Standing in front of a record attendance of partners, Paul Boshoff, GM of Printing and Personal Systems, HP New Zealand, kickstarted the company’s 2015 Sales Odyssey with two simple words…

“Thank you.”

Praising the Kiwi channel for an “outstanding performance” in 2014, Boshoff revealed that following a year of significant strife for the tech giant on a global scale, locally speaking, the market outlook remained strong.

“These are arguably the best set of results I’ve seen in ten years,” added Boshoff, alluding to HP’s leading 42.6 percent share of the New Zealand PC market during Q4.

Citing solid figures across the country, despite recent financial toil in the US, Boshoff moved to reassure the channel that when the company separates its consumer units away from its corporate business, the market will be benefited, rather than hindered.

“Through out our separation there has been a whole lot of behind the scenes work which will impact in country over time,” admitted Boshoff. “But the bottom line remains that the split will produce a reenergised and refocused HP.

“Our role is to provide the bricks and the channel community in New Zealand is there to provide the cement which holds the entire solution together. As a result we see great benefits to the channel community through the solutions we sell.

“The HP split amplifies the need for channel partners to execute on this strategy as we bring much more exciting bricks and leading edge products to the market.”

In continuing to lead the PC pack on Kiwi shores, ahead of rival vendors Acer, Apple, Toshiba and Dell, HP, Oliver Hill - PPS Channel Manager, HP New Zealand, echoed Boshoff’s sentiments, calling for a repeat of the company’s stellar 2014 performance.

“HP is very excited about the channel this year,” he added. “Looking at global innovation, our vision is to also innovate locally through programs and promotions.

“We’re energised for the year ahead and want to help your business grow by engaging with us.

“We’ve launched, and continue to launch, technology that is disrupting the market and for us, there’s never been a better time for partners to get involved.”
