AppSense has announced Computacenter, Kelway and Ultima as its first UK Platinum partners since the accreditation was launched earlier this year.

The provider of User Environment Management (UEM) solutions says all three have developed their businesses using AppSense to deliver “the best possible user experience across all desktop deployments.”

The three are also Citrix Platinum Solutions Advisors, while Computacenter and Kelway are also VMware Premier Partners, with Ultima holding a silver level accreditation.

“Customers depend on AppSense to integrate with Citrix and VMware to deliver an optimal user experience. Having key partners with a first-rate understanding of the solutions from each company, and how they integrate is a key focus for AppSense,” says Remco Postma, AVP SI & channels EMEA.

“Computacenter, Kelway and Ultima are committed to deliver compelling value to their customers and as such see AppSense as a key differentiator across their desktop business. This has produced impressive results and deserves to be recognised and rewarded.”

“AppSense is a key element of the Ultima portfolio that also includes Microsoft, Citrix and VMware enabling us to offer a complete desktop virtualisation solution to major brands and organisations,” says Dave Rogers, services director at Ultima. “The AppSense product range has been key to our growth since 2011, both as a stand-alone product and optimising our Citrix and VMware implementations.”

“We are delighted to have been recognised by AppSense,” says Simon Ashall, vendor & alliances manager at Kelway. “AppSense’s User Environment Management software and the integration with our other key partners is critical to our success.”

“Our relationship with AppSense continues to strengthen our market differentiation and the value we offer our desktop customers. We are looking forward to seeing more growth as we move forward with our platinum partner status,” adds Darron Knibbs, technology leader at Computacenter.

AppSense also appointed an internal sales development team this year to generate new business leads for partners and revised and extended market development funds.
