Sempre Technologies has been recognised as a leading Dell EMC partner across Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ), following a year of increased sales growth.

In taking home the Emerging Growth Partner of the Year A/NZ award, the Auckland-based provider has been recognised for demonstrating excellence across the Dell EMC portfolio, backed up by strong revenue during the past 12 months.

“This revenue growth was not due to a single sale or deal, it was due to our unremitting focus on achieving the right outcomes for our clients,” Sempre CEO Antony Bridle told Reseller News.

Specialising in data guardianship, Sempre provides a range of enterprise-grade solutions, spanning professional services, managed services and support.

From a technology perspective, the provider specialises in data storage, protection, virtualisation, security and cloud integration, backed up by strong customer service levels.

“With sharper business benefits and a clearer business case, come stronger sales,” Bridle added. “And that applies to all our technology partners, including Dell EMC.

“Since we launched in 2015, we’ve remained focused on achieving the right results for clients irrespective of their technology mix.”

During 2017, Bridle said Sempre has increased sales across the company’s entire customer base, leveraging technology partnerships with Dell EMC, VMware, Cisco and IBM, alongside Pure Storage and Amazon Web Services.

“Our focus on customer value expanded our role with existing customers, and it also delivered significant new business wins,” Bridle added.

“In 2018, we’ll expand both our sales executive team and our consulting team, and we’re poised to bring a range of exciting and innovative new products to market from a range of vendors.”

Spanning a range of sectors, Sempre’s customer base consists of NZME, Sky, Fisher & Paykel and Toyota, as well as The University of Waikato, University of Otago and Victoria University Wellington.

“Sempre has delivered outstanding results, overachieving in all areas of business performance, as well as increasing the volume of incremental business throughout 2017,” Dell EMC general manager of channel A/NZ Geoff Wright added.

“This award is a testament to the efforts of the entire team and their dedication to delivering value for customers. Our partners play a key role in the success of the Dell EMC business and the Partner Awards provide an opportunity for us to recognise and celebrate their contribution and achievements over the year.

"We enjoy a strong relationship with Sempre, and are thrilled to be able to reward the tremendous growth they have accomplished this year.”
