FREDERICTON (NB) – Kognitiv Spark today announced it has been named a finalist in the 2019 Microsoft Mixed Reality Partner of the Year Award. The company was honored among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.
“We’re so proud to be recognized as a finalist for this award because it validates our signature approach of never stopping at good enough,” says Yan Simard, CEO of Kognitiv Spark. “It reinforces our position as a world-class mixed reality worker support platform and is a testament to our dedication to empowering workers with the autonomy and confidence to perform their best. We could not have come this far without the collaboration and support from Microsoft, our clients, and the rest of our network and partners.”
The company delivers industrial worker support software designed for the Microsoft HoloLens, leveraging augmented reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR). The company recently announced a partnership with the Royal Canadian Navy to test drive a Mixed Reality Remote Assistant Support (MIRRAS) system as part of a project that aims to improve maintenance and repairs aboard active naval vessels.
Awards were presented in several categories, with winners chosen from a set of more than 2,900 entrants from 115 countries worldwide. Kognitiv Spark was recognized for providing outstanding solutions and services in Mixed Reality.
The Mixed Reality Partner of the Year Award recognizes a partner that has designed, developed, and deployed a solution that helps customers accelerate their digital transformation using Mixed Reality technology and Azure services.
“It’s an honor to recognize finalists and winners of the Microsoft 2019 Partner of the Year Awards,” said Gavriella Schuster, Corporate Vice President, One Commercial Partner, Microsoft Corp. “These companies are successfully leading their industries, building intelligent solutions, addressing complex business challenges and making more possible for customers around the world.
