August 16, 2012 — Irvine, CA – Govplace, a leading Solution Provider for the public sector, announced today that its State, Local (Government) and Education Division (SLED) has recorded a record first half of the year for 2012, with year over year (YOY) revenue growth in excess of 47%.
According to Govplace CEO Adam Robinson, “We are pleased with the outstanding sales performance of our SLED group this year. Our company began its 15-year history in the Southern California SLED market and we continue to make significant investments in our team there. The recent growth validates our decision to add new pre-sales engineering and post-sales integration capabilities to the SLED organization which was already strong.”
Jeff Smith, Vice President for SLED Sales added, “We have a true commitment to new cloud offerings, and have been thoroughly investigating which technologies can be the greatest benefit to our SLED customers. We have added offerings such as Microsoft Office 365 and Google Apps to the portfolio, as we feel these solutions can be a good entry point for our customers who wish to slowly integrate into the new cloud ecosystem. We’ve also recently increased our advanced technical and sales certifications with HP, and added mobile device security and vulnerability management to our core competencies as a result of our partnership with McAfee.”
Smith continued, “One of our key differentiators in the SLED market is our direct and frequent interaction with the end-user customer base. In addition to standard sales calls, we conduct technology-specific seminars on subjects such as VDI, Disaster Recovery and Cloud Computing, which are of great interest to our clients. As a value-added reseller (VAR) and solution provider in this important space, we stay very focused on the ‘value’ that we bring to our customers. We are viewed as thought leaders in a number of emerging technologies and are always available to consult with existing and potential customers as they seek to implement the best solution for their specific requirement. With more than 15 years of experience in the space, we understand all aspects of the customer’s environment – budgetary, political and technological. We are proud of our accomplishments to date and expect to continue to increase our share of the California SLED market.”
