​Kiwi accreditation keeps on coming as CCL seals another Citrix first

“In such a fast paced industry it’s really important to be ahead of the game."

Computer Concepts Limited has achieved Citrix Networking for Application and Mobile security specialisation, becoming the first New Zealand partner to hold two Citrix specialisations across the country.

Citrix Specialisations form a cornerstone of the Citrix Solution Advisor (CSA) programme, designed to enable customers to quickly identify best-in-class partners who can help optimise investment in Citrix technologies.

“In such a fast paced industry it’s really important to be ahead of the game,” says Ralf Donkers, Chief Architect of End User Compute, CCL.

“Our culture has been built delivering excellence, pushing ourselves to be the absolute best that we can.

“As a team, we employ some incredibly talented engineers, and we have a culture that encourages everyone to up skill and stretch themselves to achieve their full potential.”

To achieve Citrix Specialists status, partners must complete traditional training and exams, while also proving real world capability through client validation and a challenging design and implementation exam which is designed to mirror a high pressure client environment.

“The Citrix specialisations with their real-world result requirements are an important demonstration of how we can deliver results for our clients by using the latest technologies and advancements,” Donkers adds.

“I would be lying if I said we weren’t nervous going into the practical parts of the Citrix assessment, it’s a high pressure scenario designed to weed out all but the top Citrix partners. But at CCL we value the importance of delivering real world results for clients.”

As reported by Reseller News in November 2015, CCL continues to lead the way in the local channel as Citrix partners from both sides of the Tasman continue to achieve specialist status.

Since the launch of Citrix’s new Citrix Solution Advisor (CSA) program at the beginning of 2015, nine A/NZ partners - including CCL - have achieved a combined total of 13 Citrix Specialisations.

In addition, a further seven partners in APAC achieved Citrix Specialist status and 13 in EMEA.

Having become the first Citrix Specialist partner in New Zealand, CCL leads a local channel push that is setting the global standard for Citrix’s partner program.

“It’s great that New Zealand partners are leading the way on specialisation,” adds Belinda Jurisic, Channel Sales Manager, Citrix A/NZ.

“CCL was the first Citrix partner in APAC to gain a specialisation and now the first New Zealand partner to complete two.

“For customers, working with a Citrix Specialists gives them the assurance that they are working with a partner that has demonstrated outstanding capabilities and results.”
