Wexford, 23 March 2017 – Datapac, Ireland’s leading technology solutions and services provider, today announced that it has been awarded HP Inc. Partner of the Year for UK and Ireland.
The HP Partner Awards recognise and celebrate outstanding performance and accomplishments that raise the standard for business excellence, innovation, growth and customer satisfaction.
Datapac became HP’s first Irish partner to scoop this award. It significantly grew revenues, new customer acquisitions and market share across all of the sectors in which it partners with HP, including printer, PC and laptop sales.
Datapac was also recognised for its in-depth knowledge of the HP product suite and achieving the highest level of training, standards and certification. As Ireland’s only multi-accredited HP Platinum Partner, Datapac provides unmatched access, insights and expertise into HP’s product roadmap and its growing solutions portfolio.
This award for Datapac follows a highly successful year across its wider business as it achieved strong growth in a number of areas including print, security, business continuity and managed services. Datapac’s latest and most high profile partner award win follows other recent notable successes with HP, including being named as HP’s UK and Ireland Print Partner of the Year in 2014.
Patrick Kickham, director, Datapac, said, “This award caps a phenomenal year for Datapac which saw us achieve significant growth in a number of key areas in our business. To be acknowledged as HP’s partner of the year for UK and Ireland is a fantastic endorsement of our capabilities, focus and results.
