Background: Following the acquisition of Tech Data's components and enterprise business last year, Aptec has reaffirmed itself as a formidable IT distribution house.

With TDME now added to the stable - and overseeing key franchises with vendors such as Cisco, Oracle and Western Digital - the Aptec group boasts over 500 employees, and almost 70% of them are in distribution functions.

Enhancements to its online systems, including the automation of quote tracking and sales orders, have strengthened Aptec's relationship with partners.

2008 strategy: Having attracted an investment fund and restructured the company financially last year, Aptec is in a strong position to reach its corporate objectives this year. The signings of Adobe, ISS, NetApp and Secure Computing during the past year also indicate the direction Aptec is going.
