Azlan, the enterprise division of Computer 2000, has been presented with worldwide Award for Excellence by Cisco in recognition of its outstanding work in the Cisco Collaboration space. The award was presented to Colin McGregor, Azlan Director UK and Ireland, at the recent Cisco Partner Summit in San Diego. It was one of only eight worldwide awards to be presented to distributors by Cisco.
McGregor said: “This award recognises the outstanding knowledge, expertise and differentiation that the team delivers to our customers and into Cisco. By providing focused engagement and resources around Cisco Collaboration solutions, Azlan is enabling resellers to develop their knowledge and capabilities and drive new business in this key growth segment of the market. This award marks out Azlan UK as the thought-leader in value distribution and I’d like to extend my sincere thanks to everyone that has contributed to this amazing achievement. It is their efforts that make a difference for our customers.
Mark Wheeler, Azlan Cisco Business Unit Director, stated: “Collaboration is one of Cisco’s priorities so this is a highly significant award for Azlan. We’ve worked extremely hard to provide resellers with the resources, services and support they need to develop their understanding and take Cisco Collaboration solutions to market. We’ll continue to do that with a view to driving further growth for our partners, for Cisco, and for our own business.”
Azlan has been setting the pace in Cisco Collaboration with a series of initiatives that enable Cisco partners to take the vendor’s leading Unified Communications, Collaboration, and TelePresence solutions to market. It has also worked to support former TANDBERG resellers and ensuring they were able to integrate and align their businesses with the Cisco Partner Program.
The UK operation plans to share its best-practice in Cisco Collaboration with other Azlan operations throughout Europe.
