The organisers of the award, Technoplanet is an international channel marketing and communications company specialising in the technology sector. Since 1993, their mission has been to develop best-practice channel solutions that help technology manufacturers develop and manage their channel partners.
For Technoplanet, these awards provide an opportunity for companies to celebrate their skills and their company culture, reinforcing their credibility when it comes to their ability to provide the right technology for their clients.
The award was open to Managed Service Providers (MSPs), Value-Added Resellers (VARs), and Internet Telephony Service Providers (ITSPs). To be eligible for entry, companies had to demonstrate profitability over the preceding three years. Participants were required to fill out an in-depth questionnaire containing two hundred questions designed to test their systems, showcase their strengths and highlight areas that may benefit from improvement. The survey covered twelve areas and companies were required to demonstrate their best practices within each category. Eight judges from a variety of backgrounds then reviewed and audited each application, awarding scores against a predetermined set of criteria. The fifty companies with the highest scores were then named as one of Britain’s Top 50 Best Managed IT Companies.
The award ceremony was held at the Institute of Directors in London and, owing to CEO Francis West’s departure for South Africa, Key Shareholder, Graeme Ison was on hand to accept the award on Westtek Solutions behalf.
It was gratifying to receive recognition for Best Practice, particularly in such a competitive and populated sector. Right from its inception, Westtek’s mission has been to provide effective, no-nonsense IT solutions that have tangible money and time saving benefits and our customers assure us that’s precisely what we do. With IT Managed Solutions being such a complex area, this award really helps demonstrate to prospective clients that we have their best interests at heart. – Graeme Ison, Key Shareholder, Westtek Solutions Ltd.
Commenting from his family Christmas holiday in South Africa, Francis West said:
It’s amazing to win an award that recognises not only how much we value our customers, but also how much we value our team. Without our team, we simply couldn’t be as effective for our clients. I know our services are integral to the productivity, success and smooth operation of our clients’ business and our team is the same for us! We don’t do what we do to win awards – but, all the same, it’s still fantastic to win an award like this!
