Akari Solutions are a Microsoft Gold Partner with a twist.  Coupling technical excellence with a true focus on digital inclusion and diversity, Akari set out to create award winning products and solutions on the Microsoft cloud stack.  A female founded organisation Akari has seen unprecedented growth in the last eighteen months and is now working with customers small and large, including recognisable brands like the BBC, Renfrewshire Council and Network Rail to truly change how we live, learn and work in the digital age.

As well as holding nine Microsoft Gold competencies, Akari also hold Advanced Specialisations in Adoption and Change Management, Microsoft Teams Meetings, Microsoft Teams Calling and Microsoft Teams Deployment.  They were also a global finalist for the Microsoft 2020 security awards and most recently they were recognised again on a global level by winning the 2020 Microsoft Partner of the Year award for Diversity and Inclusion for their SaaS solution AVA.  A virtual assistant built on Microsoft Teams using AI that helps to build inclusive solutions, enhance productivity, and boost personal wellbeing.  They were also awarded finalist awards for Teamwork and Teamwork Apps and solutions for the solutions they have built around Microsoft Teams and Power Platform.

Margaret Totten Managing Director at Akari Said: “We are extremely excited to be entering into this partnership with Bytes.  We have been working closely with them over the last twelve months and their commitment to customer satisfaction, process excellence and digital inclusion matches our ethos well.  We are huge supporters of partnering with best in breed partners and truly feel that customers get more out of well-developed partnerships offering a range of expertise across multiple stacks and specialisms.  Bytes knowledge around licensing and true digital transformation is excellent and we feel it will give our customers a distinct offering as we wrap together experience in inclusion, change, licencing and deployment to create an outstanding service to our clients.

​Steve Harris ISV Manager at Bytes Said: “Akari stands out as a Partner because of their unique IP with AVA and ATS, their range of Gold Competencies at Microsoft and their highly skilled change management practice. Where we see real benefit to our customers is through their Digital inclusion focus, allowing customers to empower their employees and to create a level playing field through Microsoft technology for all”
