We are very pleased to announce that Microsoft New Zealand has this week introduced its Surface portfolio to our local business channel via three partners. Effective from the 1st October 2013, the resellers which will stock the Surface portfolio are New Era, Cyclone Computers and Telco Technology Services (TTS).

In addition to offering Microsoft's extended warranty and accidental damage, resellers bring a variety of value-added services to the Surface family such as asset tagging, custom imaging, kitting, onsite service and support, device recycling, and data protection.

"The addition of these authorised resellers is a continuation of Microsoft's devices-and-services strategy, and extends our Surface family of devices, enabled by cloud services, to more organisations," says Brent Kendrick, Director of Small and Mid-size Business and Partner Group, Microsoft New Zealand. "We look forward to working closely with these partners to better serve their commercial customers. As we move quickly into future phases of this program, we will activate more partners to sell Surface devices."
