Interactive commits to Kiwi channel through Dicker Data

Agreement spans third-party hardware maintenance offering

Interactive has signed an extended distribution agreement with Dicker Data in New Zealand, designed to drive further growth through the local channel.

Covering the provider’s third-party hardware maintenance offering, the deal builds off an existing partnership between both parties in Australia.

“We are excited to bring to New Zealand our leading third-party hardware maintenance offering,” said Simon Durkin, director of hardware maintenance and field services at Interactive.

“Coming to market with Dicker Data extends our successful distribution relationship from Australia into New Zealand for the first time.”

With more than 30 years market experience, Interactive provides multi-vendor hardware maintenance, cloud and managed services, in addition to data centre and business continuity services.

Durkin said partners can now tap into the provider’s “enhanced service levels” in a bid to prolong the life of existing hardware investments, backed up by local parts availability.

“As consumers and resellers develop their responses the digital age, it is critical they consider the maintenance and servicing of their ageing equipment,” added Lisa Tierney, general manager of Dicker Data.

“For our reseller community being able to maintain their customers’ hardware supported by the experience of Interactive is a game-changer for their businesses across New Zealand.”

Currently, Interactive supports over 300,000 devices in some 25,000 locations across Australia and New Zealand.

The agreement comes weeks after Interactive appointed Mike Bull as new director of cloud and managed services (CMS) operations, who returned to Australia after vacating his role as country manager of Fujitsu New Zealand.

As revealed by Reseller News, Brisbane-based Bull joins Interactive with experience across sales, operations, procurement, logistics and contract management, spanning a wide range of industries.

Most recently, Bull was country manager of New Zealand at Fujitsu, and was replaced by Mika Joronen effective 23 October.

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

A Kumeu, Auckland, winery was the venue for a Malwarebytes event for partner and prospect MSPs - with some straight shooting on the side. The half-day getaway, which featured an archery competition, lunch and wine-tasting aimed at bringing Malwarebytes' local New Zealand and top and prospective MSP partners together to celebrate recent local successes, and discuss the current state of malware in New Zealand. This was also a unique opportunity for local MSPs to learn about how they can get the most out of Malwarebytes' MSP program and offering, as more Kiwi businesses are targeted by malware.
