In an effort to provide product information in real time to companies that resell its products, Silicon Graphics Inc (SGI) last week announced that pcOrder.com will build a new Web infrastructure on the SGI site.
The goal is to offer up-to-date product information for channel partners, resellers and distributors, according to a company statement.
With the additional Web capabilities, resellers will be able to research, configure, price, quote, see availability and order products for their corporate accounts, SGI said. The 320 and 540 visual workstations and 1600SW flat-panel displays will be available first, and SGI "is looking to add more products", said Julie DiBene, a spokeswoman at the Californian company.
The new online capabilities will be rolled out first in North America in the third quarter of this year, followed by Europe, Japan and the Asia-Pacific region by year's end, DiBene said.
