Every year, Microsoft Canada recognizes Microsoft partners who demonstrate excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology. Each of these partners plays an integral role in unlocking new opportunities for Canadian companies, and Microsoft is committed to helping their partner ecosystem build profitable businesses and successfully take their solutions to market.
"We are inspired and powered by our partners, with over 95% of Microsoft's commercial revenue coming through our partners. These annual awards are our opportunity to recognize all Microsoft partners that are making that possible by bringing cutting-edge solutions to complex business challenges and are helping customers overcome disruption and lead transformation in their industries across Canada," said Suzanne Gagliese, VP One Commerical Partner at Microsoft Canada.
This award recognizes a Regional Services Partner who is a Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) Direct Reseller or CSP Indirect Reseller focused on Small, Medium, and Corporate customer segments in a specific region of Canada (i.e., East, Central, West) driving impactful CSP growth.
"We are honoured to be recognized by Microsoft. We are proud to deliver a positive and unforgettable service experience to our clients. We understand the value of exceptional service is intended to set and consistently raise the standard of what is attainable. We couldn't have won this award without the help of our amazing team." Stated Andrew King, Managing Director at WebSan Solutions Inc.
Microsoft Canada presented these awards in 27 categories on July 15, 2021 as part of Microsoft's second virtual Inspire conference. Winners were selected based on the outstanding work the companies provided to their customers and community.
Microsoft recently released a ton of new financials, distribution, human resources & payroll and system enhancements in their recent October release of Microsoft Dynamics GP.

Spoofing emails are emails that look like they come from someone legitimate or from a well-known corporation. The most common spoofing emails is known as a whaling email, which is set up to be sent from a high-value target. Attackers will spend a lot of time on social media, discovering who is the CFO, CEO, or CIO of the company. An example of a spoofing email: Your CEO is requesting money or items be purchased through irregular channels. Luckily, there are ways to identify these and how to delete them.
1. Always check with the sender by phone call if you are unsure if they sent it. Take no action until you can verbally confirm that this is a legitimate email.
2. Look closely at the from address:
a. It may be spelled closely, but not exactly correct.
b. It may be from a domain that doesn't make sense the way it is spelled:
i. gogle.com instead of google.com.
3. The tasks in the email seem inconsistent with the personality or position held by the person it is said to be from.
Attackers are great at creating scenarios where the employee feels a sense of urgency or fear of consequences. Tools such as Microsoft 365 has advanced threat protection in place to help spot if a spoofing email has been sent to your inbox. Start protecting yourself and your business from spoofing emails by installing Microsoft 365. Want to learn more about how Microsoft 365 can benefit your business?

Project Types in Microsoft Dynamics GP
The Project Accounting module in Dynamics GP is a very robust application enabling users to monitor the financial results of a project. One of the best features with this module is that it ties in with all the other modules within Dynamics GP. Therefore, if an invoice needs to be posted it can be done in the same system. For a company to use the Project Accounting module correctly it must first understand its current project structure and what is required in terms of KPI’s and reporting. Once this has been decided the company will have to choose the project type to use for this project. There are three types of projects in Dynamics GP:
Cost Plus – Customer pays for the actual project cost plus an added margin percentage
Fixed Price – Customer pays a fixed fee for the project
Time and Materials – Customer is billed for all costs that are incurred on a project
Watch this FREE 5-minute video reviewing the three different project types in much more depth.
