Hewlett-Packard awards 2014 UK and Ireland Print Partner of The Year to Datapac
Dublin, 3rd December, 2014 – Datapac, Ireland’s largest indigenous ICT solutions and services provider has been awarded HP UK and Ireland Print Partner of the Year 2014 by Hewlett-Packard at its annual partner conference in London.
This marks the first time an Irish company has received this high profile award. The award is open to all HP Print Partners throughout Ireland and the UK. Datapac was awarded the title as it achieved significant customer and revenue growth for HP Print. In announcing the award, HP’s Damian Cusick, Channel Sales Director UK&I, highlighted Datapac’s contribution through its focus on key growth technologies.
Datapac designs, installs and manages print and document solutions for leading organisations throughout the island of Ireland. It has been providing image and print solutions to organisations in Ireland for more than thirty years.
Patrick Kickham, director of Datapac, said, “We are delighted to win this prestigious award from HP. To be the first partner from Ireland to win this award is not only a great achievement for Datapac but it also signifies the buoyancy in the print market in Ireland. I’m very proud of the achievements of our team and to have our competencies and skills highlighted in front of such a huge audience in London was fantastic for everybody in Datapac.”
Gary Tierney, UK&I Printing Category Director said, “We are very pleased that an Irish partner has won the award for best UK and Ireland Print Partner. Datapac fully deserved this award due to their continued growth and focus on key new HP technology like our X series printers. We’re looking forward to further growth with Datapac as we plan some very exciting new services and initiatives for the Irish market together”.
"At Barretstown, we rebuild the lives of children, and their families, affected by childhood cancer and other serious illnesses. We serve 5,000 campers a year and have 1200 volunteers each year. Communication is crucially important and Datapac has helped us to streamline, improve and ensure efficiency."
"Datapac has provided us with a fantastic product and world-class levels of service and support. Whenever people ask me about our experience with Datapac I’m always ready to sing their praises and I would happily recommend their services to any organisation."
"For many years Datapac has been our sole supplier for the maintenance of Personal Computers and Peripherals in Ireland. Through their Service Centres in Wexford and Dublin, Datapac provides excellent support to our businesses throughout the country and consistently meets the SLA targets which we have set. The skill, expertise and experience of their engineers and other technical support personnel are of the highest standard."
“The value of dealing with an HP Gold partner in this process can’t be underestimated. Datapac provide us with a local touch and can cover the full range of our IT requirements, but when there is a specific technical requirement like this, they can bring the specialist technical resources of HP to the table. HP and Datapac had a thorough discussion with us around our requirement - and had really done their homework - and then were able to provide us with a very highly specified test platform for us to prove the application on before we committed to purchase.”
Datapac understands our needs and requirements and has the expertise and experience to follow through on all our requests. Our constant need to reduce costs has been assisted by Datapac's ability to suggest alternative solutions and methods whilst improving both efficiency and productivity. Our partnership with Datapac is akin to having an IT department on site that we simply could not provide ourselves.
