Adacta’s representatives at WPC16
Among the 16,000 attendees from 114 countries were also representatives from Adacta. This year, the event was attended by Krešimir Mlinarič, General Manager, Adacta Zagreb; Josip Penavić, Head of Sales, Adacta Zagreb; and Marko Kolega, Head of Dynamics NAV Department, Adacta Zagreb. Together with other Microsoft’s partners from all over the world they were impressed by the event itself and especially by the news Microsoft shared with its partners.
What they had to say about the WPC16 event:
"This year’s event was really spectacular and interesting. Microsoft managed to share the news in a very appealing way and partners were really impressed - not only with the presentation, but also with the new solutions and services themselves. For Microsoft Dynamics Partners, the presentation on Dynamics 365, Microsoft’s integrated and cloud-based business solution, was really impressive. According to Microsoft’s roadmap, the new solution will be available for the Adriatic market in 2018 and we are looking forward to seeing Dynamics 365 in action.
The event was something special for Adacta as well, since we were there to accept a prestigious award – for the second time we joined the Microsoft President’s Club and are proud that Adacta is among the top 5% of all Microsoft partners worldwide.”
