Westpac has named Eagle Technology its preferred vendor for supplying Sun technology and services, after a tender process.
Eagle has been a Sun reseller for 15 years. Eagle CEO Gary Langford says when Solnet went into liquidation in February six of its technical people joined Eagle and the company now has a dedicated Sun resource of 15 people and around 170 staff in total.
Ties between Sun and Solnet were cut in November over financial issues, and Eagle announced in December it was establishing a new business unit to sell Sun products.
Earlier, former Solnet shareholder and sales executive John Hanna joined Computerland to form an enterprise team to resell Sun.
Langford says that between 10% and 20% of Eagle’s revenue is now derived from Sun products and services.
