Mindware wins ‘Symantec Total Solutions Distributor 2008’ award
Mindware, a leading IT distributor in the Middle East, announced that it has won the ‘Total Solutions Distributor 2008’ award, during the recently concluded ‘Symantec Middle East Partner Summit’. The award recognised the company’s outstanding regional distribution strategy and wide-ranging value added distribution (VAD) services. In addition, the company also received three major awards at the event, including ‘Individual Performance FY08- SMB Solutions’, ‘Individual Performance FY08 - Availability Sales’, and ‘Individual Performance FY08 – Total Solutions -KSA Sales’. Mindware CEO Jacques Chammas accepted the award on behalf of the Mindware-Symantec team, whose dedication has largely contributed to the products’ growth in the last six years.
The key factors behind Mindware’s win were its result-driven and value added distribution strategy, and a dedicated team of professionals. The distributor was also distinguished for its wide network of channel partners, with whom Mindware consistently co-invests in efforts to scale up and build their expertise in focused areas. In addition to conducting products knowledge transfer sessions, the award-winning distributor also supports its partners across all their pre-sales activities, which helps them to cross-sell and up-sell within the Symantec portfolio.
“This award is a testament to our expertise and widespread partner network, which has made us a valuable partner for Symantec. In the coming years, we can expect further growth in security and availability requirements in the region to support the intensifying need for data protection and information theft risk. Our role in bringing these industry-leading technologies closer and more accessible to regional clients has brought us to our current leading position, which we seek to leverage to reach our 20 per cent target growth for 2008,” concluded Shadi Tahan, Symantec Product Manager, Mindware.
