The annual meeting of the Datasharp Group was attended by more that 50 Principals from The Datasharp Group. Speakers included Siemens, Nortel and Samsung, all of whom took the opportunity to stress the value of the Datasharp partnership and used the event to highlight their future roadmaps for the Group and the benefits of their portfolios.
Peter Moseley, MD of Datasharp UK, stated “This annual event is a highly important occasion for the Group and this year we have certainly enjoyed celebrating the continued success of The Datasharp Group in style! We wanted the event to be both informative and enjoyable and judging by the many principals still up in the small hours I think we have succeeded – a big thank you to all offices in the Group”
A special Award was presented to Paul McIntosh by Paul Morgan, Siemens Sales Director, VAR channel, in recognition of 20 years partnership “This has been a super event – very well organised and highly enjoyable. The Datasharp Principals are a very interesting bunch of entrepreneurs and Siemens came away with a very good feeling about the relationship we have with all at Datasharp. It was also a great pleasure to present a special Award to Paul McIntosh celebrating our 20 year relationship. Thanks to Peter and the team for the way we were looked after!”
“Datasharp’s Principals day was an excellent event” affirmed Tony Bailey, head of Nortel’s UK and Ireland channels “Our relationship with Datasharp has been very successful over these years, a true partnership which has provided leading solutions and services to our customers. Datasharp is a very strong name in the SMB market and one that is synonymous with technical quality, service and performance, playing a key role amongst SMB businesses.” Continued Bailey “Their vast product knowledge and good understanding of both the market and Nortel’s solution was rewarded at Nortel’s recent PartnerFocus event where Datasharp left with the SMB award” concluded Bailey.
Julian Barnes, UK Channel Director, Samsung Business Communications also commented, “I was really pleased to be asked to speak at the Datasharp Annual Meeting – it’s obvious The Datasharp Group are set for impressive growth. Samsung are pleased to be associated with Datasharp and believe that the combination of Datasharp skills and drive, together with our latest OfficeServ 7000 converged communications platform will make a winning combination.”
The meeting concluded with presentations to recognise excellence within the Group and among the winners were Paul and Stella Reynolds from Datasharp Wales, “We are delighted to have been awarded the 2005/6 Datasharp Customer Care Award. When we set up Datasharp Wales six years’ ago, we decided that customer care would be given the highest priority and although this has meant investing heavily in maintenance and back-up support, having so many satisfied customers has made it worthwhile. It’s great to have our commitment recognised by Datasharp UK.” Other winners included; Alan Brookes of Datasharp LCR (Top DNS Group Reseller), Michael Dixon of Datasharp Telephony Solutions (Top System Group Reseller) and Mark Nelson of Datasharp Telecom Eastern (Top Combined Sales Performance).
Moseley concluded “. This has been yet another great meeting – we’ve been able to launch some exciting new products, services and incentives to the Group and having all our Principals together has really made it superb! It’s times like these that make me realise the quality, professionalism and power we have within our Group. This is a major event in the Datasharp calendar and I’m already looking forward to the 2007 Principals meeting, as I’m sure the rest of the Group are too.”
