Northamber boosts T-Mobile’s reach into the SME market

  • New partnership provides resellers with access to T-Mobile’s complete portfolio of products and services
  • Northamber will offer integrated business solutions encompassing IT, data and mobile communications through resellers to the SME market

December 8th 2006, London:  Northamber, one of the longest established trade-only distributors of IT equipment in the UK, today announced that it has become a T-Mobile distribution partner. 

Northamber is widely recognised as one of the largest UK owned trade-only distributors and has a strong track record of success in delivering IT solutions to its 5,000 resellers.  As a new T-Mobile distribution partner, Northamber will significantly enhance its value proposition to existing customers and expand into new markets by providing access to leading mobile communication products and services.

Northamber currently distributes Servers, Storage, Security, Laptop and Desktop PCs, Printers, Software, Networking and Components and the new partnership with T-Mobile will mean that Northamber will be able to cover the IT, data, and mobile communications requirements of the SME market.

“The proven technology from T-Mobile combined with our current product offering, is exactly what our SME focused reseller base is looking for to give them an advantage in today’s competitive marketplace,” said Jared Cary, Product Channel Director, Northamber.  “Many of our resellers are now looking for a one-stop shop to meet the individual IT and communications requirements of their SME customers and access to the T-Mobile solutions will be a key selling point for us.”

“Our partnership with T-Mobile will provide us and our resellers with an additional profit stream. It strengthens existing customer relationships and will also provide significant new business opportunities, allowing us to further expand our offering to the SME community,” continued Jared Cary.

Northamber will focus initially on distributing T-Mobile’s web’n’walk service, namely the HSDPA enabled web’n’walk card which is a natural fit with Northamber’s laptop offering.  The web’n’walk proposition is a significant part of T-Mobile’s overall commitment to providing its business customers with products and services to mobilise their workforces.

Added to this, T-Mobile recently launched HSDPA across its 3G network, the UK’s first truly high speed ‘mobile broadband’ network across the UK, providing speeds of up to 1.8 megabit per second, over four times faster than 3G.

“The partnership with Northamber is an important move for T-Mobile and will significantly boost our presence within the SME market,” said Adrian Williams, Head of Indirect Business Sales at T-Mobile.  “Northamber has an outstanding track record of delivering IT solutions and the strategic partnership will allow us to offer a complete business solution that maps directly onto SMEs requirements.”
