Helsinki, Finland – 7th May 2013 – Miradore strengthens European presence with partnership with Softcat, one of the UK’s fastest growing IT software & managed services resellers.
Miradore is pleased to announce its new partnership with UK Managed Service Provider, Softcat. This partnership further extends Miradore’s European presence and underpins its global expansion program with a very strong partner in the UK.
Miradore will be powering Softcat’s web-based lifecycle management ITSM solution, enabling IT teams to track and manage multiple hardware & software assets and licenses in real time. It provides them with a simple dashboard and real-time information about a range of assets including PCs, laptops, smart phones, tablets and retail point-of-sale terminals. While many businesses make extensive use of smart phones and tablets, few successfully track and effectively manage these mobile devices. Softcat’s ITSM Solutions, powered by Miradore, addresses this growing requirement by providing capabilities to enforce security policy settings and remotely lock, reset or wipe a managed device, solving customers BYOD management issues and giving peace of mind.
Kristian Järnefelt, Miradore’s chief executive, said, “As one of Europe’s fastest growing and talented managed services providers, Softcat is an ideal partner to work with to further develop Miradore’s global presence. Miradore’s unique IT device lifecycle and configuration management tool for managed services providers, linked with Softcat’s leading ITSM service offering and its people’s energy and commitment to be the best in their field, makes for a superb foundation to build a long and beneficial relationship. We are very excited about what the future will bring.”
Softcat’s Managed Services Director, Simon Walker said, “As Softcat’s continued goal is to build a managed service offering that is second to none, there are very high standards partners must reach in quality, reliability, robustness and security, all linked with a solid commitment to innovation and product development. Therefore, after a rigorous selection process, we are pleased that Miradore is now Softcat’s partner of choice to assist in delivering desktop, mobile and smart device lifecycle and configuration management services as part of Cloud Softcat’s IT Service Management offering. We are very excited with the enhanced service offering that Miradore brings, along with the opportunity for Softcat to demonstrate further innovation in managed service delivery.”
Colin Brown, Softcat’s managing director, is delighted about the new partnership. “Customer service is Softcat’s passion and the partnership with Miradore further enhances our managed services capability through our Cloud Softcat ITSM offering, thus enabling us to deliver enhanced customer service.”
Softcat ITSM Solutions, powered by Miradore, are available from Softcat now.
