Raritan Appoints itX as an Australian Distributor

  • 04 June, 2007 09:56

<p>Raritan, a leading global provider of IT infrastructure management solutions including KVM switches, serial console servers, and remote power management devices, announced today it has appointed itX Group Limited as an Australian distributor.</p>
<p>Raritan Australia and itX signed the distribution agreement on May 9th, 2007 and itX are expected to begin processing Raritan orders the week commencing May 28th.</p>
<p>"itX is excited about the partnership,” said Greg Newman, General Manager of Distribution, itX. “We are particularly impressed with the level of local support as well as the leads, training, marketing support and deal registration discounts offered by Raritan Australia’s Certified Partner Program. We regularly receive KVM queries from Sun resellers and believe Raritan's enterprise-level range of IT infrastructure management solutions represent new opportunities for our partners.”</p>
<p>Gary Hull, Raritan’s Director of Sales, Australia and New Zealand said, “The growing demand for IT infrastructure management solutions has compelled Raritan to expand its Certified Partner Program to include a greater number of Tier 1 System Integrators and VARs (value-added resellers) to service ASX200 companies, as well as an extensive base of federal and state government agencies throughout Australia.”</p>
<p>“Throughout the selection process, itX demonstrated a high-level of experience, capability and focus in providing high standards in servicing and supporting a Tier 1 VAR network. Of equal importance, is itX’s current vendor portfolio which compliments Raritan’s enterprise-level IT infrastructure management solutions. We are delighted to publically announce itX’s introduction as one of our two local Australian Distributors."</p>
<p>According to Hull, many organisations within the public and private sectors, as well as a range of government agencies are facing higher expectations in terms of improvements of service delivery and performance, though with less in terms of tighter operational budgets.</p>
<p>“By offering Australian companies solutions that significantly simplify and reduce the complexity and cost associated with IT infrastructure management, Raritan's solutions assist IT managers in addressing these challenges.” Hull said.</p>
<p>Raritan has achieved significant double-digit growth in Australian and New Zealand over the past three years and the outlook remains positive. Raritan Australia also opened a new North Sydney office in March and has expanded the local sales and support teams to include several new appointments.</p>
