Unisys wins global service contract

Initially, Unisys will provide services for X-IO customers in the Asia Pacific and EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) regions.

Unisys has won a three-year contract to provide global IT support services for customers of X-IO, a provider of information storage systems.

Under the terms of the contract, Unisys engineers can handle installations and on-site maintenance for X-IO in more than 100 countries, including New Zealand.

According to the company, the contract includes provision of break-fix and professional services to new and existing customers for all of X-IO’s storage systems.

“X-IO products are highly reliable and rarely need servicing,” said Ronald George, VP of global services at X-IO.

“Unisys’ appointment provides an extra insurance policy for our customers. Picking a single service partner with so much expertise adds further depth to our support services.”

“We are excited that X-IO has chosen Unisys as its support partner,” said Ron Frankenfield, president, Unisys global managed services. “By providing comprehensive, timely service, we can free X-IO to concentrate on its rapid growth strategy and enable its enterprise customers to benefit consistently from X-IO’s world-class storage technology.”

Initially, Unisys will provide services for X-IO customers in the Asia Pacific and EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) regions, with services in North America, Latin America and the Caribbean to follow.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
