IT specialist, Blue Chip, has been shortlisted in the Services Provider of the Year category for this year’s prestigious CRN (Computer Reseller News) Award, which recognises ‘the ingenuity and exceptional achievements of the UK channel industry.’
Blue Chip's Managing Director, Richard Cook, said: “Being shortlisted by the channel’s leading awards is a great achievement because it recognises how we have developed and evolved our customer-centric services portfolio way beyond the industry norm. By developing our services alongside our customers, we have made elements such as 24/7 monitoring and support a standard offering for all customers rather than an optional extra which in itself is an industry first.
“Moreover, we have evolved a Customer Excellence Programme with the aim of developing customer relationships and measuring our performance against expectation and delivery. Bringing these elements of enterprise IT to small and medium sized business underpins our entire strategy, exceeds industry standards and as a result we believe we are very strong contenders in this category.”
Blue Chip was shortlisted by a panel of twelve judges against new and refined criteria this year. In the next stage, Blue Chip’s entry will be assessed alongside five others by a category-specific panel of judges from across the industry.
Now in their 19th year, the CRN Awards are widely respected within the industry, representing ‘the pinnacle of achievement in the UK market, rewarding outstanding performance in the IT channel’.They will bring together 1,750 leading industry players for the Awards dinner, which will take place at Battersea Park Events Arena.
