Last night Softcat accepted the Enterprise Networking Partner of the Year UK&I award at Cisco’s global Partner Summit in Canada. Colin Brown, managing director at Softcat, accepted the award from Cisco’s Phil Smith, senior vice president, UKI and Richard Roberts, MD partner and commercial organisation, in recognition of partner excellence in the provision of switching, routing and wireless solutions.

Gold partner Softcat delivers Cisco’s products to customers across the mid-market, from retailers and hospitality providers to corporates and manufacturers, reflecting the need for secure and agile connectivity and systems in all organisations. It also provides customers with specialist partner-shared support service dubbed ‘SoftCare’, which offers customers complete 24/7 support.

Colin said: “I’m delighted to accept this award in recognition of the strong partnership we’ve developed with Cisco. Our 50-strong team of networking sales specialists and highly qualified pre-sales team work closely with Cisco to deliver and support their range of solutions and we only expect that to grow over the coming years. The Cisco team ensure our staff receive great technical and sales training from their product sales specialists, which helps us to maintain optimal product knowledge. This means that when we talk to customers we are able to offer them a high level of expertise and advise them on solutions that address all their needs, be that wireless connectivity, routing, or security.”

He added, “As organisations look to promote trends like BYOD, mobile working and collaboration, we’ve witnessed a growing requirement for security and wireless networking solutions, which we’ve been able to provide using Cisco’s industry leading solutions. I’d like to thank Cisco for this award and look forward to a long and successful partnership.”

Cisco’s annual partner summit is an opportunity for its partners across the world to congregate and hear Cisco’s plans for the year ahead. At this year’s summit one key focus was on the Internet of Everything, and delegates from Cisco discussed the potential for future applications.
