Egress Names Softcat a ‘Top Performer’

Success group award team

Egress has announced that Softcat Ltd has been named their ‘Top Performing Partner’ for 2014. The title recognises the significant sales growth in Egress Switch encryption services made by the Value Added Reseller (VAR).

Egress UK Sales Manager Kelly McCann explains: “We are pleased to be able to acknowledge the commitment and investment made by Softcat in the Egress Switch encryption platform throughout 2014 by awarding them Top Performing Partner. Working closely with the Egress team, Softcat has been able to drive substantial business through their local and central government teams, as well as considerable growth across their corporate team with wins in banking, insurance and the gaming industry. This effort is reflected in their exceptional year on year Switch revenue growth of over 100% in 2014.

“Softcat’s success is a reflection of the importance of Egress’ Channel Partner Programme and demonstrates the value of our continued investment in this area, as most recently announced in November. As a result, we also experienced significant revenue growth by other VARS in 2014, including NTS (part of Capita plc) building on their award from 2013.

“Looking ahead, 2015 represents another exciting year for Egress as we continue to expand our customer footprint across UK Government, government supply chain, private healthcare, financial and professional services. Without the support of our VARs, this growth will not be possible.”

Jamie Burke, Sales Director at Softcat states: “We are delighted to be named Egress’ ‘Top Performing Partner’ for 2014. As one of the fastest growing IT providers in the UK, we have built our success on a portfolio of innovative, industry-leading technologies. By investing in a best-of breed-software and service approach, we are able to offer our customers solutions that deliver genuine value and end-user results. The growth of our Switch business demonstrates the success of this approach.

“What excites us for 2015 is not only the continued progress in traditionally strong markets that include UK Government, but also the number of opportunities being identified by our corporate teams. Data security and encryption will be high up on the decision-making agenda for most organisations in 2015, so we feel uniquely placed to take advantage of this opportunity and look forward to another fruitful year working closely with the Egress team.”
