Jordan Engineering Leverages Dell Technology To Ensure High Availability And Security For Its Customers’ Mission Critical Systems; Company Joins Dell PartnerDirect Channel Program

Stocks in this article: DELL

Jordan Engineering, an Ontario-based software solutions group, is the latest Canadian Value Added Reseller (VAR) to join Dell’s PartnerDirect Channel Program. The company 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. Its new status as a Dell channel partner enables Jordan Engineering to better serve its customers through faster access to new product releases. As a channel partner, the company also benefits from access to Dell training and certification programs and pricing advantages that allow its business to remain competitive.

Jordan Engineering’s customers require high availability and reliability for mission critical systems that control machinery in manufacturing plants. A single server failure could result in financial losses of up to $50,000 per hour in production costs. Working with Dell, Jordan Engineering is now able to provide its customers with virtualized solutions that incorporate high redundancy, greater efficiency, scalability and enhanced functionality, at a similar cost to physical server solutions.

Customers also benefit from improved security through virtualization. Jordan Engineering can now perform more frequent security updates, patching servers monthly on the fly with little to no downtime. This represents big cost savings for clients who might otherwise have compromised security in order to maintain server availability. The company also uses technology to enable its own business using a virtualized solution based on Dell™ PowerEdge™ servers running desktop virtualization software, Dell PowerVault™ direct-attached storage arrays and thin-clients using Dell Latitude laptops.

Jordan Engineering’s Founder and CEO, Sandra Murre, learned of the Dell PartnerDirect Channel Program while attending a Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network (DWEN) conference in Toronto last year and realized the expanded relationship would be a perfect fit for her company. Sandra is active in the global DWEN community and recently attended the DWEN global conference in Istanbul, Turkey.

Quotes:

“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. 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.” – Sandra Murre, CEO and founder, Jordan Engineering.

“We’re delighted to expand our relationship with Jordan Engineering and take pleasure in welcoming them formally as a PartnerDirect channel partner. 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. 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.” – David Miketinac, vice president and general manager, Commercial Sales, Dell Canada.
