Fast pace set to continue for Connector Systems

06 Jul 12

Winter might be cold but the pace is hot at tech distributor Connector Systems. Maintaining high velocity throughout 2012, it has added further vendors and personnel to its stables as it seeks to provide resellers with more choices to solve business challenges. And, says MD Dale Smith, there is more to come in the latter half of the year.

Through June, the company added storage vendors Imation and ExaGrid, while also picking up the rights to distribute thin client solutions from IGEL. Backing its products with personnel, Connector Systems has appointed Jonny Baird as Christchurch-based business development manager for the South Island. View his LinkedIn profile here.

Smith confirms the company’s trajectory: “It’s been a fast paced first 6 months of 2012. We’ve added a number of new vendors to our portfolio, broadening the offering to our resellers, while extending our reach with the acquisition of Techplus,” he says.

The market can expect more, as Smith hints at an expansion plan which is still gathering momentum “As we launch into the second half of the year, we look forward to amping it up even further and continuing to offer our resellers high level brands and service,” he states.

Training and incentives – July
Smith adds that Connector Systems has a consistent focus on continued training and up skilling for its reseller network; it is also incentivising resellers to add Imation and ExaGrid to their solution offerings with special introductory deals.

In terms of training, DELL SonicWALL sessions are taking place in Wellington on 24 and 25 July; click here to register or contact Kevin for more information.

Through the rest of 2012, Connector Systems’ resellers can access networking gear at substantial discounts under the Brocade Stackable Access Program, with savings of 30-50% on selected switches. Contact Clint for more information.

Finally, Connector Systems is attending the Electrical Contractors Association of New Zealand Annual Trade Show in Christchurch on July 19th.
