The Brisbane-based IT&T service provider, Byte Power Group, has announced the signing of a business partner appointment agreement with HP through its Hong Kong subsidiary, Byte Power HK.
The agreement follows the opening of the company’s new Hong Kong office in March.
The accredited partner program will provide Byte Power with benefits such as assistance with sales and participation in HP’s selected tactical margin enhancement program.
The company will also have access to technical support and training, and well as customer financing on HP purchases.
The partner program will also allow the two companies to jointly bid for major accounts within Hong Kong where many regional multinational headquarters are prominent, according to Byte Power Australia chief executive officer, Alvin Phua.
“The partnership with HP Hong Kong enables us to interface with corporate and government opportunities in the area,” he said.
The program would also enable Byte Power HK to add HP products to the extensive range of products and services already offered by the subsidiary, Phua said.
“We are currently working with a fairly large conglomerate in Hong Kong which also has a presence in greater China, although I cannot disclose their name at present,” he said.
The deal will entail Byte Power HK taking over the procurement of the organisation’s IT&T as it moves forward, according to Phua.
A formal arrangement will be announced within the next four to eight weeks.
The company is also partnering with the Queensland department of state development to target the Hong Kong and China region.
This month it will also join a Queensland government mission to Hong Kong and Taiwan that is aimed at promoting information technology services to the region.
Byte Power Australia is an associate partner of HP Australia.
