The partnership, which has been in the works for over 12 months, will see RBC Group continue to expand its Managed IT Cloud Services within Interactive‘s three Australian-based data centres.
RBC’s Group General Manager Michael Manton said, “Our alignment with Australia’s largest privately-owned IT services provider will see two strong market performers develop a shared vision of humanising technology. RBC Group can deliver a broader service offering at a premium level to the Australian marketplace with the combination of technology experts with diverse skill sets and industry experience.
The partnership will allow RBC Group to deliver comprehensive services offering across Traditional Managed IT, Hardware Maintenance, Data Centre hosting, Multi-Cloud and Cyber Security Services. These capabilities are located in six secure, energy-efficient, and highly available data centres across the Australian Eastern seaboard.
Michael Manton said, “Interactive has impressive experience in running data centres for over 20 years. Their capacity gives us an enhanced level of enterprise cloud services that we can now make available to our SMB clients. The RBC/Interactive partnership is an exciting next step in the RBC journey”
RBC has already partnered with HP, the world’s largest provider of print and technology, to deliver premium PC & Print products to its clients.
Brad Wells, Director of Enterprise Sales at Interactive, said “Companies like RBC have built their reputation on delivering the best service at the right price, to their customers. We are excited to have RBC on board as a strategic alliance partner to offer our respective customers a broader range of service offerings.
Despite being in business for over 46 years, RBC Group’s year-on-year growth within the Managed IT space has allowed for significant expansion of its salesforce in QLD, NSW, and Victoria. RBC Group’s vision is to be an innovative and trusted partner delivering XaaS (Anything as a Service) to SMB clients looking for a competitive advantage. Our continued success will be realised by the commitment to excellence in managed services supported by a very experienced RBC Group Team, many of which have been with the company for over ten years.
RBC’s status as HP’s largest and the first ‘Tier 1’ provider of managed print and technology services in Australia has continued with the recent “Game Changer Award” for the fastest growing reseller of HP Workpath APPS.
