Datacentrix advances Lenovo certification
ICT solutions provider Datacentrix has extended its partnership with hardware technology company, Lenovo, adding the title of Authorised Service Partner (ASP) to its existing Tier 1 Platinum Partner certifications for Lenovo’s PC Group (PCG) and Datacentre Group (DCG).
According to a statement from Datacentrix, the development positions it as one of only two South African Tier 1 Platinum Partners to also be named as an ASP.
Shawn Marx, Datacentrix business unit manager for Converged Solutions, said, “Datacentrix has enjoyed a close working relationship with Lenovo in South Africa for many years, and it was a natural next step for us to add the ASP certification to our existing qualifications. The new accreditation allows us to deepen client interactions, providing local businesses with an end-to-end Lenovo offering – from presales right through to break/fix services.”
Datacentrix added in its statement that it is focused on strengthening its skills based during the country’s lockdown period, and completed over 630 vendor-related certifications since the end of March to mid-May, including the Lenovo ASP accreditation.
“… by using this time to upskill within lockdown, we have completed the requisite training to position ourselves as trusted advisors and create Lenovo customers for life,” Marx adds.
Greg Pothitos, DCG channel sales manager at Lenovo, added: “As a company that already holds the ambitious Tier 1 Platinum Partner status, the addition of the ASP title to Datacentrix’ battery will allow them to provide the complete Lenovo ecosystem. Lenovo is very pleased to welcome Datacentrix to the local ASP fold.”
