Krome Technologies join the elite list of Dells Premier Partners, the highest level of Dell’s Partner Direct program.
Dell announced their new Partner Direct structure in May 2011, which saw all top level Dell Certified partners reclassified to either Preferred or Premier Partners based on training, accreditations and revenue, with only a handful of the larger partners making it to the highest premier tier.
To achieve Premier status partners must hold specialist certifications on at least two of Dell’s four technology tracks (servers, storage, networking and security, and systems management). In addition to the accreditations, partners are also required to reach a revenue target, which is substantially higher than Preferred partners.
Following an exceptional growth period in 2011, along with further investment in Dell training; Krome, who were previously classified as a Preferred partner with Enterprise Architecture certifications, has now been confirmed as one of only 20 UK Premier Partners. Krome’s Dell specialisations are for Dell Server and Storage technologies, including the range of Dell Equallogic and Compellent solutions.
“Dell’s Premier Partner tier is reserved for a small number of partners in the UK. These are our partners that have strong Enterprise (Storage, Servers & Networking) capability and have invested significantly in our Partner Direct program. We have a strong relationship with these partners and truly believe that they extend a top class service to their customer base”, said Bill O’Shea, Dell’s UK Commercial Channel Director. “We are delighted that Krome Technologies have joined this elite group as this organisation fits the criteria perfectly and is an important strategic partner for Dell in the UK.”
By accomplishing the Premier partner status Krome will now receive an enhanced level of service and support from Dell, improved deal protection along with a higher level of discount on pricing. Working in partnership with Dell at this level allows Krome to offer its clients a superior level of service, in addition to exceptional pricing and support.
Krome’s Sales Director, Sam Mager commented, “Krome are committed to providing clients with the highest possible quality of service; when Dell announced the changes to their partner program in May, it was important to us to gain the premier status as quickly as possible. By aligning ourselves as a top level premier partner with an organization such as Dell, we are able to guarantee that our clients receive a supreme service, including comprehensive advice on the latest technology advancements, products, pricing and support.”
