Reflecting on 2023: A Year of Innovation and Transformation
We’ll start this with gratitude. Gratitude for our customers, our colleagues, and the relationships we’ve cultivated over the years. Those relationships are what drive the decisions we make to ensure we are always providing value to those who matter most, including opening our Microsoft Experience Center. With that said, here are a few things that really mattered to us in 2023.
Microsoft Partner of the Year Finalist
Magenium has been a dedicated Microsoft partner since our inception in 2007. It took a lot of people a lot of years to build this place into the top-tier partner that we are today, and in 2023 our efforts were recognized by earning Microsoft Partner of the Year finalist in the Converged Communications category. Winning this is a reflection of our collective expertise in Microsoft Teams for meetings & meeting rooms, Teams calling, and our ability to support both of those with our Managed Services.
Grand Opening of our Microsoft Experience Center
The next evolution of Magenium really began in earnest with signing for our new office space at 3025 Highland Parkway, Suite 275 in Downers Grove IL. The intent of this space was always to showcase the latest in technology from Microsoft and provide our customers a place to see what is possible.
What we wound up with was a facility that exceed our lofty goals. Almost everyone who walks these halls comes away with a sense of “I want that to be my office” and we couldn’t be prouder of what we built.
A New Logo, Look & Feel
Since our acquisition by AVI Systems in 2018, our back-office teams have worked to integrate the best of both organizations. Together we’ve launched new service offerings and more to bring our Microsoft consulting services to AVI Systems customers, and AVI Systems capabilities to Magenium customers.
Operationally we were probably a bit ahead of where we were from a brand perspective, so we felt the time was right to rebrand ourselves to emphasize our alignment as an AVI Systems company. So yes, while we are an AVI Systems company, we are a very specific type of AVI Systems company.
Looking Ahead to 2024
As we look ahead to 2024, we are full of excitement because we have new service offerings ready to serve our customer’s needs and, of course, our beautiful new facility. If you’re looking to improve the return on your Microsoft investment, we are here to help and you can contact us to get started.
Have a Happy New Year!
