Justin, a director at Tyneside based technology company Synergi IT, has received a top accolade at Microsoft Ignite in Chicago, the biggest Microsoft conference in 2015. The 5-day event brought together more than 23,000 IT people from around the world to train and hear about the latest Microsoft and partner technologies.

Justin was awarded the title of Nintex Virtual Technology Evangelist (VTE), one of two in the UK to achieve such recognition and among only 17 in the world.

Justin, already one of the UK’s foremost specialists in Microsoft Cloud, Office 365 and SharePoint, is also a skilled user and adviser in Nintex, an innovative workflow platform and third party tool for SharePoint and Office 365.

Nintex used the Microsoft Ignite event to exhibit and showcase new cloud and mobile capabilities of its product. Justin Short attended the event and was on the stand passing on advice to other IT professionals.

Justin, who has worked with Nintex technologies since 2008, said: “It is a real honour to be named among the inaugural Nintex VTE class. Essentially, it acknowledges my professional expertise in the technologies and reflects the depth of expertise within Synergi IT.

“It recognises our ability to successfully develop and deliver innovative client solutions, helping businesses take the work out of workflow processes, using technology to make business systems easier to use.”

Nintex is a global leader in workflow technology built on Microsoft’s versatile SharePoint and Cloud platforms. It enables users to automate dozens of business critical processes.
