Softcat is well-established in the Cisco channel and is one of the UK's fastest growing Cisco partners.
Douglas Fawell, operations director of Softcat, accepted the award at the global awards reception as the second day of the four-day summit drew to a close. "It is a great honour to win this award in recognition of what we have achieved," he said. "We have come a very long way as a business. There was a time that people knew us only as a provider of software licensing, but today our offering is far-reaching and comprehensive: we are a trusted partner for world-class hardware companies like Cisco."

The team at Softcat adds tremendous value to what we offer - they are the natural choice for this year's Cisco Commercial Partner of the Year for UK and Ireland."
