Between them, the three contracts cover more than 4,000 devices and will deliver upwards of £10m in sales for the VAR. Additionally, M2 has signed a three-year extension to its contract with food service company Compass. By the end of the expanded contract, the channel player will have worked with the FTSE 100 outfit for a total of eight years.
M2 chief executive John Taylor said: "M2 has enjoyed a really great start to 2014, with these four wins following a successful acquisition by SCC. We are delighted to have joined SCC and the benefits are already starting to show. M2 remains keen to achieve its next level of ambitious growth, with a business owner that understands the technology market and has the vision to see us become Europe's largest MPS business."
