Denver, Colo. - March 7, 2011 – Global Technology Resources, Inc. (GTRI), a technology integrator headquartered in Denver, announced today that it received the “Healthcare Partner of the Year for Public Sector” award. GTRI was in attendance when Cisco unveiled the winners March 1st at its annual channel partner conference in New Orleans.
"Cisco works diligently with all of its channel partners, and it is an honor to announce GTRI as a Cisco Partner Summit regional award recipient," said Jim Sherriff, senior vice president, U.S. and Canada Partner Organization at Cisco. “The Federal healthcare award presented to GTRI recognizes its performance and expertise as a Cisco channel partner in 2010.”
"GTRI is excited that we have dedicated a business unit to such an exciting vertical market. Although we have been working with hospitals, medical device companies and clinical applications for over a decade, we felt this was the right time to make the financial commitment to take our practice to the next level. Cisco is a vital partner to our company's ecosystem and it is an honor to receive their recognition in such a highly competitive landscape,” said Charlie Franco, Director of Healthcare Solutions at GTRI. "The convergence of historically silo-based medical applications onto the enterprise network is creating a challenge for both IT and clinical staff alike. GTRI's value proposition is unique in its ability to provide integration solutions that address these challenges from an unbiased, holistic approach".
“GTRI takes pride in our Cisco expertise,” said Greg Byles, CEO at GTRI. “Our healthcare award demonstrates our ability to bring together capabilities and solutions to add significant value for our customers in an industry that is required to meet very strict guidelines.”
