Claranet’s Virtual Data Centre receives "MKB Proof Award"

Claranet has received the “MKB Proof Award” from WINMAG Pro Magazine and Baaz Magazine for its new Cloud Service ‘Virtual Data Centre’ (VDC).

Claranet’s VDC was described as an affordable, functional and easily managed service which is primarily suited to SMEs. The “MKB Proof Award” evaluates the best services and products aimed at the SME market by taking into account the opinions of experienced magazine editors, experts who have tested the service, as well as readers of WINMAG Pro and Baaz.

Recognition for a unique service

Patrick Herren, Sales Manager at Claranet Benelux said: "this award is a great boost for us, coming as it does from both experts and Baaz WINMAG Pro magazine readers. For us it’s recognition for the effort invested in this service by our team of engineers. Prior to the actual launch, they were engaged for a long time in the design of the platform and fine tuning its functionality and the user experience. We are therefore very pleased with this recognition from both industry experts and end-users; it shows that we really have a unique service, which adds value, particularly compared with other services in the market."

About SME Proof

Every year the editors of WINMAG Pro and Baaz magazine join forces to produce a joint publication MKB Proof - which bridges the gap between the typical IT and management magazines.

MKB Proof tests and reviews ICT products and services for the SME market, focusing not only on suitable hardware and software, but also how to maximize the value and benefits of using these products and services. In the 2012 edition, experts and vendors also discuss the products and services they use and provide – often the foundation of any modern SME office. In addition, readers of WINMAG Pro (ICT-users in SMEs) and Baaz (directors and managers in SMEs) have indicated in different studies how they are looking to invest in these products and services in the coming months.
