DataSolutions, the leading IT solutions distributor, today announces that it won the 2018 Distributor of the Year Award at the Irish Tech Excellence Awards in the Citywest Hotel on Thursday, 24th May.

For the past 18 years, the Tech Excellence Awards has brought together Irish technology professionals and leaders to recognise excellence in the design, implementation and support of technology solutions and services.

West Dublin-based DataSolutions earned the hotly-contested award via a poll of resellers and other professionals in the industry, who recognised the company’s ongoing commitment to the marketplace and the specialist role it plays in helping resellers enhance their businesses.

Voters acknowledged Data Solutions’ significant business achievements throughout 2017, including its continued growth and expansion in the UK market and recent €105,000 investment in marketing initiatives aimed at driving leads for its partners. 

Voters also recognised the success of Ireland’s largest annual conference dedicated to IT security, the Secure Computing Forum. Organised by DataSolutions, the 5th annual Secure Computing Forum was held in September and attended by over 300 people from a range of industries. The event was especially informative for companies seeking to prepare for GDPR.

Commenting on the award win, Michael O’Hara, managing director, Data Solutions, said: “The entire DataSolutions’ team is thrilled and humbled to have won this award for the third year in a row. The Tech Excellence Awards are widely regarded as the principal professional accolades awarded in the Irish technology sector, they are the ‘Oscars for the IT industry’, and it is a huge honour to be repeatedly acknowledged for our hard work.

 “We are exceptionally proud of our great relationships with our resellers and vendor partners and by showing their support for DataSolutions through their votes, they have made this award extra special to us.  We are committed to bringing disruptive new technologies to market quickly, to drive business transformation and give partners the best opportunity to differentiate themselves and stay ahead of the competition."
