“The Apple Consultant Network (ACN), which already exists in the North America, is made up of a selected group of Apple certified resellers and IT partners, which will be able to provide implementation services and advice to business and consumer customers,” Lui reports. “Clients can explore the list of ACN members through an online portal, which categorises them by locations and capabilities ranging from home users to enterprise.”
“The list includes seven partners so far: Computers Now, Digistor, gizmo, Key Options Technology, Kytec Group, Renaissance, Winthrop and XciteLogic,” Lui reports.
“Winthrop general manager, Cedric Celestine, said the launch of an official reseller program would level the playing field for Apple service providers. Previously, Apple worked with partners on a more ad-hoc basis,” Lui reports. “Celestine is expecting the new network will help boost its Apple business by 20-30 per cent. Perth-based IT service provider, Kytec, saw the new program as a win-win for both vendor and partners.”
Lui reports, “The new partners network is also expected to help Apple better penetrate the enterprise space.”
