SCC has become one of a handful of UK companies to be awarded prestigious Platinum partner status by virtualisation giants Citrix.
With a long-established track record for delivering expert solutions based around the Citrix offering, Europe’s largest independent IT group was awarded the highest accreditation given by the global software vendor at an event last month. As a Platinum Solution Advisor, SCC is qualified to work with customers delivering the company’s entire technology range – from initial consultancy through to the detailed design and implementation phases – to deliver tailored solutions to meet individual business needs and deliver measurable return on investment.
“SCC view the virtual desktop as an exciting place to be in the marketplace and it represents a growing and important aspect of our business. Earning Platinum Partner accreditation is a major step forward, offering an exciting opportunity for our customers to change the way they work and enhance their virtual experience” said Andy Wright, Director of Vendor Alliances at SCC.
“This announcement fits in with our strategy of ensuring we always have the highest possible accreditation status with all our vendors and means that we will now enjoy an even closer working relationship with Citrix’s technical and sales staff locally and in Europe.”
Platinum accreditation is an invitation-only award for partners who demonstrate the highest level of expertise and commitment to the entire Citrix portfolio of products as a core part of their business. Recipients must have a well established Citrix practice and extensive experience of working closely with Citrix on sales, implementation and consulting engagements.
SCC, which employs Citrix technology at the core of many of its virtualisation and Cloud solutions, believes that the announcement emphasises the strong working relationship built up between the two companies.
Wright added: “In many ways this is business as usual. Our staff have proved their technical and sales expertise along with their capability on a day-to-day basis and we will continue to give customers the best possible advice on how to achieve business agility, commercial advantage and cost savings by using Citrix software.”
Kevin Bland, Director, Channel, UK, Ireland & South Africa, Citrix said: “SCC has proven to be a valued and extremely capable Citrix partner. It’s continued commitment to Citrix mobile workstyles and cloud services solutions means that we are delighted to award platinum solution advisor status. We very much hope that SCC will continue to be an important part of our partner-ecosystem.”
