"This award reflects the vital role Softchoice plays in helping our
clients transform their business by embracing the shift towards
increasingly mobile work styles," said David MacDonald, President and

themselves, we're proud to work with leading partners like Citrix to
provide holistic solutions that improve business, and make life better
and more productive for employees and the IT teams that support them."

This belief has led Softchoice to develop unique capabilities to assist

mobile devices in a given environment as well as the potential impact
on security and IT infrastructure. Softchoice also provides fast,
reliable fulfillment around the procurement and roll-out of mobile
devices and related software licensing. Lastly, in 2012, Softchoice
launched Softchoice Cloud™, a secure online platform that simplifies the purchase, deployment and
management of Software-as-a-Service applications - allowing IT
departments to provide easy, secure access to more than 50 leading SaaS

the Year", said Mike Fouts, Vice President, Americas Channels & Field
