Computacenter Honoured with Global Awards for ‘EMEAR Partner of the Year’ and ‘Enterprise Partner of the Year’ at Cisco Partner Summit 2021
Computacenter today announced that it has received two Cisco® Partner Summit Global awards, recognised as ‘EMEAR Partner of the Year’ and ‘Enterprise Partner of the Year’. Cisco announced the winners during its annual partner conference, this year held digitally.
Awarded to channel partners who rise to business challenges, the Cisco Partner Summit Global awards are designed to recognise superior business practices and reward best-in-class methodologies. Areas of consideration include innovative processes, architecture-led successes, strategic business outcome-focused programs, seizing new opportunities, and sales approaches.
It gives me great pleasure to recognize Cisco partners who continue to demonstrate superior performance and drive value for our customers. They are leading and innovating with us to help enterprises solve complex problems,’ said Oliver Tuszik, Senior Vice President, Global Partner Organisation, Cisco. ‘It’s a privilege to present the EMEAR Partner of the Year and Enterprise Partner of the Year Global awards to Computacenter in recognition of its outstanding achievement in helping customers respond to their business challenges.’
Kevin James, Computacenter Group Chief Commercial Officer, said ‘We are delighted that Cisco have recognised our outstanding performance, customer success and innovation. We have won more Global awards than ever before, and this is a testament to the dedication of our teams globally and our close alignment and engagement with Cisco. These awards will boost our partnership and our performance for 2022 and beyond’.
Cisco Partner Summit Global awards reflect the top-performing partners within specific technology markets across all geographical regions. All award recipients are selected by a group of Cisco Global Partner organisation and regional executives. In addition to the two Global Awards, Computacenter UK were awarded Enterprise Partner of the Year, UK and Ireland Partner of the Year and Security Partner of the Year. We also won four EMEAR Awards for ‘Enterprise Partner of the Year’, ‘Security Partner of the Year’, ‘Cisco Capital Partner of the Year’, and the overall ‘EMEAR Geo Partner of the Year’.
Computacenter signs new Cisco Global Partnership Agreement
Earlier this year Computacenter were pleased to announce that they had signed a new ‘Global Systems Integrator Agreement’ (GSIA) with Cisco. We are proud of our partnership with Cisco and of our global capabilities, which this recognises. The GSIA gives us a new global commercial framework to optimise how our customers procure Cisco products and services.
Many of Computacenter’s multinational customers have very large and complex Cisco networking and cybersecurity infrastructures which span countries, businesses and contracts. We help them to simplify how they source, manage and deploy technology to reduce cost and provide better services to their users. The GSIA, effective across Computacenter’s global footprint, means that we can now provide Cisco hardware, software and services directly from the manufacturer to our customers worldwide. This will reduce cost and complexity, providing better transparency and accountability for the services we provide.
Computacenter is a leading independent technology partner trusted by large corporate and public sector organisations. We help our customers source, transform and manage their IT infrastructure to deliver digital transformation, enabling users and their business.
