SHI Customer Summit: Taking Your Enterprise Mobility to the Next Level

SHI 2016 Mobility SummitMobility isn’t just about your employees’ productivity. A strong IT mobility strategy can help your business reach customers at the exact time and place they need your help. With all the “noise” facing today’s decision-makers, when and how you drive customers to your brand is a key part of reaching new audiences.

Helping enterprise businesses optimize their mobility strategy is SHI’s goal – one that our mobility partners, including VMware, have recognized us for. To support the efforts of our clients, SHI will host two mobility summits that will focus on the best practices enterprise organizations can deploy to deliver the most efficient and secure mobile communications to their employees and customers. Leaders from the largest players in the mobility space will present insights and advice in the areas of security and compliance, network infrastructure, and the end-point experience.

The agendas for the two summits (scheduled for April 18-19 and May 5-6) are filled with breakout sessions from the mobility thought leaders of Apple, Microsoft, and SHI.

The April Summit will also feature keynotes from the following speakers: Continue Reading…

The best yet: SHI posts record revenue in 2015

Earnings ReleaseWe’re beginning to sound like a broken record, but that’s because we are … breaking records! 2015 was SHI’s best year yet with $6.8 billion in revenue — our strongest financial performance in a calendar year ever. The year was marked by robust and well-balanced growth from its four key sales divisions.

Overall, SHI increased revenue 14 percent year-over-year, in great part because of strengthened ties with our legacy and new partners, including Dell, HP Inc. and HP Enterprise (after splitting in 2015), VMware, Symantec, Lenovo, Adobe, and Apple. In 2015, Cisco became the fastest-growing partner among our top 10. We also saw 12 percent growth in Microsoft sales last year, and remain the company’s largest North American and global channel partner.

For CEO Thai Lee’s analysis of SHI’s 2015 results, as well as more facts, figures, and announcements read our official press release.

Sincere thanks to all of SHI’s customers, partners, and employees who made this possible!
