Ontario VAR joins Dell’s PartnerDirect channel program

Dell Canada has added another channel partner to its PartnerDirect channel program.

The latest Dell partner is Jordan Engineering, a software solutions vendor and system integrator based in Beamsville, Ont. and with an office in Toronto. It serves a broad range of process and mechanical industry sectors including pulp and paper, metal refineries, power generation, mining, water treatment, pharmaceutical, transportation, chemical compounding and utilities.

“We’ve enjoyed a lengthy relationship with Jordan Engineering, supplying laptops, servers, storage and support for them and their customers over the years, and we now look forward to taking this to the next level,” said David Miketinac, vice-president and general manager of commercial sales for Dell Canada, in a statement. “Jordan Engineering has successfully carved out a niche as software engineers in the mechanical industrial segment. Having them join PartnerDirect meshes with Dell’s strategy of leveraging our channel partners as part of our end-to-end technology platform.”

Jordan Engineering’s customers require high availability and reliability for mission critical systems that control machinery in manufacturing plants. Working with Dell, Jordan Engineering will provide its customers with virtualized solutions that incorporate high redundancy, efficiency, scalability and enhanced functionality, at a similar cost to physical server solutions. The virtualized infrastructure will also allow for more frequent security updates, patching servers monthly on the fly with little to no downtime.

According to Jordan Engineering’s Founder and CEO, Sandra Murre, she learned of the Dell PartnerDirect Channel Program while attending a Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network conference in Toronto last year.

“My own experience with Dell has been nothing short of spectacular. From buying my first Latitude laptops 14 years ago, to engineering our software solutions on Dell hardware, to my participation in the DWEN conference, and to now becoming a fully-fledged Dell channel partner, I have experienced nothing but encouragement and support from the Dell team,” said Murre, in a statement. “We’re looking forward to the next chapter in our relationship and to working more closely with Dell to deliver the best possible solutions for our clients.”
