Symantec has named IT reseller Softcat its UK ‘Partner of the Year’ for 2011-12. Softcat’s sales of Symantec solutions have grown across the board – within its enterprise, commercial and small and medium business (SMB) market sectors.
Softcat’s partner services team is enabling solutions incorporating Symantec products to a growing number of managed and hosted service providers. The IT provider has also grown, from a standing start, to become the seventh biggest reseller to the public sector.
At its UK and Ireland Partner Awards ceremony, held at the Partner Engage event in Rome, Symantec presented an additional award – for ‘Individual Contributor’ – to Softcat business manager Lance Williams in recognition of his team’s commitment in selling Symantec solutions. Both awards follow hot on the heels of Softcat’s ‘Commercial Partner of the Year’ win in 2011.
“Congratulations to Softcat for winning the ‘Partner of the Year’,” said Glenn Graham, UK channel director at Symantec. “Softcat’s dedication, commitment, knowledge, and sheer enthusiasm for selling Symantec, made them our winner.”
"Our partnership with Symantec is going from strength to strength,” commented Mr Williams. “We are making a big impact in the enterprise and SMB sectors, as well as with mid-market businesses, and we are delighted to accept these awards in recognition of our efforts.”
