The Cabling & Infrastructure department of Simac ICT Belgium was recently reconfirmed by Schneider Electric as an 'Elite Partner'. This is the highest level of certification within Schneider Electric's partner program. At the same time, Simac was appointed 'Service Partner'. In this way, Simac and Schneider Electric reach the next level in their existing long-term relationship.
Strict requirements for Elite Partners
"We really see Elite Partners as an extension of our own organization," says Thomas Van Tricht, Partner Account Manager at Schneider Electric. "Companies reach Elite Partner status only after having acquired both expertise and experience in our knowledge domains, while being capable to sell and deliver large projects autonomously".
Energy management and automation
Schneider Electric is a world-class player in energy management and automation. Simac ICT Belgium has been collaborating with Schneider Electric for many years, particularly working on the APC product portfolio. The Cabling & Infrastructure department (C&I) is an all-round player in the datacenter market. C&I designs, plans and implements complex ICT-related solutions for network connectivity and IT infrastructure. In addition to installing and maintaining complete ICT environments, the department can also manage their entire life cycle.
High level of quality
"Over the past 15 years we have gained a great deal of experience in installing Schneider Electric equipment," says Andy Vanbrabant, Director of C&I. "Both we and our customers greatly appreciate the quality of their range of products. The fact that we now have been reaffirmed as an Elite Partner is a great recognition of our efforts".
"An Elite Partner has to retrain several times a year, both commercially and technically," said Van Tricht. "In recent years Simac has proven that they are experts in many domains, while having the right amount of experienced people at their disposal to bring projects to a successful conclusion. We are very impressed by their quality. If we sometimes have a shortage of resources, we know that we can always call on Simac for assistance".
Even more intensive cooperation
In addition to being an Elite Partner, Simac was also certified as a 'Service Partner'. This means that the Cabling & Infrastructure department is allowed to maintain Schneider Electric equipment and to use the installed base as a replacement market. In that respect, the cooperation between the two organizations is becoming ever closer.
