SCC and its specialist managed print services business M2 have won the prestigious HP Inc award ‘UK&I HP Growth Partner of the Year’ at HP’s largest global partner forum, HP Reinvent.
The annual forum, hosted this year in Chicago, brought together more than 1,400 leading HP Partners from across the globe along with HP’s CEO Dion Weisler and his entire executive channel team.
The winning partners are evaluated across a variety of criteria including innovation, category leadership across print, PC and supplier, distributor and re-seller categories. Globally more than 50 partners were honored.
Pierre Jover, head of commercial and consumer channel, HP Inc. EMEA, said:
“SCC and its specialist MPS business, M2, is a shining example of why HP is so proud to be partner-first. I’m thrilled to award SCC and M2 with this prestigious honor, and look forward to continuing our partnership of innovation and growth for continued success. Congratulations!”
Will Carver, SCC’s UK alliances and partnerships director, said:
“Receiving this award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all the teams within SCC. As HP continues the digital transformation of print and personal systems, we are delighted to bring their innovative new products and solutions to our client base and the wider UK IT market.”
John Taylor, chief executive of M2 said:
“I am delighted that SCC and its specialist MPS business, M2, were confirmed as HP Partner of the Year for personal systems and MPS respectively. With combined growth well over 50%, this growth in a challenging market place illustrates the power of the HP product set as well as the hard work, focus and commitment of the people in SCC and M2 to outperform the market place.
“Customers are seeing the value of SCC and its breadth of offering including a specialist MPS business, a unique offering in the market place.”
“HP have over 118,000 partners in the world, only 50 were recognised in Chicago and only one from the UK, SCC. With SCC acquiring M2 in 2014 to deepen its proposition, MPS growth has organically exceeded 200%. When we overlay HP’s future ambition and commitment with print having acquired Samsung we are very optimistic that the future growth can exceed the historic growth trends.”
