Partner Overview – Dell

Based in Texas, United States, Dell is one of the largest technology solutions and manufacturing companies in the world and a leading innovator since its foundation in 1984, by Michael Dell. After only 10 years in business, Dell became one of the top five computer manufacturers globally and since then has become one of the most recognised names in the industry, emphasising its commitment to the development of ground-breaking technologies for all of its customers.

Why Softcat for Dell?

Softcat has partnered with Dell since the inception of it’s Partner Direct programme. The partnership has grown from strength to strength, culminating in Softcat’s recognition as one of only five Dell Partners in the UK to have earned the highly sought-after status of Premier Plus Partner. Our contribution to the Dell partner ecosystem was further acknowledged in 2014, when we were awarded UK Dell Partner of the Year and EMEA Partner of the Year. We are one of only a handful of partners to have achieved competency in every Dell product category, in part the result of the extensive dedicated resources we have aligned to Dell technology.

Softcat have continually grown not only their entire Dell Business but also their relationship with Dell significantly over the past 12 months. The Softcat team have done a really great job in assimilating Dells end to end solutions approach and become experts across all the core Dell competencies. The team have energy, passion and a winning culture that sits really well with Dell. Dell’s relationship with Softcat is one of Strategy and partnership between our two organisations. I look forward to our continued journey together and growing our mutual business over the 12 months.

Datacentre

Datacentre

Dell has infused the same innovation and value so fundamental to its early success in client computing into their enterprise technologies and is now a recognised leader in server and storage.

We combine this product excellence with our own expert in-house technical resource to enable our customers to make informed decisions and arrive at solutions they can depend on. Softcat continues to be recognised in this arena and in 2015 we became Dell's largest storage partner in the UK.

Our knowledge in Dell's datacentre technologies is also helping us to create exciting new solutions that tie on-premise infrastructure with the cloud, offering unique 'cloud-in-a-box' solutions that present the chance to seamlessly burst into off-premise capacity using Microsoft Azure.
