Networks First claims its decision to refocus on the channel has paid off after closing the books on a "record-breaking" year.
The third-party services outfit saw sales rise 17 per cent to £11.4m in its fiscal 2015, claiming new business orders rose 27 per cent and professional services mushroomed 95 per cent.
The Cisco partner also claims to have taken on 60 new partners in six months via its new graduate sales academy scheme, set up in the wake of its decision to turn its back on direct sales last year.
"Our commitment to the channel has paid dividends, which is reflected in the huge growth in professional services," said Networks First's managing director Tom Mulvaney (pictured).
"Not only that, annuity and product new business grew consistently and an outstanding renewals performance helped us to end the year on a high."
