July 12, 2012 | Quarterly Newsletter
Westcon Group is a value-added distributor of category-leading unified communications, network infrastructure, data center and security solutions. Since inception in 1985, Westcon has built a global network of specialty resellers and clients; with presence in 40 countries, across 6 continents.
Westcon Brazil has been a ColoHouse client since early 2011. Like many organizations, Westcon utilizes data center infrastructure for redundancy and enhanced connectivity to and from Latin America.
Recently, Westcon Brazil significantly expanded their hosting space within the ColoHouse facility. Completed last month, the new cage space is home to “Westcon Academy”, a training and certification environment for Westcon customers and reseller partners.
Mauricio Peclat Lopes da Silva, Westcon Education Director for LATAM states, “Collocating within ColoHouse provides Westcon a central, improved point of connectivity to the Latin American region. ColoHouse also provides redundancy for Westcon, facilitating consistent access to programs for employees, customers and reseller partners.”
Westcon emphasizes strong relationships at every level of their organization, enabling clients to receive specialized knowledge and support, tailored to their needs. Westcon Academy facilitates this vision by enabling business partners to further their technical and sales knowledge.
Westcon hosts classes for product sets stemming from companies such as Aruba, Avaya, Blue Coat, Check Point and Fortinet. Training topics offered focus on product launches, sales force and channel enablement, including solution and executive selling, certification and associate skills development.
Felipe Rodriguez, ColoHouse Chief Operating Officer states, “On behalf of the entire ColoHouse team, I’d like to recognize Westcon’s ongoing dedication and support to their client base, we are pleased to provide an environment that fosters Westcon’s organizational goals and commitment to their business partners.”
