TPG to stay with channel

THE Australian arm of PC assembler TPG is moving its reseller business online and New Zealand plans to follow suit.

TPG New Zealand marketing manager Johnson Koo can’t say when the company will move online.

“At this stage I’m not sure when it will be but it will have no effect on our resellers,” says Koo.

TPG Australia has broadened its business to become the second-largest ISP, moving away from the financially unviable built-to-order PC market — although it still offers dealers a range of notebooks, PCs and peripherals.

Now the company will operate its PC sales and services from one office in Sydney.

Koo says TPG New Zealand’s core focus remains on building PCs and will remain loyal to its national network of value-added resellers.

It offers on-site warranty with new systems, and services most city-centres around the country.

Greymouth-based Camkyl Computers’ managing director Paul Rennie describes TPG as one of the best businesses he’s ever dealt with.

“Their back-up and service is excellent and we’ve been with them for 15 years,” he says.

Rennie says TPG has remained faithful and only ever sold through its authorised resellers.

“TPG machines are always of high quality. As you can imagine, we’ve got a large area to service so we need good, reliable equipment.”
