Logicalis announced today it will receive two Geographical Awards at the Cisco Partner Summit 2006, being held in San Diego, California. The awards recognise Logicalis as Gold Partner of the Year, and as Services Partner of the Year, highlighting excellent performance over the last year in the United Kingdom.
The Gold Partner of the Year Award was awarded to Logicalis for consistently leading the way in providing customers and partners with innovative, market leading services, solutions and applications, whilst gaining expertise in three Cisco Systems specialisations and achieving a consistent high level of customer satisfaction. Logicalis received this accolade for exceeding the requirements of the partner program in all aspects and demonstrating exceptional commitment to delivering Cisco Systems’ technologies.
The Services Partner of the Year Awards was awarded to Logicalis because it went further than any other partner to integrate Cisco’s services portfolio into its overall proposition. Logicalis has consistently provided its customers and partners with innovative, market leading services, solutions and applications to become a trusted business advisor to its clients. Logicalis was chosen for attaining the highest levels of customer satisfaction through the use of specialised services to support new technology deployments.
Tom Kelly, Managing Director, Logicalis Network Solutions (LNS) commented, “Pride in Logicalis’ recognition, by Cisco Systems, as Gold Partner of the Year and Services Partner of the Year extends throughout the dedicated team of people who have delivered the excellence acknowledged by these two awards.”
Discussing their significance, Kelly added, “When taken individually these awards demonstrate the commitment that Logicalis has made to their respective Cisco Systems customers. Embracing advanced technology solutions is a Logicalis strength, as is our continual commitment to delivering innovation and business value to the customers adopting them. This marks us out as a leader and trusted partner in the UK and Ireland market.
