was recognised in the Compliance category for helping a large government entity outside the U.S. quickly roll out Microsoft 365 to enable remote work for approximately 60,000 employees while maintaining its information compliance requirements. This included validating and developing a solution to deploy sensitive information not previously authorised by the client within Microsoft 365.

The Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards recognise Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered outstanding Microsoft-based applications, services and devices during the past year. Awards were classified in various categories, with honorees chosen from a set of more than 3,900 submitted nominations from more than 100 countries worldwide.
