London, UK - 25th May 2012 - Mimecast, the leading supplier of cloud-based email archiving, continuity and security for Microsoft Exchange and Office 365, celebrated another successful year with its new and existing channel community members, and honoured outstanding partners at the 2012 Mimecast Partner Awards.
The headline award went to Softcat, which was named Premier Partner of the Year. The IT solutions supplier scooped the prestigious award after returning impressive revenue and a high number of new Mimecast customers in FY12.
"We are absolutely delighted to be named Premier Partner of the Year by Mimecast," commented Dave Simpson, Commercial Director at Softcat. "Mimecast's fantastic technology meets a clear and large market requirement. Every customer I know that has purchased the Mimecast service has been delighted with it. The support we get as a channel partner from the Mimecast team is second to none. Their clarity of thought, passion, desire, agility and ability to be flexible is a real breath of fresh air."
Less than a year after signing up with Mimecast, EACS was named Business Partner of the Year. EACS has had a fantastic year with some big name client wins and has focused its efforts on Microsoft Exchange migrations in particular.
Tikit scooped the Professional Services Partner of the Year award for the second year running, after a very strong performance in both the legal and accounting sectors.
IT Lab won the award for Technical Services Partner of the Year following great feedback from the Mimecast support team, who cited the company's excellent technical staff.
Ben Konopinski, account manager at Eurodata Systems, was crowned Mimecast Champion of the Year for always going above and beyond the call of duty to promote Mimecast both internally and externally and his tireless efforts in support of Mimecast events and campaigns.
"The Mimecast Partner Awards are an opportunity for us to show our appreciation for the fantastic work of our channel community," commented Nessa Lynchehaun, UK & Ireland Channel Director, Mimecast. "This year, the standard was higher than ever and it's great to see how the community has continued to grow and develop throughout what has been a superb year for Mimecast across the board. It was a great night for everyone at Mimecast, and I'd like to congratulate all of our winners."
