Last week Citrix awarded Softcat the Citrix Service Provider (CSP) Partner Program Distributor Award at the Citrix Summit in Orlando, Florida, in recognition of ‘demonstrating excellence in the overall desktop as a service (DaaS) approach’. Scott Swanburg, Citrix’s senior director of service provider and cloud computing, presented Softcat’s solutions director Sam Routledge with the award.
The specifications for the Distributor Award finalists included demonstrating excellence in driving partner satisfaction, product adoption, sales knowledge, license sales and on-time reporting. Citrix found that in 2013 Softcat delivered 100% consistent on-time reporting and reporting accuracy, with a focus on driving revenue. Softcat delivered a significant number of new partners to the Citrix Service Provider program last year, and expanded the diversity of its CSP partners’ Citrix product selections.
“We’re delighted to receive this award, which demonstrates our commitment and expertise in driving growth in the Cloud and solutions for service providers. Softcat’s Partner Services team has worked exceptionally hard to get us to this point, where, after 10 years of providing this particular service to this industry, we now deal with 50% of the UK’s service provider hosting market.” said Sam Routledge, who accepted the award on behalf of Softcat.
Softcat’s commercial director Dave Simpson added: “Many thanks to Citrix for this prestigious accolade, and for an action packed Citrix Summit. Citrix is a valued partner and we continue to enjoy doing business with them. We’re looking forward to growing service provider business with them further in 2014.”
