IGEL UK Channel Partners Recognized for Thin Client Business Growth
Reading, UK. March 14, 2012 - Two IGEL channel partners have been recognized with awards from the thin client manufacturer for their outstanding business performance in 2011. OverBright was awarded "IGEL's Fastest Growing Partner of the Year" after becoming its 5th highest performing authorized partner from a standing start in January 2011.
The award for "Outstanding Business Performance" was awarded to Alchemy Group for its significant 352% growth increase in year-on-year revenues.
The awards were made at IGEL's UK Partner Conference, following a record year of growth for the thin client manufacturer, with strong organic sales of its Universal Desktop thin clients and 565% growth in license sales for its Universal Desktop Conversion software, designed to convert old PCs and thin clients into easy to manage IGEL desktops.
"We have seen a year of record growth in the UK as businesses look to cut their desktop costs and management time by implementing thin clients for server-based computing or virtual desktop environments," said Simon Richards, IGEL's UK Managing Director. "Our highly trained, expert channel partners are integral to that success."
Commenting on their award, Nathan Mills, Managing Director of Alchemy Group, said: "Alchemy's Cloud Computing philosophy and adoption of Managed Service delivery, coupled with innovative and competition beating technology from IGEL has been the cornerstone of our growth over the past year."
Kevin Goodall, Commercial Director of OverBright, added: "We set out with an independent approach to thin client technology in early 2011 but very soon realized that IGEL was the superior option in the market and so did our clients, we look forward to further growth in the coming year."
