"Our success is attributed to dedication and teamwork -- teamwork among the combined Wakefield, Tectura, and Microsoft teams."

The Pinnacle Awards, established in 1997, are presented yearly and recognize Microsoft Dynamics customers who have achieved notable accomplishments with their Microsoft Dynamics applications.

Customers, partners, and team members contributed Pinnacle Award nominations. The 2007 Pinnacle Awards were presented in 17 categories. Wakefield Canada Inc. was selected for the Role Based CEO Award because of its use of multiple Microsoft solutions to drive overall business performance across its organization.

It is an innovative new corporation with a vision for growth which includes integrated Microsoft technology.
