Strategic Thought Limited wins Distinguished Achievement Award for EMEA at prestigious IBM Lotus Awards.


Strategic Thought Limited was honoured with a Distinguished Achievement Award at the 11th annual IBM Lotus Awards (formerly known as the Lotus Beacon Awards.) At the worldwide awards Strategic Thought triumphed over two other finalists to win the top prize in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa).


IBM Lotus Awards recognise exceptional IBM PartnerWorld members that specialise in Lotus software solutions and have excelled at providing quality products, innovations solutions and superior services to customers.


The winner of the Distinguished Achievement Award is selected by the IBM Lotus sales teams and must demonstrate excellence in revenue attainment, innovation and loyalty along with the ability to open new regional markets.


Strategic Thought has over 15 years of development, integration and delivery experience with skills ranging across the entire development lifecycle from architectural design to testing and delivery management. The company has adopted IBM Portal, Collaboration and Web Content Management technologies to drive significant revenue growth in the SMB (small medium business) sector. IBM has seen Strategic Thought go from a minor influencer to the leading IBM Business Partner for this technology within EMEA.


“We are delighted to receive a Distinguished Achievement Award from IBM. This International award is a reflection of our service capability and quality management.” said Richard Higgs, CEO of Strategic Thought.


During 2004 Strategic Thought also became the first software business partner in EMEA to be awarded an IBM Certificate of Excellence following an audit of its development skills and project delivery processes in addition to its IBM accreditations.
