A CRAMLINGTON-based IT firm saw off competition from some of the biggest names in its field to win a top national award.
SITS Group beat the likes of global computer giant Dell to win the Small Business Partner of the UK award.
VMware, Inc, an American firm that provides cloud and virtualisation software and services, shortlisted 30 out of its 3,000 corporate UK partners to compete for the awards at the fourth annual VMware Partner Recognition Dinner held at The Mayfair Hotel, London.
SITS Group, based at Berrymoor Court, Northumberland Business Park, was formed in 2008 and specialises in all areas of cloud computing, including virtual desktop and server consolidation, cloud management and disaster recovery solutions.
Commercial director Phil Cambers said: “This award was recognition not just of our commitment to VMware but of our creativity and skill in using its systems.
“VMware is one of the biggest software providers in the world and winning puts us in the top one per cent of its UK partners, which is a marvellous achievement.”
