Ingram Micro has signed a distribution agreement with Roambee in New Zealand, an Internet of Things (IoT) provider specialising in supply chain, logistics and asset management solutions.

The new channel alliance aims to increase awareness of Roambee’s suite of products, while driving adoption of the vendor’s monitoring and tracking solutions and services nationwide.

“Its real-time monitoring solutions provide end-to-end visibility, robust data, and actionable analytics to enable organisations to improve their return on investment, mitigate risk, and improve business operations.

“More than 150 major companies around the world used Roambee solutions, which are designed for sectors such as manufacturing, logistics and supply chain, transportation, finance, pharmaceutical, and automotive.”

According to Edwin Winder - vice president of Partners and Alliances at Roambee - Ingram Micro’s “extensive reseller community” and “in-depth knowledge” were contributing factors in the decision.

“By teaming with Ingram Micro we will be able to rapidly increase the adoption of Roambee’s innovative technology,” he added. “Its strong global leadership is reflected in the superior customer service and deep technical expertise that it delivers to the local New Zealand market.

“We look forward to providing a range of solutions that will help Kiwi companies gain greater control and visibility of their assets.”

Roambee’s offering in New Zealand will include on-demand real-time solutions for vehicle and fleet monitoring, LTL and FTL monitoring, cold chain monitoring and package, box and pallet monitoring.

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.
