Bracknell, UK — Avnet Technology Solutions, the global IT solutions distribution and an operating group of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), has launched the Altitude program in the UK aimed at promoting EMC storage and back-up devices designed for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). The initiative benefits new and existing Avnet business partners reselling EMC’s range of resilient VNXe storage solutions and Data Domain back-up products.
Avnet’s new Altitude programme consists of an online configuration tool that business partners can use to calculate pricing for EMC products without the need to contact either Avnet or EMC. Accessible via a secure portal, the configurator saves valuable time when preparing quotes and is available 24×7. For example, if an Avnet business partner is with a customer who requests a price for a device to store data in a remote office, the partner can provide this by simply logging onto Avnet’s Altitude portal to get a quote.
