At a Hewlett-Packard Co. (HP) channel conference held in Malta last week, Tarsus Technologies (Pty) Ltd. was presented with HP's award for the best regional partner amongst distributors for the International Sales Europe (ISE) South region. The ISE South region incorporates the whole of Africa, the Middle East, Greece and Turkey.
Guy Whitcroft, MD, Tarsus Technologies, says that Tarsus is thrilled with this award. "Our HP business has done extremely well, with growth well above market average in spite of strong competition in the market, and new entrants too," he adds.
Thierry Boulanger, commercial and enterprise channel manager at HP SA, says that this award is purely performance-based, and that approximately 40 other distributors were in the running for this award.
"Tarsus, however, came out as the best performer across all of our business units in the ISE South region, for the first half of our 2004 financial year, which runs between November 2003 and April 2004."
"We are very pleased that the continued growth Tarsus is experiencing with its HP business has been recognized in this way, and we are committed to maintaining that growth, and remaining the major HP distributor in the territory," Whitcroft concludes.
