Fujitsu Technology Solutions
Munich, March 21, 2013
Fujitsu drives value added business through its new value channel initiative – now named Fujitsu SELECT Circle – by welcoming 100 qualified members from across Europe to a two-day kickoff event at its production facilities in Augsburg, Germany. Following its successful launch at Fujitsu Forum in November 2012, the ‘invitation only’ SELECT Circle initiative addresses enterprise resellers, value resellers and systems integrators in particular, enabling them to capitalize on data center, storage, solutions and cloud opportunities in key regions, and particularly in the midmarket enterprise segment.
Fujitsu is now working with SELECT Circle members to enable them to provide better customer service resulting in longer-term client relationships, via customized skills development, support and mentoring, and lead-generation resources. The initiative will focus on key products and solutions that channel partners believe lead to value business, such as the innovative Fujitsu vShape Virtualization Solution, ETERNUS CS800 Data Protection Appliance, Cluster-in-a-Box, or SAP HANA appliances.
Already available in Austria, France, Germany and Spain, Fujitsu SELECT Circle will roll out across Europe, Middle East and Africa during 2013.
