Distribution Central has launched a new business unit, ViViD Systems, specialising in the distribution of voice, video and data solutions.
The distributor will merge its current business units, NetWorld Systems and Unity Systems, and their respective vendor portfolios to form ViViD Systems.
The division will be led by Distribution Central Asia-Pacific general manager, Andrew Assad, who formerly managed NetWorld Systems for more than five years.
Its Asia-Pacific Unity Systems general manager, Steve Jones, will switch his focus and lead SAN Systems, Distribution Central’s data storage and management business unit.
According to Distribution Central managing director, Nick Verykios, the company made the move as it was responding to the consolidation of communications and data solutions into a single deployment strategy in the current market.
“ViViD Systems will better support our vendor partners such as Avaya, which has recently acquired both data and video solutions, and also provide channel support services to our reseller partners that are more integrated and strategic, in line with this consolidating vendor market,” he said.
Verykios also mentioned that it deliberately chose to represent emerging technologies in the collaborative communications and networking space.
“While our vendors continue to consolidate technologies through organic R&D as well as mergers and acquisitions, we aim to provide cross technology expertise, while answering the strategic requirement of a single solution for collaborative communications over fixed wired and mobile, local and remote access methods and the support of application and networks through optimised infrastructure,” he added.
ViViD Systems will deliver all the channel support services that NetWorld Systems and Unity Systems have provided – including pre-sales technical support, post-sales field support, configuration, renewal and asset management, training and education programs, and channel marketing programs.
