DELL, through its local distributor Netcom Computer House, yesterday held a networking session for its partners and customers during a hi-tea session at All Seasons Restaurant in Times Square.
Present were General Manager for Asia Pacific, Mir Saadat Ali; Managing Director of Netcom, Vincent Goh and the management from Dell and Netcom.
Mir Saadat Ali said that he has around 15 countries to manage as the general manager for Asia Pacific region including Brunei, Nepal, Fiji and Papua New Guinea, adding that they are part of the Southeast Asia developing group. He also highlighted that Dell already has a very solid presence in Brunei and is a major player in the corporate sector.
“I’ve divided the market into three segments, out of which two are considered major by most. The first is commercial business or corporate customers,” said Mir Saadat Ali, adding, “We are already leading in the corporate sector as all major government organisations are mostly working on Dell servers, PCs and notebooks. Recently, we also won a long-term contract from a government agency.”
Secondly, on the commercial sector, he said, Dell is also providing prompt support here as it has agreements with local distributors.
“On the consumer side, we are growing rapidly in Brunei. We have a lot of our retailers here committed to work together with our distributor.” Netcom and Blister are partners for the distributor.
“From Dell’s prospective, they are committed to grow the business together with their partners, and in my region, there are partners who have been with us for the last 17 years,” he added.
The networking session served as a gesture of appreciation to both the partners and consumers for their support, while also taking the chance to shed light on Dell’s products.
Following the hi-tea, they were treated to a movie at Times Cineplex.
