Fast-growing VAR acs has secured coveted Apple Authorised Reseller status.
The Northampton-headquartered firm has passed the stringent tests needed to gain the certification including strengthening its technical skills and expertise on the full range of Apple’s products.
Dan Harding, IT sales director at acs, said: “We pride ourselves on listening to our customers and the message was clear; our customers wanted more choice and the option to use Apple products in their workplace.
“It’s easy to see the benefits of Apple’s products when you use them, however we found that some businesses had concerns about integrating Apple products into their existing network. We hope to change that and show our customers that they really can have the best of both worlds,” he said.
Jon Thorpe (pictured), joint managing director of acs, added, “Becoming an Apple Authorised Reseller is a fantastic achievement for the team. In conjunction with our existing high-level partnerships with HP, Dell, VMware and Microsoft, it demonstrates our commitment to give our customers what they want with impartial advice and best-value solutions all supported by an experienced team of service professionals.”
The news comes hot on the heels of Apple’s latest results, which saw the IT giant post a 71 per cent increase in year-on-year quarterly revenues.
