Interesting story from The Register that Microsoft was considering ditching one of it’s three broadline general disties, Bell Micro, Ingram and C2K.

… and we know that Microsoft have brought on Westcoast as a new distributor and we know a certain lady who is very close to our hearts who has joined them to lead the charge!

So, there is some interesting stuff going on and it seems Microsoft has been trying to give a bit of a kick up the arse to its disties. We’ve all had our “interesting” experiences with distributors and we all know that if you’re a small business then you get a pretty raw deal by many! Having said that, I work with an amazing IBM distributor called Avnet who have amazing people. Incredible how they’ve supported iQubed.
