“We are so fortunate to have a client community that propels us forward, and this award is truly a recognition of their leadership and vision in the role that technology can play to drive value and achieve their goals,” says Jody Sagen, Director of Technology Experience and Enablement at WBM Technologies. “WBM’s methodologies are specifically engineered to drive rapid and meaningful modern workplace adoption, and we are seeing our clients become more collaborative and productive as a result. The business outcomes they are achieving through technology enablement are incredible – it’s definitely rewarding to be a part of.”

WBM’s Director of Procurement Services, Ashley Schell, believes that for the Surface Impact Award “we have our customers to thank. They continually push our team to innovate and bring value through procurement – from sophisticated warehousing and logistics practices to the ability to advocate for them on pricing and availability. Helping our clients overcome the supply chain shortages of the past 16 months has proven the value of procurement services even more, and this will continue for the foreseeable future. It’s no coincidence that WBM is a national leader in modern workplace adoption as well, as our customers are seeing devices as an integral part of a single objective – to deliver a world class technology experience for their end users.”

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.

”To see the WBM team bring these national awards to Western Canada really underscores the incredible spirit and determination around us, from our team that has grown over 400 strong through the pandemic, to the incredible support and belief we receive from Microsoft Canada, and above all, the amazing WBM client community that fuels us. They have rallied around each other’s successes and lessons learned, and they’ve pushed through such a difficult time making sure that they remain productive, are able to collaborate, and stay connected. They’ve driven us to develop methodologies and process that are now being recognized as the best in Canada,” stated WBM Vice President Brett Bailey. “To be recognized as the national leader in both Modern Workplace achievement, and Microsoft Surface technology is a reflection of how important it is to deliver an experience that is built simply around people, and the work they are striving to achieve. The right device, the right systems, and the right level of end user understanding and proficiency. When these factors are missing, technology can be a frustration, but when they come together, technology can change everything, and create a ‘wow factor’ experience that helps maximize the value and purpose driving each and every one of our customers.”

“We are pleased to recognize WBM Technologies as this year’s recipient of the Modern Workplace Impact Award and the Surface Impact Award,” said Suzanne Gagliese, Vice President, Global Partner Solutions, Microsoft Canada. “Amid a challenging year, our partners have demonstrated dedication to innovation and customer excellence by leveraging cutting-edge solutions to solve complex business challenges and overcome disruption.”
