Dell expands South Island channel program with CCL partnership

“We’re seeing Dell really embrace the New Zealand market in terms of its channel strategy which has created a great opportunity for us."

Dell has announced Computer Concepts Limited (CCL) as its preferred partner for business IT equipment in New Zealand’s South Island, the deal came into effect in February this year.

The move follows similar agreements in other markets worldwide and builds on Dell’s existing PartnerDirect Program, meaning partners and customers can now access Dell’s products quicker through the CCL.

Dell has selected CCL as their partner based on its strong reputation in the market as a trusted and capable, client focused partner.

“Dell is continuing to invest in the channel, and partnerships with channel partners like CCL increase our ability to pursue our long-term strategy, providing customers with the best choice, solutions and support,” says James Arnold, General Manager, Dell New Zealand.

At present, Arnold says Dell has transformed its business model over the years to a multi-channel approach, which creates value for partners.

“We’re seeing Dell really embrace the New Zealand market in terms of its channel strategy which has created a great opportunity for us,” adds Andrew Allan CEO, CCL.

“Dell subsequently proposed a channel model in the South Island, which included migrating some existing Dell clients over to a channel partner.

“This has helped us maintain the independence we require and we have complete confidence in the portfolio we will be offering from Dell.

“The onboarding and training provided by Dell has enabled us to bring our team up to speed quickly and we now have a dedicated Dell team with Dell’s products successfully integrated into our portfolio of offerings.”

Allan says the majority of Dell customer’s identified for transition have done so with CCL investing in a dedicated team of Dell experts to make this transition smooth for existing and new customers.

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.
