Area9, leading technology services and solutions provider has been named finalist at the ARN 2021, Innovation Awards.

In 2021, the ARN Innovation Awards will honour the ICT channel across eight categories, spanning Partner Innovation, Tech Innovation, Australia-wide Innovation, Start-up Innovation, Personal Innovation, Vendor Innovation, Distributor Innovation and Hall of Fame.

“ARN congratulates Area9 on becoming a finalist in the Australia-Wide Innovation Regional category,” said Cherry Yumul, vice president of Strategic Partnerships and Innovation at IDG. “The 15th running of ARN Innovation Awards has undoubtedly captured the most challenging yet transformative period of the Australian channel”.

“On the one hand, battling against the odds to keep businesses running during COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions, yet on the other, raising the bar for industry excellence through the deployment of bleeding-edge technologies and solutions. Such juxtaposition perfectly illustrates the DNA of this industry – tough and transformative in equal measure.

Area9 Director Simon Watt commented “This is the first time Area9 has entered the ARN Innovation awards and we’re thrilled to have made it through to the final stage. For us as a regionally based organisation it’s very rewarding to be recognised for the work that we do with many important organisations outside of the two most-populated metropolitan areas in the country, Sydney and Melbourne. Every day our team is delivering exceptional outcomes for our customers and we’re hugely invested in continuously improving and expanding our portfolio of services.”

“This year’s highlights include the expansion of our enterprise services with the addition of new partnerships in the cloud and automation segments, specialist network analytics services and B2B procurement portal. It’s fantastic to have been appointed a finalist at this important industry event.”
