Egypt-based IT giant Raya has been named as a platinum partner for storage and security software giant Symantec. Gaining platinum partner status is recognition of Raya’s impressive performance, expertise and customer satisfaction levels. Ashraf Sabry, vice chairman and CEO IT at Raya, said: “Achieving the Symantec platinum partner status is certainly a great asset for Raya, especially since it carries immense credibility in the market. As a matter of fact, several governments and large corporations have made this level of certification a pre-requisite for companies seeking to invest with them.” “As a Symantec platinum partner we will continue to deliver the highest value to customers and demonstrate our expertise in multiple Symantec solutions sets, consistently attaining a high level of customer satisfaction,” Sabry added. Platinum status is the highest level that can be reached within Symantec’s partner programme and carries with it a host of benefits including the opportunity to develop a closer professional relationship with Symantec. Raya will also receive additional benefits linked to marketing, sales and technical resources as well as joint-planning activities alongside Symantec. Mohammed El Nakib, Symantec country manager for Egypt and Levant, said: “Symantec is continuously looking for ways to enhance its relationships with its resellers and the partner programme is one of the ways we use to recognise excellence in the channel.” “Raya Corporation has been outstanding in its performance and has proved time and again to be a key partner to Symantec and we believe that awarding them the platinum partner status is the best way to reward them,” he added. Four of Raya’s employees have qualified as Veritas certified specialists with an additional two now recognised as Veritas certified professionals. Raya has also consistently achieved its Symantec revenue targets and maintained a high level of customer satisfaction. Egypt-based Raya now has operations in Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Algeria and the USA. In total the company now employs approximately 2,300 staff.
