Blue Turtle is Ivanti ITSM partner of the year in 2018 EMEA Partner of the Year Awards

Johannesburg, 12 Jul 2018

Blue Turtle Technologies, South Africa's leading enterprise technology management company, is pleased to announce it has been awarded, by vendor partner Ivanti, the award as its EMEA ITSM Partner of the Year for 2018. The awards were presented in June at a ceremony held during Ivanti Interchange18 in Madrid.

Ivanti offers customers a unified IT platform, enabling its users to effectively deploy and take advantage of full IT service management within the business. Blue Turtle has been an Ivanti partner for many years, and today boasts close to 100 customers in the southern Africa region.

"In our experience, Ivanti is the only vendor in the unified IT space that covers the length and breadth of a completely integrated solution, which is easy to deploy, integrates seamlessly into any environment and comes at a price point that makes it perfect for SME customers through to enterprise clients," states Tommy Erlank, Application and Data Business Unit Manager at Blue Turtle.

"Furthermore, the fact that the company has built its solutions on next-generation technology means that it can be deployed in the most complex of environments faster than some of the more legacy-based ITSM solutions in the market.

"Receiving this award for partners across EMEA is testimony to the skills we have on board to support and implement the Ivanti solution. It also speaks to the growth in both revenue and new sales we have managed to achieve over the last year, highlighting the popularity and success of the technology," adds Erlank.

According to Blue Turtle, Ivanti has also recently announced an expanded portfolio and a host of new tools it is adding to its solution offering, all of which the company will soon be taking to customers in the local market.

The Ivanti Partner Program, which was enhanced earlier this year with expanded enablement resources for diverse partner types, features programmes for managed service providers (MSPs), expert solution providers (ESPs) and consultancy partners, alliance partners and distribution partners.

"Ivanti is pleased to honour the success and passion of its partners as they deliver on our vision to break down IT silos and unify IT through increased visibility and automated processes," said James Anderson, Area Vice-President, EMEA Channel, Ivanti. "Our Partners of the Year have made significant contributions to our business growth and provide impressive passion and expertise to our mutual customers."
