With the new Enterprise Solutions division, Annex Distribution will now actively operate in the server market segment in southern Africa.
“The Enterprise Solutions division is a solid business unit focused on supplying top level computing solutions to small and medium business, together with the IT Reseller as the intermediary, as well as partnering with selected value added resellers, to extend our reach on to large enterprise business and government departments,” says Carel Liebenberg, head of the enterprise solutions division at Annex.
“We do not simply supply products, but offer a complete business solution to our resellers and partner with our resellers to effectively sell the solutions on to their clients, relying on them for implementation and upkeep. We are partnering with our resellers, rather than acting the role as a traditional distributor, playing an incessant role in deal closure.”
Products available through the Enterprise Solutions team include complete built-to-spec machines based on Intel’s server platforms, SSDs, Intel Xeon processors, Intel server and workstation boards, Intel server systems, Intel server chassis, Intel RAID controllers, Intel Ethernet adapters and Intel accessories and spares.
More items include the Seagate’s Constellation, Cheetah and Savvio series enterprise class storage drives, Seagate NAS (network-attached storage) devices, Kingston server memory, Microsoft Server operating systems, Quick Heal security software and Check Point firewall devices.
“Apart from components carried, on Intel servers assembled and tested by us and we offer options including a three year next business day on-site warranty, deployment and implementation assistance as well as nationwide delivery.
“The division kicked off operations in the middle of May 2011, at base level, with the aim at growth being steady, serving as a foundation for long term structuring. The responses by resellers have been encouraging since the division kicked off, and we have high hopes for the future,” says Liebenberg.
