Codify Named Finalist in the 2010 Microsoft Partner Awards

Aberdeen-based software developer Codify has been selected as a finalist for the global Microsoft Partner Awards. These Awards recognise Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions over the past year.

The firm has made the last three in the Web Development Partner of the Year category. Microsoft selected web-based application Kinesys, which was developed by Codify specifically for oil and gas logistics specialist ASCO Group.

Aberdeen-based ASCO works for more oil majors in more locations throughout the world than any other oil and gas logistics company.

Mark Griffiths, managing director of Codify, said: "We are delighted with this nomination, which makes us one of the top three web developers in the world. It is a fantastic achievement that is testament to the quality of our software team".

"Congratulations to the 2010 Partner Award finalists for delivering such creative and superior Microsoft solutions and services," said Allison Watson, Corporate Vice President, Worldwide Partner Group, Microsoft Corp. "It's incredible to see the level of expertise our partners continue to exhibit as they create and deliver innovative solutions and services to grow their businesses, meet customer needs, and drive down costs."

By pioneering the use of Microsoft's Silverlight technology to develop Kinesys, Codify has simplified ASCO's global logistics operation. The web-based application supports the entire logistics process, from the warehouse to the oil platform and back-again. Fundamentally, it can be accessed both onshore via the internet and offshore via satellite.

ASCO's Doug More said, "Kinesys is an exciting development that is bringing huge benefits to our business. As a global operation in a dynamic industry, it's important that we can deploy resources rapidly and effectively - Kinesys helps us to do this".

Awards will be presented in a number of categories, with winners and finalists chosen from a pool of almost 3,000 entrants worldwide. The Custom Development Solutions, Web Development Partner of the Year Award recognises exceptional, innovative partners who focus on the development of customised web solutions built on Microsoft technologies.

Custom development partners deliver highly customised web solutions to support customers' unique business practices. They deliver one-off enhancements that enable customers to integrate existing systems with new technologies. Additionally, they develop extensions to existing Microsoft solutions that the customer may already employ.

This award honours Codify for serving unique customer needs by developing on and with Microsoft technologies and solutions in the area of custom web development.

Now employing 21 people, Codify has been in businesses for over 10 years, designing, building and supporting business software solutions. It works with companies to automate and improve core business processes through the use of custom software and actively develops customer service, financial management and information sharing applications.
