Epson recently named Tarsus Technologies as its latest Tier 1 distributor. With the distribution deal in place, Tarsus Technologies will be distributing a range of Epson products across South Africa.
“Advanced Channel Technologies (A.C.T), an Epson consumables distributor for many years, merged with Tarsus Technologies in March this year. Appointing Tarsus was a natural step for us and I am sure that it will make a significant difference to our channel with its outstanding distribution track record and Southern African footprint,” said Epson general manager, Kelvin Reynolds. “I’m also confident that Epson will have an equally positive effect on Tarsus’s business in the years to come. We’re very excited to have Tarsus as our newest distributor in South Africa and I’d like to welcome them to the Epson family”
In addition to the Epson distribution deal, Tarsus currently distributes a range of products to African countries, including: Zambia, Namibia, and Mozambique.
“Epson is recognised as a household brand in the printer business,” says Gary Pickford, sales director at Tarsus. ”We also see it offering premier products in the scanner, projector and POS printer markets, which are all products that our reseller channel is very comfortable with. Furthermore, Tarsus also has a solid reputation of servicing the corporate and government sectors with relevant products for their business through our channel, and Epson products are highly relevant for these sectors.”
“In addition, Tarsus is uniquely positioned to meet the channel’s needs for credit funding, stock availability and efficient logistics to ensure that resellers are able to deliver the best possible service, support and overall solutions to their end user customer base, at the lowest possible cost. The Epson products that we have added to our stable will be serviced in the same manner,” concluded Reynolds.
