ITRealms:

Leading network video operator, Axis Communications, has appointed Interdist Alliances as its authorised distribution partner for all African regions outside of South Africa, reports ITRealms.

Confirming this to ITRealms, the Public Relations and Marketing Manager for Axis, Sasha Bonheim, said that with this agreement, Interdist will distribute the full range of Axis Communications security cameras across these regions.

Bonheim quoted the sales manager for Axis Communications’ South Africa hub, Jason McGregor as saying that Interdist has a focussed African footprint, a solid business and reseller network and a strong technical competence that aligns with Axis’s brand and its African strategy.

“Interdist Alliances will be bringing global best practices and business value to our customers in these regions,” he said, stressing that with quality, reliability and accessibility being key requirements for its operations to maintain the high level of customer service and support expected of the company, expressing the believe they made a good choice in Interdist.

Kris Tierney, General Manager at Interdist said it is their commitment as a value added distributor to help companies like Axis find new opportunities and provide reliable, responsive support making full use of the reach offered through the company’s growing network.

“Interdist Alliances is very excited to announce our new relationship with Axis Communications. We are confident that innovative security solutions, including video surveillance will create a huge new opportunity for our partners who can use their expertise in networking and storage solutions to position the Axis range effectively in many sectors, including retail, property management and the financial sector,” Tierney said.

McGregor adds that this move marks an important milestone for the company globally.

“Africa is most certainly the fastest growing emerging market in the world,” he said, pointing out that the continent has gone through a remarkable decade of economic transformation and has become a very busy place to do business with talk of new investment, new cities, new airports and even new refineries.
"All of these places are going to need to be secured and it’d be remiss of us were we not to find our place amongst the buzz," he said.
