recognizing a client’s philanthropic leadership and business partnership.

ROVE, a leading systems integrator in the southeast region, today announced AvidXchange as the recipient of the 2019 ROVE Client Partner of the Year Award. This award is an ongoing tradition reflective of ROVE’s core company values in building lasting relationships with client-partners as well as common purpose that drives our innovations. The Client Partner of the Year Award is given to one client-partner each year that exemplifies philanthropic leadership as an organization and consistently strengthens business partnerships through strategic alignment within the communities they serve. ROVE is honored to recognize AvidXchange as this year’s Client Partner of the Year.

“The ROVE Client Partner of the Year Award really seeks to recognize organizations that stand out in both their philanthropic investments as well as their business partnerships. AvidXchange is being recognized as the ROVE Partner of the year this year because of the fact that they have done some amazing work around their philanthropic endeavors and investments as well as the way that they have creatively looked at extending their team through partnerships, such as they have with ROVE,” stated Marcus Jacoby, President at ROVE.

In 2019, more than 750 AvidXchange Foundation volunteers across seven office locations clocked 2,500 service hours at over 150 community and non-profit events.

“It’s important for companies to get to know their neighbors,” said Rob Phocas, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility at AvidXchange. “Volunteer opportunities are a great way to do this because it allows employees to create connections, both with their fellow teammates and people in the community.”

The Client Partner of the Year Award also recognizes the value of true partnership in business. This award highlights organizations that continue to successfully collaborate with ROVE and Cisco to drive both internal and external efficiencies.

“ROVE has helped give valuable time back to our teammates by standardizing our network infrastructure with Cisco and simplifying the way we support and deploy new solutions,” said Alan Fox, Senior Director of Information Security at AvidXchange.

“We value partners who are thought leaders in their industries that can help us think differently about how we work,” said Christina Quaine, Chief Information Security Officer and Senior Vice President of Technology Operations at AvidXchange. “The IT environment is complex, and partners like ROVE allow us to spend more time focused on our customers and less on internal processes.”
