Time for a quick recap of the story so far. In June 2009, the merger of the Mac Technology Association and the PCA was announced and by September the effective combining of the two organisations was complete in all but one aspect ? our websites. There was simply too much Mac-channel specific information on the MTA website to allow us to turn it off.

The end of an era

At the time of writing, the Mac Technology Association website was just about to enter retirement. Visitors will now be redirected briefly to a holding page on the TCA website explaining the merger, before being switched through to the TCA home page.

But there is still one aspect of the MTA’s website services that remains unresolved – the Mac Reseller Directory, which was the single most visited, supported and respected feature of the site. Hopefully this will not remain unresolved for too long. I’m pleased to announce that we have been working on plans with Conjungo, the world’s only independent technology information and reseller search platform, to create a bigger, better Mac channel reseller directory powered by their excellent database and search engine technology.

For those of you who haven’t spotted Conjungo yet, they are the company who are compiling the UK’s most complete, searchable database directory resource of ICT resellers, suppliers, consultants and VARs. They then profile and structure this information to build searchable online dealer lists for end users to find their locally accredited and specialist resellers for vendors like Symantec, Citrix, Adobe, Cisco, Motorola, Wyse, Mamut, SMC, O2 and many others. A large number of Apple resellers are already listed and featured on Conjungo, and will therefore automatically appear in the new Apple Reseller Directory.

Not only will the Mac-channel benefit from this new enhanced directory, they will also benefit from inclusion within Conjungo and the substantially growing reach they are achieving into many business and end user markets. So if you’re a reseller who isn’t already on there, we’d recommend that you take a look at this resource very soon.
