Logicom adds HP Services to enterprise portfolio
Distributor teams up with HP TS division as a services contractual distribution partner
Regional distributor Logicom Dubai has announced that it has added HP Services to its Enterprise Group portfolio.
Under the accord, which came into effect from February 2014, Logicom has officially been granted the HP Services Contract Specialist Distribution Partner (SCSP-D) rights for the UAE, with plans to expand to Oman in the near future.
In addition, the agreement with HP TS sees Logicom extend the division's offerings as a services contractual distribution partner. The distributor will be able to support all HP's tier two partners in the sale of upfront and post warranty Care Pack Services, Installation Services and Lifecycle Event Services, HP Education Services and Contractual Ssupport for HP servers, storage, networking and software products including renewals, multi-year and conversions.
According to Logicom, the partnership enables it to provide full HP services portfolio, complementing its existing HP Enterprise Group product array and further strengthening its partner offering and value add proposition.
Sajith Raj, general manager at Logicom, said: "IT solutions are becoming more complex, and more customers are moving towards vendor managed services to help them reduce operating costs, automate their business process and ensure they are compliant. By adding HP Services to the Logicom portfolio, we can now guarantee our customers a complete value-added solution within the HP enterprise segment. This will enable the company to stay ahead of the competition and remain aligned with our 2014 expansion plans."
Eyad Shihabi, managing director, HP Middle East, stated: "In the new IT world where our customers are operating 24x7 and demanding solutions that are always on, it is becoming imperative to include value add support services that will keep our customers' data centres running uninterrupted. We are delighted to have Logicom join our Technical Support Services partner community and help HP expand into areas not previously covered."
Logicom's current HP Enterprise Group product array includes networking, servers and storage solutions.
