It was announced, that DataSentics has won the 2020 Microsoft Partner of the Year in the Czech Republic. We were honoured among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.

“This prestigious award has shown us that partnering with Microsoft a few years ago was the right decision and this partnership is mutually beneficial. It makes us both proud of our previous achievements and motivated to build upon our experience in the future. Finally, this great recognition brings gratification to all the people in DataSentics who have participated in developing the winning solution,”

said Hubert Šváb, VP and Retail Director at DataSentics.

The Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards recognizes Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions during the past year. Awards were granted in several categories, with honourees chosen from a set of more than 3,300 submitted nominations from over 100 countries worldwide. We were recognized for providing outstanding solutions and services in the Czech Republic. Microsoft also appreciated our continuous innovation and proactive customer approach and our role during the COVID-19 outbreak with our participation on the national quarantine application and data analysis.

Our winning solution is called Shelf Inspector. It is a computer vision application for retailers that helps them assess the display quality standards in supermarkets quickly and objectively using only handheld devices. Behind the front-end, there is a neural network and a model trained in Azure Machine Learning. The most important benefit for customers is optimizing store checks for sales reps and merchandisers. At first, the data collection was done manually. Now it takes just a few minutes for a single store. Subsequently, their routes could have been optimized, which leads to more time savings. Multiple implementations in the retail sector have secured us the Microsoft Partner of the Year Award in the Czech Republic.

Gavriella Schuster, the corporate vice president, One Commercial Partner, Microsoft, said:

“It is an honor to recognize the winners and finalists of the 2020 Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards. These partners go above and beyond, delivering timely solutions that solve the complex challenges that businesses around the world face — from communicating and collaborating virtually to helping customers realize their full potential with Azure cloud services, and beyond. I am proud to honor and congratulate each winner and finalist.”

We at DataSentics believe that this award will bring us new opportunities to help more customers modernize and digitalize the way they approach retail challenges by utilizing our Artificial Intelligence capabilities along with Microsoft technology.
