Lexel Systems adds Portables Plus IT customers
Portables Plus exits IT; enter Lexel
Auckland, 24 July 2009 - Auckland IT infrastructure solutions provider Lexel is taking on Portables Plus IT customers as the one-time laptop specialist focuses on building its four Digital Mobile franchises.
Portables Plus managing director Tony Fitzgerald says the recent spotlight on 3G had spurred new interest in mobile devices and was behind the decision to pull back from traditional IT.
"With handheld devices redefining the centre of the digital universe we're putting all our energy behind our Digital Mobile franchises. We're very excited about the success and growth of Digital Mobile, especially the new Vodafone services, and this is where we have to focus," Fitzgerald says.
Lexel CEO Noel Simpson says the agreement adds a variety of SMB and education accounts to its customer portfolio. The handover also adds one former Portables Plus staff member to Lexel's sales ranks.
"We've got big growth ambitions and this agreement is another step in that direction. We're now talking to those customers, putting names to faces and getting them up to speed with our offerings," Simpson says.
