Pro2col named TAG award finalists

Pro2col’s contribution to the thriving transatlantic economy was recognised at a prestigious award ceremony in London last night.

We were named finalists in the TransAtlantic Growth Awards hosted by BritishAmerican Business (BAB) at the Grange Hotel, St Paul’s.

BAB celebrate the special relationship between businesses exporting and investing across the transatlantic corridor, in a relationship their CEO Duncan Edwards describes as “deeply intertwined.”

The team from Pro2col were shortlisted for our work serving UK customers of US software vendors in the Micro Inward Investment Gold Award category.


“We’re delighted to have been named finalists. As partners, we work as an extension of the US software vendors who don’t have a footprint in the UK. We serve their customers, adding value through our niche technical expertise and helping them get the highest possible return on investment on their data transfer solution. Our UK-based technical support is particularly valuable, because it means customers do not have to wait for US services to come online.”

Pro2col Managing Director James Lewis


The key components to Pro2col’s successful growth are partnerships with the right US vendors and an expanding portfolio of services. The leadership team identify vendors with a strong brand, exceptional products and promising future roadmap, building partnerships and trust. Pro2col work with nine US vendors to grow their share of the UK market with niche technical expertise and a growing portfolio of services.

First certified UK Globalscape training

First certified UK Globalscape training

Pro2col hosted and attended the first certified UK Globalscape training in London last month. Their technical consultants took part and are now among a select few accredited EFT Admin and Advanced Workflow Engine (AWE) professionals across the globe.

James Lewis, Pro2col’s Managing Director said: “Pro2col’s technical team have been installing and providing support for UK Globalscape EFT users since 2010. They know this technology inside out. Receiving this formal certification is evidence of their depth of knowledge and experience and our customers will benefit from their expanded skillset.”

Globalscape’s EFT – or Enhanced File Transfer – is a leading secure file transfer product with users across the globe. Senior Consultant Adrian Acuña travelled from the Globalscape headquarters in Texas to deliver the two-day training.

IT administrators and engineers from a range of organisations took part in the tightly packed training agenda. They gained a fuller understanding of EFT functionality and learned how to get the most out of the product. The training on AWE proved to be particularly valuable, with delegates learning how to implement advanced workflows to deliver better error handling, manage unusual situations and conditions, and a range of other solutions.

Course content

  • Day one covered an introduction to EFT Server, including: Server administration and delegation; site setup and protocols; settings templates, user accounts, and permission groups; event rules; monitoring EFT Server activity; auditing and reporting; high availability and troubleshooting.
  • Day two focussed on AWE, including: AWE automation vs native automation; creating workflows; creating variables; flow control; loops; debugging workflows and error handling; text manipulation; automating file operations and procedures; automating FTP processes and cryptography and compression automation.

Online exam and certification

Following the training, delegates were invited to take an online exam, giving the following formal Globalscape accreditation:

EFT Associate Certification
Advance Workflow Engine
EFT Essentials – Administration


Pro2col Senior Technical Consultant Richard Auger said: “It was an intense but rewarding training programme. It is particularly valuable to understand why things work the way they do in EFT, rather than just how they work. This has given us a better understanding of the available possibilities and any limitations of the software.”
