UK-based Oracle Platinum Partner, Explorer, have been recognised for their achievements at the Oracle Excellence Awards, winning “Oracle Partner of the Year: Volume Sales – EMEA ”. The Award was announced at Oracle Open World, San Francisco on Sunday 15th September. This award comes in quick succession to Explorer receiving the coveted Systems award at the Oracle EMEA Systems Partner Summit, earlier this month in Malaga.
“Recognition of any kind, from Oracle, helps remind our people that their commitment to customers is valued and appreciated, not just in the UK but on a global scale” responded Ian Thomason, Managing Director. He added, “It proves that Partners have real value to bring to Oracle and that customers are recognising the value that the channel brings to help them deliver on their goals.”
The latest Award showcases the commitment that Oracle specialised Partners have to innovation and solving critical business challenges using Oracle technology. Jon Lingard, Sales & Marketing Director said “We are more than just a Reseller. Explorer is adept in taking Oracle’s standard product offerings and seeking out the maximum value and return for our customers, whether this is aligning Engineered Systems and Oracle Cloud to develop a unique proposition around Cloud Adjacent Architecture or combining the value of Oracle’s powerful Application Express (APEX) with Autonomous Cloud services, as two prime examples. With innovation from Oracle, these products and Cloud services create compelling solutions and accelerate the time to value with quantifiable benefits for all our customers”.
The announcement marks the first Global Award that Explorer has received, and arrives in conjunction with planning celebrations for the companies’ 25th anniversary, in 2020. Jon Lingard summed up with, “This latest EMEA Award has come at a time of rapid expansion in the UK, and we are doubling the size of our Head Office to accommodate headcount growth and to set us up for the next phase of our business”.
