The purpose of the deal is to offer the PCRN community full access to all of the benefits offered through Synaxon membership.
“We already had a handful of independent retailers from the PCRN community on board with Synaxon, this deal simply formalises the process to on-boarding and offers PCRN members the benefits of Synaxon membership,” said Derek Jones, MD at Synaxon UK.
PCRN is a UK-wide group of established and independent ‘bricks-and -mortar’ PC and laptop specialists offering repairs, servicing and advice to businesses and home users in their local area.
As well as break-fix repairs and maintenance they can carry out virus removals and many also offer remote support services.
Phil Barnfield, managing director of PC Clinic Technologies and a spokesperson and community member of the PCRN, added: “This is great news for the PCRN community. I have been a member of Synaxon for the past six months and the service and support has been excellent. One of the main drivers for this new collaboration is easy access to the F-Secure portal from within Synaxon’s EGIS platform. This means that all of the PCRN community can now enjoy ease of access, simplified purchasing and improved pricing around the full F-Secure range.”
