Systemax Europe Technology Group has become the first Dell reseller to bag the vendor's new Networking and Security certification in EMEA.
The firm, which is also moving up to the recently-created Preferred Partner level of the PartnerDirect programme, has successfully overcome all the challenges Dell threw at it and will receive discounted product, extyended deal registration, sales and marketing support and access to demo facilities across Dell's network and security range.
"We recognise a huge opportunity to ramp up our business by becoming true experts in Dell's solutions. Networking and security are key pain points for customers as they adopt virtualisation and move towards cloud computing," said Systemax managing director Joseph Dunne Sr.
Dell Europe executive director of channel marketing and programmes, Kathy Schnieder said training and certification remained "the cornerstones of our partners' success in selling Dell solutions around storage, servers and virtualisation."
"Systemax's achievement in becoming the first EMEA partner to achieve [this] certification is a testament to its core expertise and the significant investment it has made," she added.
