  • Compaq reauthorising Internet resellers

    Compaq has devised guidelines that its US-based Internet distributors must follow in order to sell the vendor's Presario consumer PCs online. The vendor is also expected to re-establish that US sales channel, which was halted in February. However, Ben Reeve, Compaq Australia's manager, segment and channel marketing, denied that Compaq's US online strategy will have any Australian impact. "There are no plans for Compaq to adopt this policy in Australia," Reeve said.
