London-based independent IT Consultancy beats the big boys yet again at the European IT Excellence Awards

2 April 2014

Services, announced today that it has been named best Data Centre Solution Provider at the European IT Excellence Awards.

The European IT & Software Excellence Awards are the only pan-European awards which recognise the crucial role that Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and Solution Providers have in delivering real-world solutions. The awards attracted entries from 25 countries, and these entries had to be supported by an endorsement by the client. 81 companies from 16 countries made the finals. The winners were selected by an independent panel of consultants and editors.

Matt Tomon, Founder & CEO of Green Fields said “We are absolutely thrilled to have been named European Data Centre Solution Provider of the Year. For an independent company such as ours to go up against some of the biggest IT solution providers in Europe and win is a massive achievement for the whole team. We have always looked to combine the stability & leading-edge technology of an enterprise-level solution provider with the flexibility and focus on client relationships that you get with an independent consultancy. This award demonstrates that there is a growing market of clients who are looking for exactly that approach.”

The award continues a trend of industry recognition for Green Fields, with the London-based IT consultancy having previously being finalists in Technology Transformation, Managed Services, Convergence Solution & Data Centre categories across a range of prestigious competitions as well as winning European Service Provider of the Year (2011) & European Cloud Managed Service of the Year (2012) at previous European IT Excellence Awards.

“We are finding a consistently high level of entries for each of these annual awards, and we had an impressively wide range of industries and solutions addressed,” says John Garratt, Editor of IT Europa. “What impressed us this year was the quality and the measurable returns many of these projects delivered. Many have total paybacks many times the value of the IT investment, and we are seeing many of these projects delivered as part of a continuing expansion of productive investment. This shows what a great relationship these IT suppliers have with their customers, and how customers are keen to work with suppliers on a long term change to their organisations.”

The awards categories were divided into several groups: the ISV categories were for software houses, app developers and integrators supplying systems for vertical markets, government or custom environments. The Solution Provider categories were for complete solutions, often delivered with a strong services element, and finally the supplier categories, for which channel companies nominated their distributors, service providers and vendors for the support provided through their channel programmes.

In congratulating the winners, Alan Norman, Managing Director of IT Europa said: “the overall quality of entries was extremely high and demonstrated the depth of talent in the ISV and channel communities across Europe. I congratulate all the winners and wish them and all the finalists every success in the year ahead.”

Matt Tomon concludes: “We have had a fantastic few years at Green Fields, with our services firmly focused on technical innovation, service delivery & client relationships. The recognition of our achievements in these areas by our peers, competitors & clients gives us even more confidence that we can get even better in the future.”
