Australian and New Zealand assembler PC Direct has announced it will include Philips monitors with its systems.
Philips will supply 15in and 17in monitors for both of PC Direct's Australian and NZ operations. Rowan Schaaf, PC Direct's general manager of sales and marketing, predicted the new arrangement with Philips would be in full swing in the next two months.
He said that for the past five years, it has sourced monitors from one supplier -- KFC, Taiwan -- but had recently experienced quality and supply problems.
Schaaf claimed that his customers were looking for the "brand comfort", which Philips was able to provide with its monitor supplies.
