Heralding a new year in which networking sales are expected to increase, Alstom Information Technology has been appointed as the latest distributor for SMC & Accton Technology Australia.
As resellers gear up for the Y2K bug and an online Internet driven world, SMC & Accton Technology is looking at providing networking products to the reseller in the most efficient way claim company officials.
"If we make it easier for the reseller to do business with us then they will keep coming back, it's that simple," said Patrick Li, country manager for SMC, who claims the move will be mutually reassuring for the reseller market.
In a joint statement, officials claim that SMC will be working with their distributors to ensure the channel receives all the product and technical support they require, with Alstom being brought on board to lead the way.
"Alstom Information Technology can provide the backup services required by resellers to support SMC &Accton Technology Australia's products," said Simon Johnson, national sales manager for Alstom. "Ultimately, the aim is to ensure that resellers will find it both easy and profitable to deal with us."
