CCL’s passion for client outcomes was rewarded this week with multiple honours in the 2017 Reseller News ICT Industry awards.  Now in their 3rd year, the awards recognise local talent across New Zealand in the IT sector.

CCL was named as the winner of two key awards.  The Mid-market Partner of the Year award which recognises a company doing a superb job of servicing customers in the 100-1000 seat market.

And the Sales Excellence award was won by Sanjeet Bal, Customer Relationship Manager based in CCL’s Wellington office.  This award is validation of Sanjeet’s passion and drive for client outcomes.

The Network Services team was highly commended for the Service Provider award and CEO, Andrew Allan was inducted into the Reseller News Hall of Fame for his contribution and support of the IT industry.

“These awards are very humbling for CCL and I am so very proud of the whole CCL team, who have provided the foundation over many years for our ongoing success.” says Darryl Swann, Founding Director of CCL. “None of this would be possible without the deep knowledge, expertise and will power our team brings to the table, every day.”

“We are delighted to have been recognised as winners at this year’s Reseller News Awards and believe this is due to the quality and breadth of the work we do, said Andrew Allan.  “These awards acknowledge the effective collaboration between our team, our clients and the right solutions.”

CCL celebrated their wins in front of almost 300 ICT industry leaders who gathered in Auckland to celebrate the 2017 Reseller News ICT Industry Awards.

To all of our clients, suppliers, staff and families – with a fabulous 2016 almost behind us we would like to thank you for your support this year.  We couldn’t do what we do without you.  This is the time of year where we reflect not just on what we have achieved, but also on those surrounding us that enabled us to achieve.  Thanks for joining us on the journey.

Our “CCL Santa Squads” around the country have been in full force this month.  Each branch has selected a charity they wanted to support and staff brought in gifts to help those in need this Christmas.  We have been very humbled by the overwhelming generosity shown by our staff.

We can’t wait to kick off the New Year, but until then, have a very Merry Christmas and a happy and safe holiday.

CCL win Champion Canterbury Awards for 2nd year in a row.

By | General News | No Comments

Computer Concepts Limited (CCL) are proud winners of the Professional Service Medium/Large Enterprise award at the Champion Canterbury Awards for the second year in a row.

Champion Canterbury Business Awards recognise and celebrate the excellence, innovation, and success of businesses and charities in the Canterbury region and are seen as some of the New Zealand’s most prestigious business awards.

“It was such a proud and humbling moment to accept the award on behalf of all the CCL team” said Darryl Swann, CCL Founder Director. “This award is really a reflection of our culture. Our whole business is built around our quality of our people and the passion they all bring to work every day. It is the AWESOME work they all do every day that won this award and has made this company great.”

“It’s our culture and the trust of our Clients that has made this award possible. We now have over 250 staff nationwide, but the passion and values we built CCL on are as strong as ever. This award is really recognition of both our team and our incredibly loyal clients.”

“It was quite an emotional win. We’ve had some amazing successes which show we are on the top of our game in the industry, including last year’s Reseller News [awards]. What makes this award so unique, apart from winning it twice, is that it is not an Industry focused award. In the Champion Canterbury Awards we are up against Accounting firms, Legal firms, IT firms, Tourism and many other different industries. The other two finalist companies we were up against was Orbit Travel and Aecom; both awesome businesses in their own right.”

“We were genuinely surprised and very humbled by the win; I didn’t even prepare a speech as we didn’t think we’d win, [winning] two years in a row has never been done before, it’s incredible to be one of the first to achieve this”.

“CCL has had a very successful year.” added Shane Heenan CCL’s Marketing Manager. “We were extremely humbled and honored to win at both the Reseller News and Champion Canterbury awards last year. “In hindsight, it would have been easy for to accept these awards as a sign of success and aim to keep on doing what we do well. However, that isn’t the passion and ambition that we bread at CCL – instead last year’s awards were seen by the team as a benchmark to beat.”

“I’m sure I speak for everyone at CCL when I say we are exceptionally proud of this achievement. “To be recognised at such prestigious awards really brings home the difference the whole team make to our customers on a daily basis”.

CCL achieves another Citrix first

By | General News | No Comments

Computer Concepts Limited (CCL) achieves Citrix Networking for Application & Mobile security specialisation, becoming the first New Zealand Citrix partner to hold two Citrix Specialisations.

Citrix Specialisations form a cornerstone of the Citrix Solution Advisor (CSA) programme, designed to enable customers to quickly identify best-in-class partners who can ensure real world results and optimise investment in Citrix technologies.

“In such a fast paced industry it’s really important to be ahead of the game. Our culture has been built delivering excellence, pushing ourselves to be the absolute best that we can.” said Ralf Donkers, Chief Architect End User Compute at CCL. “As a team, we employ some incredibly talented engineers, and we have a culture that encourages everyone to upskill and stretch themselves to achieve their full potential”, “this really shows through in achievements like this, it’s a proud moment for us to be the only New Zealand partner to hold two Citrix specialisations.”

To achieve Citrix Specialists status partners must complete traditional training and exams, while also proving real world capability through client validation and a challenging design and implementation exam which is designed to mirror a high pressure client environment.

“The Citrix specialisations with their real-world result requirements are an important demonstration of how we can deliver results for our clients by using the latest technologies and advancements.” added Donkers.

“I would be lying if I said we weren’t nervous going into the practical parts of the Citrix assessment, it’s a high pressure scenario designed to weed out all but the top Citrix partners. At CCL we value the importance of delivering real world results for clients, ‘Street-Smarts’ over “Book-Smarts” and it’s really served us well on this one”.

“It’s great that New Zealand partners are leading the way on specialisation,” added Belinda Jurisic, Channel Sales Manager, Citrix A/NZ. “CCL was the first Citrix partner in APAC to gain a specialisation and now the first New Zealand partner to complete two. For customers, working with a Citrix Specialists gives them the assurance that they are working with a partner that has demonstrated outstanding capabilities and results”.

CCL currently hold Citrix Specialisations in Virtualisation and Networking for Application & Mobile security.
