Cyclone has inked a deal with Acer which will see it providing the vendor's full product suite to All of Government participating agencies.

The deal includes Travelmate notebooks, modular and all-in-one Veriton desktops, monitors and Switch tablets and provides Cyclone with a wider range to offer to schools, tertiary institutions and agencies, via the All of Government procurement process.

Cyclone was already providing Acer's Chromebook range as part of its All of Government offering. The company is an IT hardware supplier and value added services provider via the AOG.

Cameron Anderson, Acer Computer New Zealand country manager, says having the full range of Acer offerings available via Cyclone will provide greater customer choice with a ‘very competitive' pricing structure.

“The latest range of Travelmate and Switch products will challenge the traditional vendors occupying these markets,” Anderson says.

“Providing technology solutions via Cyclone with full pre- and after-sales support and integration is important to ensure maximum benefits are gained from these exciting new devices.

Graham Prentice, Cyclone All of Government general manager, says having the ability to directly supply the Acer family of computers is ‘a strong addition' to its current All of Government portfolio.

“The addition of Acer as a strategic vendor provides wider choice around computer option – a preferred option for all,” Prentice says.
