IQ partners with MicroWorld and Dubai Technology
Strong distributor network to provide Huawei mobiles with competitive edge
Informatica Qatar (iQ), an IT consulting firm and technology solutions provider, has added MicroWorld and Dubai Technology to its growing list of exclusive local distributors for Huawei's mobile devices.
The deal comes in the wake of Huawei's recent strategy that saw the China-based vendor partner with iQ to distribute and provide after-sales service for the Huawei IDEOS and IDEOS X5 handsets in Qatar.
"MicroWorld and Dubai Technology are important to bringing Huawei's products to Qatar's mass market. So far we have been building up a distinguished network of local partners who have the capability, reputation and market reach to distribute Huawei products, and these two establishments reflect the success of our efforts. We are eyeing more strategic alliances to capitalise on Qatar's thriving mobile market and position Huawei as one of its most trusted brands," said Wisam Costandi, general manager, Informatica Qatar.
Informatica Qatar is an important partner of Huawei and offers end-to-end ICT and telecom solutions, and after-sales support via its iQ Solutions and iQ Devices business units. The company recently recruited hypermarkets operator Safari and mobile phone retailer Sky Net to ramp up its Huawei distributorship in the Gulf state. With mobile handset sales expected to reach QR 295 million by 2014, iQ is hoping its vast and reliable distributor channels to provide upcoming Huawei products with a solid market edge.
