Yet again we have experienced strong organic growth across EMEA, through the strategic expansion into more regions and acquisition of new customers. ASM’s unique business model continues to support a fulfilment infrastructure across 4 continents and 55 countries globally.

We continue to partner with disruptive vendors to bring value to Global System Integrators and Value-Added Resellers, which in turn support organisations across the globe.  We have also expanded our ecosystem of Partners and forged new relationships with vendors whose technologies are truly disrupting the market.

During the year, we opened the doors to our prestigious, state of the art office at Gadbrook Business Centre which was built with sustainability, innovation and collaboration at the forefront. Our expansion has also created new positions within the business, and we are delighted to welcome our new colleagues to the team.

As we look forward to the coming financial year, we are excited to collaborate in person with our customers, partners and vendors, developing our strong relationships to stand us in good stead for continued growth.

Recently the ASM team joined Atos for their 5th Annual IT on the High Seas, raising money for The Princes Trust through their Million Makers scheme.

“What’s knot to like? Raising money for a great cause, whilst learning an exciting new skill, it takes remote working to a whole new level. As the conversation flowed from the weather to waves to work, we were out of our comfort zone and learning about teamwork whilst supporting The Princes Trust Charity. This is my favourite corporate event and was superbly organised. Thanks to everyone involved, especially our Atos crew members for daring to sail with us novices. Ahoy!”

ASM exhibits at Computacenter Group Kick Off

Earlier in the year, way back before social distancing was even a thought in our minds, ASM exhibited at Computacenter’s global kick off in Manchester.

Over the years the event has become a real focus for Computacenter as it allows one point a year where every salesperson at the company can get together. The reasons for this are clear. Firstly to celebrate the success of the previous year, whilst also to discuss and plan for the year ahead. It gives a unique opportunity to gain a deep understanding of the strategy of the business and ensure the support is there to achieve those goals.

Just as importantly, the event is also a great time to meet up with vendor partners and account managers to build on relationships. That’s where ASM comes in. As the appointed Preferred Partner for Non-Focus products for Computacenter Group we work hard to support software, services and hardware requirements that are not available through broadline distribution.

The global kick off is an invitation only event for Computacenter’s partners who add the most value and have become an integral part of their business so here at ASM we were extremely proud to receive our invitation.

Over the course of the two-day event we had an extremely busy, central stand with over 700 visitors from the UK, France, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands and the USA. This kind of event offers our account management team invaluable time with contacts from these countries while continuing to build upon our relationships within Benelux and the US.

Simon Keilty, Business Development Manager for Computacenter, said

“the event is best opportunity to meet different people from around the business and understand their challenges for the coming year and seeing how we can best support them”.

For this event we shared the experience with some of our key strategic partners and were able to showcase disruptive and innovative technology direct to the wider sales team.

We really appreciate the chance to be involved in an event such as the Group Kick Off and we’re looking forward to next year’s event already.

ASM Connect 2020

Connecting our customers to innovative and disruptive technologies.

Held at the Old Trafford stadium in Manchester, ASM Connect 2020 was a one-day exhibition, to showcase just a few of our strategic partners and the innovative and disruptive technologies we can provide.

Our visitors were given an exclusive tour of the football ground which was a key moment for many of the football fans in attendance. For us, the event provided a fantastic opportunity to communicate our key brand messages and display ASM Technologies’ and strategic partners throughout the ground and the event.

At ASM we deliver an infinite number of suppliers, many of whom would be seen as weirdware or niche. An event such as ASM Connect 2020 brings these suppliers straight to the customer so they can learn about innovative technology first-hand. For this event we hosted Opswat, LogMeIn, Jamf, Nitro, Subsidium, Forum Systems, Endace and Blancco. We had some great feedback from the event with one supplier telling us it was the most useful networking event they had ever been to.

The event was thoroughly enjoyed by all and we are already looking at where we can host ASM Connect 2021.
