Microsoft has expanded the reach of its Surface Hub audiovisual (AV) display by appointing Westcon-Comstor as a UK distributor.
The Surface Hub launched in the UK last year, following some delay, and had until recently been available only through specialist AV partners.
Ryan Asdourian, Microsoft's Windows and Surface lead in the UK, said: "The addition of the Surface Hub to Westcon-Comstor's portfolio will ensure that they are able to offer the VAR community the best possible collaboration solutions for customers throughout the UK and Ireland.
"We have been delighted with the reaction to the Surface Hub since it was first introduced to the UK market in 2016 and the addition of Westcon-Comstor as a distributor, combined with its strong portfolio of wraparound services such as Skype for Business, will ensure that even more organisations are able to transform the way their employees collaborate, share and communicate."
Westcon-Comstor becomes the Surface Hub's second distributor in the UK, joining Tech Data's AV specialist Maverick.
The Microsoft Surface Hub partner base in the UK includes Insight, Computacenter, Misco and SCC
Wayne Mason, EMEA unified comms general manager at Westcon-Comstor, added: "We are focused on providing organisations with the best possible collaboration tools to ensure employees are able to work together more easily and effectively.
"The Microsoft Surface Hub absolutely ticks the box both from a technology perspective and in the culture of collaboration it creates. With our ability to wrap additional services around the Surface Hub and a comprehensive portfolio of complementary solutions for Skype for Business we are creating a very strong offer for the VAR community."
