Cisco, the worldwide technology leader has presented Softcat with its award for achieving the greatest EMEA year-on-year sales growth for its Unified Computing System (UCS) product line. The award ceremony took place at Cisco's 'Platform for Success' data centre conference held recently in Rome.
The conference brings together leading Cisco partners and accredited resellers from across Europe to learn about new UCS features, share best practice and celebrate customer success.
As the recipient of one of only three awards presented at the conference, Softcat was chosen on the basis of its exceptional sales growth for UCS solutions. Softcat's projected year-on-year UCS sales will top 200%, some ten times greater than the channel average.
"We're delighted to collect our second Cisco award of 2016," commented Colin Brown, Softcat's managing director. "There is a strong business trend towards adopting cloud services, and Cisco's technology provides a flexible solution for organisations that want to centralise their applications and data within a data centre, but have the option to manage variable workloads by bursting into the cloud."
Softcat is a Cisco Gold Partner with an experienced and capable team of field-based and technical support staff, qualified with the highest Cisco accreditations across all of its architectural areas.
"Our success with Cisco is down to our overall approach – not least the breadth and depth of experience within our sales and technical teams. We enjoy an excellent working relationship with Cisco, and make the most of the talent that they have on offer. Perhaps most importantly of all, we work hard to understand our customer's business problems and collaborate with them to prepare, plan, design, implement and support their data centre and cloud requirements."
Softcat won the Commercial Partner of the Year award for UK and Ireland at Cisco's 2016 Cisco Partner Summit in March, and Cisco's award for the Enterprise Networking Partner of the Year UK and Ireland in 2015.
