StorageCraft has honoured its top-performing partners for 2016 across the Australia and New Zealand region, with ASI Solutions, SMBiT Pro, Webroot, ACA Pacific and Soft Solutions New Zealand taking home the top awards.

Revealed at a glitzy bash in Sydney, the first StorageCraft Partner Awards locally saw ASI Solutions take out the Partner of the Year award, with Soft Solutions New Zealand named Distributor of the Year.

According to StorageCraft sales director, Marina Brook, the StorageCraft Partner of the Year has come a long way in transitioning its business model.

“Historically, they were seen as a very successful hardware reseller, but have since shifted to a service-oriented and complete solution specialist, due to their forward thinking and thought leadership,” Brook told ARN.

“In the past two years, through the StorageCraft MSP program, they have grown 221 per cent with a key focus on cloud services. With continued success in their business, I expect to see them drive their MSP revenue to new heights in 2017.”

Brook said Soft Solutions New Zealand was recognised for its customer service, “super-efficient order processing”, driving net new business, onboarding and educating partners on the StorageCraft managed service portfolio.

Meanwhile, Webroot was recognised with the Vendor Alliance of the Year award, while SMBiT Pro took home the Industry Group Alliance Partner of the Year award.

“StorageCraft would like to recognise Webroot for their outstanding commitment to our common partners within Australia,” Brook added.

“As a complementary technology, they have consistently aligned with StorageCraft in education, training, hosting webinars, joint roadshows and articulated clear communications in the Australia and New Zealand channel.”

In addition, Paul Miller from ACA Pacific was crowned as the StorageCraft Partner Awards' Channel Sales Evangelist.

“This award goes to an outstanding member of the StorageCraft community,” Brook added.

"This gentlemen spends countless hours selling our products and providing a holistic service and thought leadership to our customers.

"We look forward to supporting you in your efforts as we expand our products and grow the channel even further."

The awards event comes just days after former Huawei Channel Director of Enterprise Business Group, Leo Lynch, came on board to head up StorageCraft's channel operations across Australia and New Zealand.

ARN understands that the new role will see Lynch tasked with doubling StorageCraft’s partner base locally, alongside improving sales processes, coverage and partner training.

Previously, Lynch developed Huawei’s channel network in Australia, having joined the company in January 2015.
