Westcoast win PCR Cloud Distributor of the year!

By Sian Walsh 

This time last week Westcoast were anxiously putting on those glad rags and preparing themselves for what was set to be a fun filled night at The Brewery in London for the annual PCR Awards, an event which brings the UK IT Channel together to celebrate the past year's achievements.

Having been shortlisted for two awards: Hardware Distributor and Cloud Distributor Westcoast nervously awaited the results.

Tension was high, a bead of sweat formed on the forehead of our normally ice cool MD. The room fell silent and the envelope was opened and then *Drum roll*...Westcoast were proudly announced as Cloud Distributor of the year! Instantly, the nerves were replaced with a sense of overwhelming achievement at the news of our very first PCR Award win.

It was a great feeling to go home with such a well recognised industry award. Although, we're still patiently waiting for PCR to get in touch to inform us of their Oscar esque faux pas for the other award ;)

In truth it came as little surprise after Westcoast’s Cloud record breaking business last year. Providing an incredible 120,000 seats of Office 365. The Westcoast Nebula Program demonstrated the unmatchable power and value of education in our business achieving a phenomenal 83% increase in cloud seats after introducing the program to our resellers.

Due to the high growth the Cloud Team has expanded rapidly, and is projected to continually increase as demand grows this year.

Delighted with the award win Managing Director Alex Tatham had this to say...

“What a wonderful accolade in this newest but increasingly important area of channel business. If you are not helping your customers to the Cloud already or you are but are dissatisfied with the service you are receiving – Westcoast’s award winning Cloud Team will help you. We love winning –  but we want to help our customers win awards too!”

It's been a great year and without our partners and the dedication from all at Westcoast we wouldn't have achieved this so a huge thank you to all those involved. We have lots of exciting things in the pipeline for next year and are hoping for an even bigger and better one, so keep an eye out.

If you'd like to get in touch with Westcoast's award winning Cloud Team and potentially bag yourself your own award call us on  0333 003 1701 or email us

In the mean time take a look at some of the pictures from the night, here's hoping that the memories of our achievement last longer than the hangovers.
