Comments Anamika Budree, HP PSG Business Unit Manager at DCC: "The HP PSG business unit has experienced significant growth and success which warranted another resource to assist with increasing reporting, stock, liaison, pricing and product requirements. Botha has augmented the division with his distribution and product experience and is instrumental in maintaining our high service levels.
"In addition, Botha's appointment provides our resellers with that peace of mind that they now have a focussed asset at their distributor that has the operational and relationship insight and is abreast of the latest products and advances in technology that will in turn benefit their own implementations.
"In turn it also strengthens the division's business efforts, ensuring that we can service our resellers in a timeous manner, fortified by the availability of the newest stock from HP," she adds.
Looking into the near future, Budree believes the PSG product manager role will see DCC keeping trend with technology's increasingly prevalent and personal role in our lives. "Research shows that technology has become a family activity; it is a very personal enabler and as a distributor we have to ensure that we can provide the products and services to our resellers that will enable them to stay ahead of this adoption curve and technology's ongoing entrenchment in our lives," she says.
