Galdon Data the first recipient of a new award given by Kathea
Galdon Data, part of First Technology Holdings, today announced that it has received the Emerging Partner Award for 2014 from Kathea Communications Solutions.
"Being the first recipient of this award from Kathea is to us a fitting culmination for the commitment and effort that we have expended over the past couple of years since we became an integration partner of Kathea for the provision of Polycom-based solutions," commented Fairoz Jaffer, Director of Galdon Data.
"As a complete communications solutions provider, the provision of video conferencing capabilities is a key part of our total portfolio. The relationship with Kathea, the local distributor for Polycom, is fundamental as their products provide functionality, such as automated facial tracking capabilities, that we have not seen elsewhere and which is often an important requirement for users seeking these types of interactive solutions that provides a personal experience."
"It was with great pleasure that we made this award to Galdon Data, a Gold partner of ours, as they have built up a reputation as an outstanding Unified Communications (UC) Integrator in the South African market and achieved phenomenal growth in such areas as voice and video over the last twelve months," explained Richard Henn, CEO of Kathea Communications Solutions.
"This not only shows their commitment to positioning these solutions to the market, but also how corporates have seen an ever increasing need for UC and have endorsed the integrated solutions offered by Galdon Data. They truly believe in the UC 'story'. In addition, we have also built and grown a great relationship with them in both Cape Town and Johannesburg and believe that this strong partnership will not only help grow the market but our businesses as well and look forward to being part of this strategic initiative going forward."
"We are delighted that our relationship with Kathea (and Polycom) is blossoming as this bodes well for all of us going forward," concluded Jaffer. "Polycom has a strong relationship and works closely with Microsoft internationally and therefore complements the strong partnership we also enjoy with the latter in the local environment. Galdon Data is also a Gold Microsoft Communications partner."
