Brisbane-based IT services and procurement company NetOptions has been recognised by Hewlett-Packard for its commitment to selling warranties with its goods.
Hewlett-Packard named NetOptions its best Carepaq warranty reseller in the Asia-Pacific region due its proficiency at selling additional warranties with PCs and notebooks.
NetOptions managing director Richard McAlary was quite surprised by the award, saying that he considers selling warranties as part and parcel of being a good reseller. "HP/Compaq is trying to get more of the channel selling warranty packs," he said. "But at NetOptions, we bundle them with everything we sell. Nothing goes out the door without it."
McAlary said the prize involved a substantial cash bonus which is being shared among NetOptions staff.
