Softcat is finishing 2015 with a bang, rising two places in CRN’s UK Top VAR Report 2015 to take third place. It has been a particularly action-packed year for the IT infrastructure provider, which floated on the London Stock Market in November.
CRN’s annual rundown centres on the UK's 100 biggest resellers. This year Softcat was one of the four companies that achieved the biggest growth by sales volume. As CRN stated simply in its report: “Softcat has carried on doing what it does best: growing."
CEO Martin Hellawell, who led preparations for Softcat’s recent IPO, said: “We’re delighted to feature in CRN’s comprehensive listing of the top UK resellers, and to rise to the third largest VAR in the UK is a brilliant achievement for us and a fantastic end to the year. We’ve come a long way in a relatively short time and it’s been a pleasure to see the company rising through the rankings year after year. While we are continually evolving our business to adapt to changing customer requirements, the very simple strategy of the business remains exactly the same – do more for our existing customers and win new customers. I think we are succeeding because of the quality and positive attitude of the Softcat teams who are obsessed with striving to provide the highest levels of service to our customers.”
“This has been a particularly big year for us with the IPO and continued growth across all our customer segments and solutions offerings. I’d like to thank our staff for their great commitment and our customers and partners for their incredible support and encouragement during this latest stage of our development.” He added: “But we’re certainly not resting on our laurels and are acutely aware that we need to keep raising our game to stay ahead. We look forward to 2016 and to further expansion of the company including the opening of our new office in Scotland.”
