Avnet Government Solutions Expands GSA Schedule with Catalogic

Avnet Government Solutions has expanded its General Services Administration (GSA) schedule to include Catalogic Software technology products and solutions.

Catalogic Software helps organizations manage and orchestrate the use of data in support of mission-critical operations. This will allow Avnet Government Solutions to better serve its government (federal and state, local and education) partners, and broaden their offerings for the public sector. The addition of Catalogic to Avnet Government Solutions’ GSA schedule gives partners access to the federal government’s largest Government-Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC), which agencies use to purchase innovative solutions for their IT needs, without making the investments to hold their own contract.

“This is yet another important step in Avnet Government Solutions’ commitment to building a complete portfolio of value-added offerings for U.S. government customers,” said Pete Rzonca, vice president of Avnet Government Solutions. “We created Avnet Government Solutions to provide our partners with a single source for all the resources they need to succeed in pursuing government IT business. The addition of Catalogic solutions will further enable Avnet Government Solutions to help our partners profitably increase their government business.”

Launched in May 2014 as a new business to help independent software vendor (ISV), systems integrator (SI), managed service provider (MSP) and value-added reseller (VAR) partners capture IT market share with the U.S. government, Avnet Government Solutions focuses on the federal and state, local and education markets via its holistic approach to pursuing these market opportunities – combining business development, capture and compliance assistance with Avnet’s more than 90 years of technology distribution expertise.

“IT organizations in federal agencies recognize that advanced data management is at the heart of their mission-critical IT functions, including disaster recovery, test and development, data protection and analytics,” said Tom Grave, vice president of marketing at Catalogic Software. “Catalogic Software is excited to partner with Avnet Government Solutions to deliver a holistic approach to copy data management to public sector customers, empowering them to reduce costs while improving their ability to deliver the required data access to their internal customers, and to taxpayers at large.”
