A Gateshead IT firm took on the cream of Europe in a prestigious industry competition in Spain and won, taking away a top prize for their expertise in helping clients cut operating costs.
ITPS specialises in IT consultancy, implementation, data centre provision and unified communications, as well as support services. The firm is also growing its managed services offering, a hot area in IT which sees organisations effectively outsourcing all or part of their IT function to lower costs, strengthen customer relationships and improve financial management.
Recently the company invested £750,000 in high speed connectivity and a further £750,000 in a platform which combines computing, networking and storage.
And the firm’s investments and track record impressed judges at a partner summit held in Barcelona by US software giant CA Technologies, where a series of industry awards were presented.
ITPS beat140 other resellers from across the Europe, Middle East and Africa region (EMEA) to collect the CA arcserve European Managed Services Partner of the year, a win the firm’s operations director Paul Anderson said provides a resounding endorsement of the firm’s work.
Anderson said: “This award is a real honour for our team, who are 100% committed to helping clients get maximum value from their IT investment.
“Industry endorsement from a global name like CA Technologies gives our clients confidence that they are dealing with a knowledgeable team delivering technology solutions that work for their business. A third of the European competitors in the running for the award operate only in the managed services arena so it was even more gratifying to bring the award back to the North East.”
