A CLONDALKIN-based IT distributor has claimed the 2017 Distributor of the Year Award at the Irish Tech Excellence awards held at Citywest Hotel.
Data Solutions claimed the top title in recognition of its business performance and customer service, with the award going to the company following a poll of resellers and other industry figures.
The award win marked the third win out of four years for the company at what was the 17th annual outing for the awards.
Driving Data Solutions’ success on the night were its business achievements throughout 2016, in addition to its €5 million investment and expansion into the UK market.
The company has also signed a number of partnerships with leading vendors in the UK, including Nutanix and Cohesity, and is looking to replicate its success in Ireland in the competitive UK market.
The company’s annual IT security event, The Secure Computing Forum, also factored into its win, with peers praising the initiative.
The Secure Computing Forum is Ireland’s largest annual conference dedicated to IT security, with last year’s event attended by more than 400 people from a range of industries.
Michael O’Hara, managing director, Data Solutions, said: “The Tech Excellence Awards is Ireland’s pre-eminent technology awards programme. We are humbled to receive this award for three of the last four years.
“The Data Solutions’ team is absolutely chuffed as it is a real endorsement of the service we provide from those who know it best – our reseller customers, and partners.
“We are exceptionally proud of our great relationships with our resellers and vendor partners, and this award highlights our ongoing commitment to both our customers and the market.”
