Logicalis Recognised For ‘Outstanding Performance’ in Managed Services by Leading Analyst Firm, Canalys

SLOUGH, 16th October, 2012: Logicalis, the international IT solutions, managed services and cloud provider, has been named 'EMEA Channel Partner of the Year' for managed services by independent analyst firm Canalys, at its inaugural Candefero Channel Partner of the Year Awards. Designed to honour outstanding performance by EMEA channel partners, Logicalis was recognised for building a sustainable services practice that continually invests in new areas.

The awards were presented at the annual Canalys Channels Forum EMEA in Barcelona, the largest independent channel conference in the region, that recognises high performance in five specific areas - revenue growth, online sales, mobility, managed services and innovation. From the large number of nominations received by the panel of analysts, Logicalis were selected as winners of the managed services category, following an in-depth evaluation into its sustainable investments for the future, business performance, demonstrated expertise and the resulting business value generated for its customers.

Tom Kelly, Managing Director of Logicalis UK, commented, "This is a great accolade for Logicalis and vindicates the significant investment we've made in developing our Data Centre, Cloud and Managed Services offerings for the mid market. Furthermore, it bares testimony to our vision, innovation and unrelenting commitment in supporting our customers' IT strategies, enabling them to meet their business objectives today, tomorrow and into the future."

Steve Brazier, Canalys President and CEO said, "We were thrilled to be able to announce the winners at the Forum, and to present each of them with their award on stage in front of their peers and the vendors with whom they work so closely. EMEA's channel community plays a critical role in driving success, for their customers as well as for the vendors whose products and services they carry. They are crucial to helping businesses serve their customers, connect with partners and empower their employees by creating technology solutions that keep pace with the changing business environment."
