|The company is enriching its product categories with new innovative retail products of Microsoft
Westnet (www.mywestnet.com), member of Olympia Group, belonging to the interests of Panos Germanos, announces its partnership with Microsoft, for the distribution of the latter’s consumer products in the markets of Greece, Cyprus and Malta.
This new partnership further strengthens the leading position of Westnet in the market since it:
- Enriches the spectrum of distributed products in the markets which the company already activates in
- Adds new product categories thus covering its customers’ needs
- Expands its activities with regard to new distribution channels
Westnet also strengthens its distribution activities with regard to products in the areas of peripherals and software, with the distribution of mouse products, keyboards, webcams and headsets, as well as of total Microsoft Office solutions. The spectrum of the peripheral products of Microsoft is steadily increasing based on the criteria of ergonomics and modern design. The company’s goal is to cover the needs of both the professional who needs to work with credible professional tools in order to achieve higher productivity independently of the place or the location, as well as the home user, who equally needs flexibility that is offered from the latest and constantly updated versions of the Office. Furthermore, each user is able, based on an annual subscription rate, to have a personal storage space of 1TB in OneDrive, where the user can store any type of file and can access it from everywhere by any appliance, and at any time. Finally, through subscription, the user can take advantage of 60 minutes, free of charge, for Skype calls to fixed lines or mobile phones.
The categories that will be added through the partnership with Microsoft to the product spectrum of Westnet includes Xbox consoles with games, accessories and Xbox Live Gold subscription cards. The new Xbox One S console, since its first circulation last August, has garnered especially positive views, thus increasing its market share month after month, in Greece as well as internationally. Moreover, it is the only console offering the ability for 4K Blu-ray, 4K streaming, and HDR transmission.
In the context of its partnership with Microsoft, Westnet will activate in two new distribution channels. Beginning from January 2017, it will establish a subsidiary in Cyprus in order to more effectively support the local market with its partnerships. In addition, a new distribution channel is now available for Westnet, as the company for the first time will proceed with the digital distribution in the areas of software and gaming, through the distribution of products based on the “Print to receipt” technology. Specifically the interested customers will not have to purchase the physical box of the product and instead they will be able to online activate the product, with the use of a special password which will be collected from the cashier’s desk within the stores.
Robby Bourlas, CEO of Westnet, stated the following: “We proudly announce our partnership with the global technology leader, Microsoft. All of us are aware of the company’s size and of its innovative products which have changed our life. Our new partnership is in line with the strategy of Westnet focusing on the provision of total technology solutions and targeting the increase of competitiveness of an even wider customer base.”
