September 22, 2017

M2 and its parent company, SCC, have been dubbed “HP Partner of the Year” at HP Reinvent: World Partner Forum.

At HP’s biggest global partner forum, HP Reinvent, held in Chicago, M2, a specialist print managed print services business, and its parent company SCC were given the prestigious award.

1400 of HP’s leading partners attended the forum this year, as well as the CEO of HP, Dion Weisler and his executive channel team.

Over 50 partners from across the globe were honoured with HP awards after being judged across a range of criteria “including innovation, category leadership across print, PC and supplier, distributor and re-seller categories.”

HP Inc. EMEA’s head of commercial and consumer channel, Pierre Jover, said, “SCC and its specialist MPS business, M2, is a shining example of why HP is so proud to be partner-first. I’m thrilled to award SCC and M2 with this prestigious honour, and look forward to continuing our partnership of innovation and growth for continued success. Congratulations!”

Will Carver, SCC’s UK alliances and partnerships director, commented, “Receiving this award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all the teams within SCC. As HP continues the digital transformation of print and personal systems, we are delighted to bring their innovative new products and solutions to our client base and the wider UK IT market.”

M2’s chief executive, John Taylor, said, “I am delighted that SCC and its specialist MPS business, M2, were confirmed as HP Partner of the Year for personal systems and MPS respectively. With combined growth well over 50%, this growth in a challenging market place illustrates the power of the HP product set as well as the hard work, focus and commitment of the people in SCC and M2 to outperform the market place. Customers are seeing the value of SCC and its breadth of offering  including a specialist MPS business, a unique offering in the market place.”

He went on to say, “HP have over 118, 000 partners in the world, only 50 were recognised in Chicago and only one from the UK, SCC. With SCC acquiring M2 in 2014 to deepen its proposition, MPS growth has organically exceeded 200%. When we overlay HP’s future ambition and commitment with print having acquired Samsung we are very optimistic that the future growth can exceed the historic growth trends.”
