Westcon charged with delivering Lenovo’s PC portfolio to NZ market

“With the aid of Westcon New Zealand, I look forward to bolstering Lenovo’s footprint in the local commercial space.”

Westcon has today announced its appointment to distribute Lenovo’s PC Portfolio in addition to the Server & Storage products currently distributed via Westcon Group New Zealand.

Terms of the deal sees Lenovo, the world’s largest PC manufacturer, and Westcon partner to bring to the channel a full portfolio to service the enterprise, mid-market and SMB spaces in New Zealand.

The growing partnership for Westcon and Lenovo is designed to give new Zealand customers access to an end-to-end solution from the Desktop to the Server Room, offering Infrastructure that keeps pace with technology developments globally and enabling the channel locally.

“New Zealand is a key growth market for Lenovo and it’s exciting to be able expand our long-standing relationship with Westcon New Zealand for the distribution of our industry-leading commercial PC products,” says Fred Viet, Channel Director, Lenovo A/NZ.

“Together with our wider enterprise offerings, Westcon New Zealand will be invaluable in growing Lenovo’s Enterprise Business Group in the New Zealand marketplace.

“This expanded partnership will not only enhance Lenovo’s already strong distribution network but deliver greater reach to service new resellers that are not in the Lenovo partner community today.

According to Viet, Lenovo has grown faster than the market for more than four years because of their exceptionally engineered products.

Viet believes Lenovo is creating “true differentiation from the competition” thanks to its vertically integrated end-to-end business model.

For Viet, this model is unique among major technology companies and is a significant source of competitive advantage, helping the company to bring more innovation to market, more efficiently.

“It is great to be able to offer a complete solution with end point devices becoming more relevant with the growing adoption of Cloud and BYOD in New Zealand,” adds Mark Baker, Country Manager, Westcon Group New Zealand.

“As a Westcon Group partner, Lenovo will provide our customers with a broad and consistent portfolio in New Zealand, while leveraging Westcon’s market expertise to drive solutions to market.”

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
