Logicalis Awarded BT ‘Partner Solution Of The Year’

Integrator Logicalis has been awarded BT’s Partner Solution of the Year in recognition of strong sales performance and contracts secured during 2005/6. With annual BT sales performance up nearly 200% on 2004, to in excess of £14m in contracted business, the award demonstrates Logicalis’ continued commitment to excellence.

Tom Kelly, Managing Director of Logicalis Network Solutions, comments; “This is fantastic recognition for our account teams, whose focus and professionalism is demonstrative of the quality of service we deliver to our customers and channel, in this case BT.

By collaborating with technology partners we are able to provide enterprises with a best-of-breed IT architecture allowing them to concentrate on what they do best – look after their business.”

A significant influence on the Logicalis/BT partnership during 2005/6 was the successful tender for the Welsh Assembly Government’s ‘Life Long Learning Network for Wales’. A three year multi-million £ deal, delivered jointly by Logicalis and BT, the contract is for the provision and support of high speed broadband internet services throughout schools, libraries and ICT learning centres across Wales.

An initiative of the Welsh Assembly Government, the project will enable collaboration between institutions for learning, teaching and research, using existing and emerging networked applications.

Sean Hart, Account Director – BT, says; “Throughout 2005/6, Logicalis has consistently demonstrated its ability to secure high-profile contracts that maximise BT’s enterprise service offering. The contract with the Welsh Assembly Government is a prime example. Logicalis maintained focus, drive, and above all, listened to the customer’s needs in order to deliver an innovative IT blueprint for future services and applications.”

As part of the contract Logicalis will provide hardware, bandwidth, professional services and a bespoke extended maintenance service, which will relieve IT personnel of the ongoing management and development of the network.
