Axis extends OPS distributor agreement into NZ

OPS will join Axis' existing distributors in NZ and will deal with the full suite of Axis products in the country.

Axis Communications and Open Platform Systems (OPS), an Australian value-added distributor of IT network access equipment, have extended their distribution agreement into the New Zealand market, effective immediately.

The announcement follows a successful partnership between the two companies in the Australian market since 2011.

By the terms of the agreement, OPS will join Axis' existing NZ distributors, and will be distributing the full suite of Axis products in the country.

“Axis Communications’ products are a welcome addition to our growing New Zealand portfolio. The extension of our relationship with Axis Communications reflects the increasing demand for IP network cameras from our partners servicing a range of industries and sectors in New Zealand,” said Kobi Ben-Shabat, MD of OPS.

Wai King Wong, country manager for the Oceania region at Axis Communications, commented, “The CCTV and video surveillance market is headed in a direction where revenue for network video is expected to overtake analogue for the first time ever. This growing demand is reflected in the extension of our distribution agreement with OPS into the New Zealand market.

“OPS enables its partners to tailor solutions to match their customers’ exact needs – providing end-to-end solutions across multiple technologies to suit all applications. OPS also provides support services that are second to none. This commitment to exceptional customer service is one of the main reasons we have hand-picked OPS to distribute Axis products across the region,” Wong concluded.

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.
