back to article Look what the Softcat dragged in: Revenues grow 21% as UK reseller refuses to blink at Brexit

With Brexit possibly just around the corner, reselling machine Softcat says it has made all the preparations it can to minimise the impact on the supply chain and sales.

    I looks like most companies are spending money now to prepare for the Brexit bug (like we all did back in 1999) and that's boosting the economy in many areas ... but where is it going? COBOL and FORTRAN programmers were minting money prior to 2000 but these days not so much. Will we be ready to the post-Brexit situation? At least with the Millennium bug we knew when it was due - once I saw that everything was OK that night, I opened a bottle of Talisker ....

    Is that the same feline as the (alleged) cat of the French EU minister called "Brexit"?

    Thank goodness one company isn't joining the mass hysteria

    Nobody knows how it will go, and most should prepare for multiple scenarios. Good on Softcat, actually doing what all businesses should be doing, and being ready for whatever happens. Substitute 'Brexit' for 'any other business threat'* and there really is no difference. It's called 'contingency', I believe. If you can't handle Brexit, you are a very poor manager/company indeed.

    We use Softcat, and my biggest complaint is that they never ever stop ringing us, and they don't take no for an answer, and they're always trying to flog some stupid services scheme that we're not interested in and have told them before we don't want.

    It's gotten to the point that when we see a Softcat call we just pick up and put the phone straight back down now.

      Try using a partner staffed with grown ups instead of kids in a call centre?

    though the UK's exit from the EU seems not to have affected financial results so far

    NSS it hasnt happened yet.

    The guys and Gals from softcat are great, they still invite us to events and provide the refreshments, and to my knowlede, we havent even bought anything from them, ever.....
