Rectron is excited to announce the addition of Lenovo Data Centre Group (DCG) to its datacentre solutions portfolio.

According to a statement released to the media, the agreement comes hot on the heels of an alliance established with Lenovo’s mobile business.

Rectron believes today’s economy requires datacentres to keep up with the rapid rate of business change and innovation and that technologies should improve agility and remove bottlenecks to new opportunities.

The company affirms that its alliance with Lenovo DCG helps it to deliver on this vision.

Michael Finch, Rectron’s Datacentre Business Unit Manager, says, “As a tier 1 global brand committed to the IT channel, Lenovo is a perfect fit for Rectron and the direction in which the company is moving. My vision is to build long lasting relationships between Rectron and its customers, by providing technical expertise to the channel through our datacentre product management and presales teams. I believe that this agreement with Lenovo DCG will help turn that vision into a reality, so that our clients can deliver world-class solutions and generate new revenue opportunities for themselves and their customers.”

The companies claim that Finch brings 11 years of distribution experience to the project, with eight of those years focussed on tier 1 Enterprise products and solutions. Over the last 10 years, Finch has worked for and with resellers that focus on enterprise solutions and has assisted in the delivery of those solutions to a wide range of Southern African organisations.

Finch adds: “My vision is to build long lasting relationships between Rectron and its customers, by providing technical expertise to the channel through our datacentre product management and presales teams. I believe that this agreement with Lenovo DCG will help turn that vision into a reality, and will boost our ability to make complex solutions and technologies easily available to the market, so that our clients can deliver world-class solutions and generate new revenue opportunities for themselves and their customers.”

Jim Holland, Lenovo Data Center Group Country Manager, says, “We believe that Rectron as an organisation would not only be able to introduce our brand to a unique reseller base, but also ensure that the customer is prioritised. When going to market, Lenovo DCG would be Rectron’s primary Tier 1 enterprise product supplier; allow them to provide us with the focus, attention and investment that we require. We are very excited about this partnership and what it can deliver for both our organisations.”

The partnership allows for improved products and services for Rectron in several key areas including enterprise hardware, business solutions, and Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI).
