We take quality and expertise in technology very seriously. As a consequence, we are happy to be associated with a number of mainstream and specialist business partners, who enable us to better serve our own clients. Some of these allow us to provide additional services, in other cases we are required to send our staff to specialist training, to qualify them as experts on partners’ products.
Here’s a little bit about our relationships with some of our partners:
Sophos: We are Gold Channel Partners, meaning our staff have extensive training on Sophos security technologies, both hardware and software, endpoint and perimeter safeguards. We are also Cyberoam Gold partners, and experts in integrating Cyberoam and Sophos technologies for seamless protection.
Cisco: we are Select Certified Partners. The scheme requires us to have staff expertly trained in a range of Cisco network products. We believe Cisco is justifiably the market leader in its field, and are proud that this association enables us to deliver robust, efficient and highly secure intranet and extranet infrastructure.
Dell: we are Registered Partners, enabling us to obtain keen pricing and additional technical information and support on Dell products. We specialise in Dell server technology and desktop machines.
Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE): We have decades of experience in supplying, configuring and maintaining HP Enterprise products, including HP-Aruba wireless networking equipment.
Microsoft: we are part of the Microsoft Partner Network. This is recognition that our staff are formally trained in Microsoft’s products and technology. We also create and maintain software for our clients using Microsoft developer environments (.net framework, C# Visual Basic, SQL Server, etc.). In the past we were proud to be the only Microsoft Gold Certified reseller in the city, however that scheme has been discontinued by Microsoft.
Veeam: Our Silver Pro Partnership with Veeam complements our expertise in VMware virtualization. Veeam produce the technology- and industry-leading data protection product for backing-up and protecting data held on virtual machines. This vital function is often overlooked, placing an otherwise effective system at risk. We take data protection very seriously, and have no hesitation in recommending Veeam as completing the virtualizaton solution for our clients.
VMware: we are part of the VMware Partner Network. VMware is market-leading virtualization technology. In short this allows ‘virtual’ computers to operate on servers, and sometimes desktops, for purposes as diverse as software development and on-line secure Web servers. It’s geeky, but it’s vital! If you use the Internet for shopping or other secure transactions, or you log into a big system from home, it may well be VMware that’s helping protect the systems involved and keep them efficient. Again, VMware is the leading player in its market, and we are proud of our association with them.
ISO 9001:2008: OK, this isn’t really a partnership, but we’re very proud that our support services are ISO9001 certified. This is the globally recognised quality standard (originally BS 5750). It requires an independent annual audit and a commitment to a continuous improvement process. We are enthusiastic supporters of quality audit, and working on including other branches of our business too.
