Resellers, integrators thank lucky Y2K stars

Australia's resellers and integrators have breathed a heavy sigh of relief after the Y2K anti-climax left many without the worries of appeasing rafts of customers.

Brad Merrick, managing director of Path Communications, said his customers were "dead quiet" over the new year period, but he's not complaining.

Like many resellers, Merrick said his company faced the prospect of Y2K calls from customers on its books up to five years ago seeking help with old IT products and services.

"There was a hell of a lot of liability lying around out there," he said. "I'm glad it didn't come crashing down on one particular day."

Despite some commentators describing Y2K as a big hoax, Merrick maintains it was a "realistic threat" that deserved the serious treatment it received from the industry.
