Dicker Data picks up new Compaq territoriesSYDNEY - Dicker Data is expanding its role as a distributor of Compaq products by moving in to Queensland, the ACT, the Northern Territory and Western Australia.
Dicker Data has distributed Compaq products in New South Wales for three years, and Compaq business unit director Paul Brandling says Dicker Data's performance there warrants the expansion. "They've done a great job for us. They don't have a particularly wide product range, but the products they do carry receive a lot of attention, and that's important to us."
Brandling says the invitation for Dicker Data to expand is part of Compaq's efforts to extend its sub-distribution network and geographic coverage - especially in country areas. "This allows us to focus on the SOHO market in areas where we may not have a large number of resellers," he said.
