UK partnership to grow reseller base and support drive into colour laser market

Tally, the computer printer specialist, today announced details of its partnership with Micro Peripherals (Micro-P), a leading distributor of IT equipment, colour laser printers and supplies. Micro-P will be providing Tally colour laser printers, spares, and consumables to the UK's business buyers through its extensive dealer base. In recent months, Tally has witnessed tremendous growth in its colour laser business, attributed in part to the recent launch of its unique five-year warranty option.

“Research amongst our core reseller base revealed that Micro-P is a well respected distributor,” says Tally’s General Manager, UK Sales and Marketing, Gary Hunter. “We believe Micro-P will spearhead our assertive move into the colour laser market, complement our efforts to date, and work with us to grow our reseller base for this sector.”

The two companies will work together in utilising a range of recent initiatives introduced by Tally. These include the World’s first five-year warranty on colour lasers, which promises printer users complete peace of mind, as well as initiatives for channel partners to make good margins on colour laser printers and supplies.

Hunter concludes, “Resellers are looking for tools that can help enhance customer relationships, and we know we have the strongest offering. Tally has long-standing relationships with many of its resellers, and the role of the distributors is pivotal here. We are confident that Micro-P’s experience will be instrumental in maintaining the momentum of our colour business, and of other products within the Tally portfolio.”
