Mint Group Wins Gold Award for EMEA Region in the 2019 IAMCP Global Partner-to-Partner Awards Program
Johannesburg, Gauteng – July 17, 2019 – Mint Group is delighted to announce that, for the second year running, the global technology innovator won the gold award for the EMEA region in the annual IAMCP (International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners) global partner-to-partner (P2P) competition hosted at the global Microsoft Inspire Conference in Las Vegas.
“This award is an important recognition of the transformation driven in South Africa’s education and health industries and how we achieve that through partnership,” stated Mint Group CEO Carel Du Toit.
Availing next-generation health and education experiences, the Mint Vision Application is changing the face of service delivery and enhancing patient and student experiences by placing people first.
“An excellent example showcasing the powerful capabilities of this solution is the education transformation project that we are implementing at the University of Venda (Univen),” said du Toit
In 2018 the University of Venda partnered with Mint Group and subsequently became the first University in South Africa to pilot the use of Artificial Intelligence for access control.
From the results achieved the University will roll-out multiple applications of AI across campus, availing the first Intelligent University in South Africa. ”Through the powerful capabilities of Azure, we empowered Univen to resolve the issue of safety, streamline staff productivity, student management, and address student performance through sentiment analysis and tracking with the Mint Vision App – a solution that will continuously drive transformation.”
Du Toit added that a crucial driver to the success achieved at Univen was the partnerships that Mint Group established to ensure delivery of only the best-of-class skills and expertise coupled with a holistic solution offering.
Mint Group partnered with Gijima as the hardware solutions provider and, to ensure local EME empowerment, Mint also partnered with access management provider TAMS, which will assist with the hardware requirements.
Further driving community empowerment, Mint hired locals in the Venda community to assist with the physical implementation of the Univen transformation project.
