KYOCERA takes on Exertis as first new distributor partner in 10 years

KYOCERA Document Solutions UK (KDUK) has renewed its commitment to the office print market with the appointment of Exertis as its first new distribution partner in more than ten years.

The agreement, which will see Exertis distribute KYOCERA’s hardware, software and apps, expands on an existing relationship in which Exertis has supplied genuine KYOCERA consumables since 2004.

It marks another pivotal development for KYOCERA in the UK, following the successful integration of Annodata and MCL, and the subsequent launch of a range of new service offerings aimed at meeting the demands of businesses and creating new revenue opportunities for partners.

Rod Barthet, CEO KDUK and Annodata, said: “As some of our competitors abandon this market, we’re proud to be increasing our commitment and, once again, investing in the channel to help us to achieve our ambitions. Our strategy and vision is to build on our core values and significantly increase the service proposition that partners have come to know us for, while bringing added value to them wherever possible.

“Adding Exertis to the distribution portfolio does exactly that, giving partners further choice in terms of service levels, value-add, price and commercial agreements.”

“We are pleased to add KYOCERA to our portfolio. It provides our resellers with an excellent range of products that are renowned for their quality, reliability and low total cost of ownership. Their document management solutions bring innovation and increased productivity to SMB and enterprise office environments by automating the workflow and capturing documents efficiently and securely,” said Alistair Coyne, Exertis, general manager, print.

“With our dedicated print team and value-added services, we look forward to growing the KYOCERA opportunity with our extensive reseller network.”
