Eurodata shine at the European IT Excellence Awards 2011

Eurodata Systems named Unified Communications Solution Provider and Channel Company of the Year 2011 at the recent IT Europa European IT Excellence Awards

London, 15 February 2011 – Eurodata Systems, the UK’s leading IT services and solutions provider, today announced it received two awards at the recent European IT Excellence Awards.

The IT Europa IT Excellence Awards were founded 3 years ago in order to recognise and reward excellence in solutions provided by European IT Channels. They bring together leading ISVs, Solution Providers and Systems Integrators from all over Europe to demonstrate their ability to provide industry leading IT solutions to their customers and are fast becoming the most sought after accolades in this sector.

At an impressive awards dinner last Thursday, 10th February at the London Marriott, Grosvenor Square, the 60 finalists from 23 countries across Europe congregated to find out the winners of the various awards categories. Eurodata Systems had been nominated a finalist in two categories: Managed Services and Unified Communications Provider of the Year.

Despite the tough competition, Eurodata scooped the Unified Communications Solution Provider of the Year with its innovative and complex UC solution for the Rugby Union. Eurodata’s solution helped RFU achieve considerable savings and more effective communications throughout the organisation; £200,000 saved on phone system costs and though communication increased 10% using OCS, mobile costs were cut by 25%. Travelling expenses were also cut by 36%.

On asking why Eurodata were chosen over the 3 other finalists in this category, John Chapman, Editorial Director of IT Europa said:
“Eurodata were clear favourites because of their customer centric approach – RFU had an issue and Eurodata designed a solution that solved their problem; the results were very impressive and realised considerable cost savings for their customer. They clearly struck up a good working relationship with RFU and helped them achieve the results they were looking for. “
John went on to explain what the judges were looking for in this category: “We look for solutions where the provider has integrated a range of unified communications technologies to deliver an innovative business application. The judges were particularly looking for integration of voice, video and IM into real business processes. Eurodata, with the RFU, not only demonstrated their ability to design a workable solution but also showed their ability to listen to the customer and meet their requirements.”

Eurodata then went on to be presented with the Channel Company of the Year – probably the most notable award of the night, awarded for the entry that most impressed the panel, of 4 expert judges, across all 17 categories.

Simon Aron Managing Director of Eurodata was delighted to accept this prestigious award; he commented: “Over the years, Eurodata has been very proud to win awards in various categories reflecting our broad base of solutions. This award aggregates all of our efforts and proves without a doubt that we are an end to end solution provider and can be recognised as such. This award represents the whole company and all our skill sets.”
