Manchester, UK (PRWEB UK) 13 February 2014
4net Technologies have been shortlisted in the prestigious IT Europa European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2014 in three categories. The categories are Vertical Solution of the Year, Managed Service Solution of the Year and Enterprise Solution of the Year.
The IT Europa European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2014, recognise best practices in customer solutions by Systems Integrators, Solution VARs and ISVs across Europe. The winners will be announced at a Gala Awards Dinner at the Lancaster London Hotel, 26th March 2014.
These are the only pan-European awards that recognise real world solutions delivered by the IT and software channels, as well as channel support and partnerships with suppliers.
The awards are split into three sections. The first set of awards are for Systems Integrators and Solution VARs and acknowledge their skill and endeavour delivering world class IT solutions for their customers.
The Vertical Solution category recognises the way that solution providers have to understand the peculiarities of a specific market segment to design solutions that will improve the operations of their customer. In particular the judges looked at how well the solution provider understood the special characteristics of the client’s industry and how they tailored the solution to meet those requirements.
The Managed Service Solution of the Year recognises excellence, across all aspects of a managed service either on premise or cloud based. The judges were looking for how the solution meets the needs of the customer and how the service level agreements are monitored and guaranteed.
The Enterprise Solution category recognised solutions for larger organisations that transformed their operations, process or go to market strategy. In particular the judges were looking for the skill the solutions provider showed throughout the whole project from initial discussions through to completion. They wanted to understand how the solution provider engaged with their customer to understand what they wanted to achieve, what advice they gave as to what was possible, how they implemented the solution and most importantly what were the results.
Richard Pennington, Managing Director at 4net Technologies, commented: “I’m absolutely delighted with being shortlisted for these awards, which follows hot on the heels of our winning the Enterprise Hosted Solution in the recent Comms National Awards. The European IT awards are highly respected and being shortlisted is a testament to all the hard work that everyone at 4net has given to our business. It also shows that our strategy of keeping the customer at the heart of everything we do and building upon our service excellence and technical expertise is paying dividends”.
