Westcon Group Announces Exclusive Distribution Agreement with Easynet

David Grant, Vice President and General Manager, Westcon Convergence, commented: “Services are an integral part of a convergence-oriented value proposition. With the UK’s second largest network, Easynet will help us to open up new business opportunities and deliver a greater solution sale opportunity for our customers, carrying with it greater margin opportunities.”

“Westcon and Easynet share a common philosophy in that we really take time to understand our channel partners and work with them to achieve their business goals,” added Alan Ryan, global alliances director of Easynet. “We are very pleased to start providing services to the channel through Westcon and with our combined experience and expertise we can make a very positive impact to the channel.”

Charles Whelpton, Director of Redwood, a U.K.-based reseller, said: “At Redwood, we like to work with the best of breed suppliers such as Avaya. We feel that Easynet has one of the highest quality IP networks in the UK and Europe and therefore provides a complementary service within our portfolio of convergence solutions.
