The software giant has given VIP Authorised Distributor accreditation, after 18 months of working with the distributor to expand its OEM software sales and customer breadth. The most significant result of the certification is the fact that VIP will be stocking Microsoft OEM software in the New Year.
“We are delighted to have been awarded Authorised Distributor status by Microsoft and look forward to working in even closer partnership with them in the future,” said Duncan McAuley, purchasing director at VIP. “With the release of Vista just around the corner, this accreditation will provide many valuable new sales opportunities for our software resellers who also will benefit from improved pricing, range of products and services. VIP welcomes the chance to further facilitate communications between Microsoft and our resellers, helping them understand how Microsoft can help grow their business.”
