After 17 years in the distribution game, desktop scanning and imaging distributors Performance Sales is set to be placed in the hands of administrators early next week.
The distributor, which had relationships with channel companies throughout Australia and representation in New Zealand and Papua New Guinea, was a specialist provider of digital imaging software and media software.
While their specialist nature led to only limited contact with their channel partners, resellers such as Berlin Wall's Rob Beaumont have expressed regret at the company's demise.
"It is a real shame, they were really good guys to work with," Beaumont said.
Richard Bates, managing director of Adelaide based Scan Conversion Services, is similarly disappointed.
"Our dealings with Performance Sales have always been excellent," Bates said.
Although Bates said there had been no indication of any problems with the distributor, he was not surprised by the result, commenting that changing cost pressures on the distribution channel was going to lead to the demise of many distributors.
Performance Sales staff confirmed the demise of the company, however were unable to provide any comment at this stage.
