UMPC specialist, Tegatech, has announced a partnership with Korean brand, Viliv, as it continues to broaden its vendor portfolio.
Viliv products are notable for their built in GPS and sub 7-inch screens.
Tegatech principal, Hugo Ortega, said he expected the product line would sell well in the distributor’s key mobile workforce vertical.
“We’ve already sold 250 and ordered another 100 in the four months that we’ve been building the partnership,” Ortega said. “We’re targeting in excess of 600 this year.”
Despite this, Ortega claimed the partnership was not one that would upset other vendors on Tegatech’s books.
“There is a little overlap, but there’s still no one best product for customers across the board,” he said. “We find that offering a large product array appeals to customers in this space, who might have very different requirements from one another.”
Tegatech has exclusive rights to Viliv and will also take the product to the European market through its new branch office in Kosovo.
Still on the hunt for more vendors to represent, Ortega said he was in discussions with a further two vendors, with formal partnerships to be announced later this year.
It has been a busy year for Tegatech, which formed new partnerships with vendors including TwinHead, and Kohjinsha. It also made its first foray into the desktop space with Ruvo, and began offering MoneyTech financing to resellers.
