Our iCreate Software hits the news again

August 23, 2017

Our iCreate Software is developed exclusively for Westcoast UK and is going from strength to strength. It’s latest release includes an exclusive customised-to-order (CTO) initiative for education-focused channel partners. The configuration tool enables resellers, or their end-user schools, colleges and universities, to design and build their own bespoke HP desktop PCs – and then receive delivery within 48 hours of their order!

The software can be integrated into the website or e-commerce platforms of Westcoast’s partners. Westcoast partners can rebrand the software to fit with their own colour-way and even add in their own services.

Paul Hamilton, Client Director at Westcoast said “It’s a comprehensive, versatile offering iCreate HPFEthat benefits partners, educators and learners.”

Initially, the CTO tool can be used to configure desktop PC systems but Westcoast and HP are planning to add laptops and other products in the short term. The latest release has been picked up by channel press and is set to be a highly utilised tool by Westcoast’s channel partners.

channelcentral at Canalys EMEA

October 7, 2016

canalysEarlier this week channelcentral was fortunate to be part of Canalys Channel Forum EMEA in Barcelona. The event was attended by over 1200 IT Channel professionals from Vendors, Distributors, Resellers and Channel Service Providers.

On Tuesday morning the event was kicked off by Keynote sessions in the main arena from Lenovo, Dell and HP Inc. The Keynote sessions were audience led with a live Q&A. Gianfranco Lanci was up first on stage to discuss the strength of the Lenovo PC business and mentioned how consolidation in the IT Distribution Channel is positive.  Lanci was shortly followed on stage by Michael Dell who spoke tirelessly about being number 1 in the market. Dion Weisler of HP Inc. soon fought back and made it very clear that their message is “Partner First”. Weisler spent much time focussing on the messages of Innovation, the Samsung A3 acquisition and diversity in the workplace.

After a short break it was Antonio Neri’s turn on stage from Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Neri also fought back against Dell and who is number 1 and focussed his message on Channel partners. Neri finished by stating that HPE want to be the IT in the ‘Internet of Things’.

The Keynote sessions were closed with Edwin Paalvast of Cisco who echoed Lanci’s message on consolidation in the IT Distribution Channel being a positive move.

The greatest feature of the Canalys event is the one-to-one meeting sessions where Partners have the opportunity to meet face to face, form new business relationships and plan for the year ahead. It was a pleasure for channelcentral to meet many customers there.

Steve Brazier of Canalys wrapped up Day 1 with some interesting industry statistics and his outlook for the future.

A spectacular Gala Dinner took place outside of the city on Tuesday evening which provided another great opportunity for networking, followed by a Sunrise run on Wednesday morning. The final day was packed full of more one-to-one meeting sessions, theatre sessions and a closing note from Canalys.

A great event to celebrate the IT Channel. We hope to see you next year in Venice!

A successful show at GPC 2016 in Boston

September 16, 2016

HP Inc and Hewlett Packard Enterprise wrapped up a very successful GPC conference in Boston this week.

20160913_120957channelcentral.net was proud to be a Networking Sponsor for the event. The HP Inc. and HPE partner community are strong adopters of the channelcentral.net-developed iQuote tool, and the GPC conference gave channelcentral.net the opportunity to highlight a number of new features within the tool. Among the new features unveiled at GPC were a number of new “Product Finder” filter features for hardware, software, and options; an enhanced user experience that gives more control and preference of view for the user, and the integration of HP Financial Services (HPFS) payment terms so users of the tool can instantly determine the finance options and payments for their purchases. The iQuote product was presented in both the HP Inc. and HPE showcase areas, and throughout the sponsor area by channelcentral.net Client Directors Terry Knott and Tod Johnson. Feedback from HP Inc. and HPE partners and Distributors was very positive, and expectations are that the trajectory of iQuote use will accelerate even faster as the new platform is released.

20160912_091044The GPC event itself was started off as HP Inc. took to the stage on the morning of the opening day by creating a “rave” atmosphere complete with an opening musical act that caught the attention of the senses (and eardrums!) of all attendees. HP Inc. CEO Dion Weisler did a remarkable job of keeping the energy high throughout the 2-plus hour opening session, and highlighted some A3 printer products that have been in the works for some time and ultimately resulted in the HP Inc. acquisition of Samsung’s printer division. How often do you hear an acquisition announcement *and* see their product line-up at the same time!? A great way to start the event for sure. On Day 2, Meg Whitman and the HPE team had their work cut out given the energy HP Inc. injected into the audience; and the speed-themed, “make money” message kept pace quite well with HP Inc. Both the HP Inc. and HPE Showcase areas were busy throughout the show (as was channelcentral.net within the showcase area), and a failed guerrilla marketing attempt by Dell/EMC appeared to lead to an even greater focus on HP Inc. and HPE’s messaging and capabilities to deliver products, solutions, and services via their #1 rated partner network.

We would like to thank our customers that spent time with us throughout this year’s Conference and we would also like to extend that thanks to HP Inc. and HPE for having us there as sponsors.
