Local technology retailer Harris Technology has formed a partnership with ninemsn which will see the e-commerce retailer utilising a piece of the major Internet company's valuable home page real estate.
Harris Technology, which sells in excess of 30,000 hardware and software products online, hopes to have the link up and running within weeks to capitalise on the huge number of Internet users bookmarking www.ninemsn as their home page.
In what is yet another coup for Harris, Internet users will now be able to make online computer purchases at ninemsn through a direct link to the Harris Technology Website (http://www.ht.com.au).
"We are very keen to be involved in this venture with one of Australia's leading networks," said Ron Harris, founder and managing director of Harris Technology. "Internet shopping is going to boom. The easier we make it for our customers to browse and buy, the more they will shop online."
Christa Davies, director of shopping at ninemsn, welcomed Harris Technology to the partnership. "Harris Technology is a proven leader in its field and is a perfect partner for our online shopping service."
