Avnet grabs gold status with Fujitsu Services

by Stuart Wilson, Thursday 26 June 2008

Avnet Technology Solution (ATS) has been awarded gold distributor status by Fujitsu Services. The elevated status is the highest available in Fujitsu’s supplier management programme and is based on ATS meeting stringent performance and legislative criteria. ATS is one of six gold distributors in the Fujitsu Services’ supplier management programme.

The new programme enables suppliers to benefit from regular technology and strategy briefings from Fujitsu. To be accepted into the programme, suppliers must comply with corporate and social responsibility requirements. They must also adhere to quality operations and business standards that are assessed and regularly reviewed by Fujitsu Services to ensure continuity of service delivery.

“We are delighted with this recognition from Fujitsu Services,” said Matthew Gower, vice president of sales UK, Ireland and Nordic at Avnet Technology Solutions. “We have long invested in people and processes to ensure that we provide technical products that are supported by the highest standards of business operations and service delivery.”

“Working with Fujitsu Services both on a strategic business level and with their technical community ensures that we keep our finger on the pulse to be a trusted business partner that continues to support Fujitsu’s business aims and ethos,” Gower added.

The Fujitsu Services Supplier Management Programme claims that it is a collaborative approach to working with suppliers, both on delivering exceptional solutions to customers and supporting the long-term business growth of both companies.

Avnet, which supplies both Sun Microsystems and IBM equipment to Fujitsu Services, has demonstrated the commitment and trust required to work at the highest level as a gold distributor, according to Fujitsu. Fujitsu Services manages suppliers in the programme with a strict criteria and scorecard mechanism that identifies status level and assesses business risk.

With an annual turnover of €3.59 billion, Fujitsu Services employs over 19,000 people across 20 countries. Headquartered in London, Fujitsu Services is the European IT services arm of the US$43.2 billion (€32.5 billion) Fujitsu Group.
