Comztek named Symantec Distributor of the Year

At a recent annual Symantec channel awards event, technology distributor Comztek was honoured with the Symantec Distribution Partner of the Year 2010 and the Norton Consumer Distribution awards. Neal Botje, Symantec business development manager at Comztek, also received a special mention for dedication and commitment to the Symantec brand.

“I would like to think the awards and the special mention were the result of additional focus and improved strategies,” says Neal Botje. “The systems improvements include a user-friendly, filter-based quoting tool for our sales force, and readily available media- and solution-based scoping templates, ensuring the reseller and end-user are quoted quickly and correctly first time.

“In addition, we have bolstered our Symantec team. We now have a dedicated enterprise channel manager, a volume channel manager, a business development manager focused on small business, renewals desk and pre-sales engineer. This allows us to add value to our resellers by providing pre-sales services to the channel at no cost. We have also invested heavily in promoting the brand.”

“We are raising the bar for the year ahead, and this award has definitely bolstered our enthusiasm and commitment to the market leading brand in security and storage software!”

Says Lara Kotze, Symantec South Africa distribution account manager: “The Symantec team would like to once again congratulate Comztek on the award for distributor of the year for 2010. The team definitely deserves it and has shown their commitment to Symantec over the year. We look forward to another great year ahead.”
