Cisco, the worldwide technology leader, presented Softcat with its Commercial Partner of the Year award for UK and Ireland (UK&I) at its 2016 Cisco Partner Summit, earlier this week.
The Cisco Partner Summit, held this year in San Diego, California, is an invitation-only event for top partners from around the world. It offers opportunities for executive networking, strategy discussions and technology updates.
Cisco judged Softcat as worthy of its Commercial Partner of the Year UK&I award, because of the reseller's broad capabilities, its expertise in selling Cisco solutions and its exceptional growth in this period.
Colin Brown, Softcat managing director, who attended the Partner Summit commented: "Cisco awards are highly coveted and it's an honour to be chosen for our competence across the entire Cisco solutions portfolio, including networking, security, data centre and collaboration. We are highly experienced in the commercial – or mid-market – sector, and our approach, which is to proactively work with customers to understand their business problems, aligns perfectly with Cisco's capabilities."
Softcat is a Cisco Gold Partner and has invested heavily in Cisco pre and post sales resources, including field-based and technical support staff, who are qualified to the highest Cisco accreditations across all of its architectural areas.
"The experience of our technical team is critical to the successful delivery of Cisco-based solutions" continued Colin. "Our engineers are involved in the design, planning and deployment of the technology, and crucially, in providing on-going support to ensure that the solutions we put in place achieve the business outcomes that our customers want. As well as our technical team, we have also invested in forging a strong relationship with Cisco's UK regional sales team, which is going to give us a solid platform for future sales growth."
Softcat won Cisco's award for the Enterprise Networking Partner of the Year UK&I in 2015.
