TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 5, 2011) - QLogitek announced today that it has been selected as the winner in the Application Integration Partner of the Year category at the 2011 Microsoft Partner Network IMPACT Awards. The ninth annual IMPACT Awards recognize excellence across the large and diverse community of Microsoft's Canadian technology partners. The winners were announced at an award ceremony in Toronto on November 30, 2011.
