Blue Connections wins the Lenovo IDG Australian Reseller of the Year 2022!

We’re proud to share the news that Blue Connections IT was awarded the Lenovo IDG Australian Reseller of the Year 2022 at the recent Lenovo Partner Gala Awards! Such an amazing team effort.

Lenovo 2020 PCSD Australian Innovation Partner of the Year!

Congratulations to the Blue Connections IT team for winning Lenovo’s 2020 PCSD Australian Innovation Partner of the Year award.

As our industry becomes more and more competitive, and customers not only expect more but demand more from partners, the status quo will no longer yield the success of the past. Companies need to differentiate themselves in the market through creative and innovative initiatives to grab the attention of the customer. This not only maintains relationships and creates stickiness but also creates new interest to get that valuable foot in the door.
The winner of this category is a master in all of the above and successfully delivers initiatives that are different, fun and innovative while also making sure there is a core message that resonates and differentiates.
It gives me great pleasure to announce our innovative partner of the year winner: Blue Connections.
