TD SYNNEX forges collaboration in partner ecosystem to enable development of transformational new finance solution for public sector

  • Success story facilitated by the distributor is testament to long-standing partnerships and opportunity focus
  • Collaboration forged at TD SYNNEX-hosted event to explore opportunity of Dynamics Business Central

Basingstoke, 15 April 2024 – TD SYNNEX (NYSE: SNX) has supported a public sector specialist and a Microsoft Dynamics Business Central partner in forming an alliance that has led to the development of a transformational finance solution, tailored for town and parish councils, that is already generating new business only six months after the companies were introduced to each other.

TD SYNNEX hosted a partner meeting to explore the business potential of Dynamics Business Central and facilitated the connection between Microsoft partners CloudyIT and Prosperity 24/7. CloudyIT had several public sector customers it could potentially target with a finance solution, while Prosperity 24/7 had the requisite skills in Business Central to build an app that would meet their needs.

“It was meeting of minds that made sense and would deliver positive results for everyone”, said David Hall, managing director of CloudyIT. “Through our contacts and knowledge of the public sector market, we were able to identify what was needed by the customer and give Prosperity 24/7 a clear brief on what they needed to build.”

The result was GovFinance, a solution built on Microsoft Business Central and hosted on Microsoft 365, that harnesses the power of AI and automation to transform the way local governments manage their finances. It was launched at the SLCC (Society of Local Council Clerks) Conference in January this year and the first deal was signed seven days later.

“The GovFinance proposition has been received really well”, David Hall added. ‘It’s already led to one new customer acquisition and there are several more on the horizon, which is exactly what we wanted to achieve.”

Phil Berrill, head of ERP at Prosperity 24/7 stated: “We’re excited to be part of this collaboration. Our track record in delivering effective business solutions of this kind is testament to this type of partnership and the resulting benefits speak for themselves.”

Ian Turner, Microsoft Dynamics 365 UK lead, TD SYNNEX, said: “The success of GovFinance is an example of how we can help partners to unlock new value through personal connections and peer-to-peer engagement.  The success story is a testament to the power of our partner ecosystem when we work together to harness expertise and partnership opportunities. We are here to help our partners to connect, collaborate and make good use of their respective areas of expertise to the mutual benefit of their businesses and to their customers.”

TD SYNNEX has a full enablement and support programme in place for Dynamics 365 Business Central and brings partners together on a regular basis to discuss developments and opportunities. It also encourages partners to form alliances through its Industry Ecosystems initiative, under which it runs seven communities focusing on different vertical market and technology areas, such as Financial Services, Sustainability and Cybersecurity. An eighth ecosystem, which will focus on Artificial Intelligence (AI), will be launched in April.

Zyxel makes it simple for resellers to step up to Silver Partner status

Limited-time offer means that businesses can join the company’s updated partner programme at a higher level without making an up-front commitment to sales

Wokingham, 08 April 2024 – For a limited time, Zyxel Networks is making it easier for new resellers to join its recently-revamped channel programme at Silver Partner level, by deferring any requirement to achieve a specific volume of sales for the first year of participation.

Partners that apply for Silver level accreditation before the end of May will still be eligible to receive all the benefits that are on offer, and will still be expected to attain the required levels of certification. Silver partners will be expected to attain at least one sales and solutions and one technical accreditation within three months of being appointed.

The aim of the offer is to encourage more partners to step up to the higher level of skills and become better equipped to meet the growing needs of their customers, said Rachel Rothwell, Senior Regional Director, UK and Ireland, Zyxel Networks

“A growing proportion of end-user customers are making use of multiple Zyxel products – not only WiFi access points, but also our unified security gateways and our multi-gigabit switches. While they are relatively easy to deploy and to manage, it’s important that partners are ready to answer customer questions and deal with any issues that might arise. Stepping up to Silver level will equip partners to do that and enable them to build greater loyalty and more profitable long-term relationships with their customers.”

Zyxel is also keen to bring new partners on-board, she added. “We’ve only just refreshed our partner programme and we want to bring new partners on board to ensure we can maintain our growth and increase our market share. Ideally, they will come straight in at Silver level with the ambition to establish themselves and go on to become Gold Partners.”

Zyxel Silver Partners benefit from higher up-front rebates and – under the new partner programme – a faster response and higher margins for registered deals and special bids. They will be allocated to a specific regional account manager, be able to procure discounted demonstration kit, and are entitled to credits for configuration support and technical training. They will also receive faster guaranteed response times on technical queries.

Partners can also apply for Zyxel Gold status, which provides further benefits and preferential rebates and margins. Partners that offer managed services and want to make use of the Zyxel Nebula platform and hold a multi-tenanted licence, can also apply to become a Zyxel MSP Partner. MSPs can use Nebula to provide remote network and security management services for multiple customers from a central point.

Nebula comes with built-in security that makes use of Zyxel’s global intelligence cloud and with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies that to provide continuously updated protection for customers. These capabilities make it easier for MSPs to identify and address potential issues faster. In addition, Nebula can be used to enhance the performance of the entire network through the automatic optimisation of both WiFi and wired connections.

This accreditation enables partners to access and benefit from Cisco’s sustainable IT programs such as Takeback and Green Pay. The accreditation also helps partners to advance toward Cisco Select Partner status.

Zyxel Networks unveils fast and affordable WiFi 7 option for SMBs

The new NWA130BE offers unparalleled speed and ultra-low latency to supercharge WiFi for modern workplaces.

Zyxel Networks, a leader in delivering secure, AI-powered cloud networking solutions, has released its NWA130BE – BE11000 WiFi 7 Triple-Radio NebulaFlex Access Point (AP). With WiFi 7-supported devices ready to go mainstream in 2024, the NWA130BE enables small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to benefit from unparalleled network speed, capacity and the best possible WiFi experiences.

The NWA130BE delivers enterprise-class WiFi 7 performance, with easy installation and management, at a price that’s affordable for smaller businesses. It enables SMBs to enjoy the full benefits, future proofing and investment protection of the latest wireless standard,and take advantage of Zyxel Networks’ Nebula cloud management platform to configure, monitor and control network devices remotely.

“With the introduction of the NWA130BE, Zyxel Networks is setting a new standard for premium connectivity in business environments,” comments Mr. Kell Lin, Senior Associate Vice President, Networking Solutions Business Unit, Zyxel Networks. “The NWA130BE combines cutting-edge technology with thoughtful design, delivering exceptional performance and simplified management through our Nebula platform.”

The go-to option for WiFi 7 upgrades
The NWA130BE boasts a tri-band BE11000 architecture, supporting speeds of up to 11Gbps and providing double the bandwidth capacity of WiFi 6 through its extra-wide 320MHz channels, which are exclusive to WiFi 7 devices. It also incorporates a Qualcomm Quad-Core CPU for robust performance, and 4K QAM and Multi-Link Operation (MLO) capabilities, boosting peak data rates by up to 20 percent and reducing latency.

The NWA130BE makes upgrading to WiFi 7 easy thanks to its twin 2.5G Ethernet ports, which allow users to leverage affordable 2.5G switches, removing the need for costly re-cabling. With two 2.5G ports, the NWA130BE delivers greater flexibility and value for customers – comparable access points currently on the market typically have a single 2.5G port only.

Silencing the noise
The capability to distinguish the right signal and ignore noise is key to delivering the best WiFi performance. Thanks to its rectangular design, the NWA130BE maximizes the distance between antennas for a stronger signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and reduced interference, which is crucial for crowded or high-density workspaces. Additionally, its exclusive RF-first design minimizes potential interference, including that from nearby WiFi channels and 4G/5G mobile networks, through its Advanced RF Filter and Advanced Cellular Coexistence features.

AI-powered WiFi management and unified security
Assuring network service is essential to business efficiency and productivity, but it can become challenging when businesses scale.  Seamlessly integrated with Zyxel Networks’ Nebula cloud, the NWA130BE provides businesses with central management and full visibility of their networks. Nebula’s AI-powered WiFi Aid and Wireless Health features can automatically diagnose network access issues across the entire wireless client onboarding journey and resolve common WiFi issues, saving administrators’ time on tedious troubleshooting.

Businesses can also utilise Nebula’s Connect & Protect Plus (CNP+), a cloud-delivered security service directly attached to the AP. This provides users with additional protection from malware, phishing and malicious sites. Administrators can implement security policies directly through the AP without altering existing network infrastructure.
