There are only a few in Denmark who have the same HPE status as Niels Vejrup and it is something to strive for. The status Niels already has as a HPE Platinum Partner provides access to unique benefits such as first level support, but Niels’ newfound HPE Platinum Partner raises the advantages up another level. This is because we now have the ability to offer our customers a completely unique insight into new launches and product development. “Access to knowledge is what is at play here,” Niels explains. “Globally, there are a couple hundred of us who have this status and we are given direct access to the ones in charge of products and branding at HPE. That is as close as you can get to the products without actually working for HPE, meaning you have direct access to the source.” In total, it becomes the ultimate HPE package to offer to our customer base.
Jimmy Hougaard from HPE adds to this: “This exemplifies HPE’s overall partner strategy. We take them with us all the way to the back office. But the reward goes both ways. We share our thoughts and discuss the future. Conversely, people like Niels help us so much by providing critical experience from customer interaction. He helps by providing us feedback on how the products and Road Maps are performing in the market,” he says. “It also allows Niels and Danoffice IT the opportunity to contribute to the development of the IT of the future.”
Planning for the Benefit of Everyone, Not Just Business
Road Maps and the like might seem to go with business and this is certainly an area in which HPE has been very successful for many years and according to Niels, the benefits are substantial, however, not solely for that target group. “In fact, by having this access, we are reaching a broad spectrum. EVERYONE can benefit from our new early insight into products and confidential information,” he says and adds: “Certainly, this will also allow the large customers with big HPE purchases to plan substantially better. They will benefit from our insight into things such as Road Maps. To those customers, it will be more about strategic planning whereas the smaller customers will be focused on the products,” Niels says.
Naturally, we are proud of Niels’ accomplishment and the strengthening of our partnership and collaboration with HPE which is something both Jimmy and HPE join in on: “The title obviously also comes with a rubber stamping of Niels’ and Danoffice IT’s commitment and abilities. We are providing Niels with access only very few people on a global scale have and we do so because he deserves it. He was already highly certified with HPE and he has a great amount of knowledge and experience, wherefore, we are truly excited to have him on board.
