WStore, the leading online supplier of business IT equipment, has today launched a dedicated Computer Associates store within the WStore site. Last month, WStore received an award from Computer Associates – the Largest Growth Reseller Account for 2003 - after increasing sales of its products by 200%.

The development of the Computer Associates store reinforces the commitment between the two companies and paves the way for continued success at WStore.

The dedicated new store offers WStore's business customers access to Computer Associates' leading ARCserve and eTrust product suites, which offer SMEs backup and security software they can rely on.

"WStore has outperformed our other channel partners in terms of extraordinary growth and is a deserving recipient of the Largest Growth Reseller Account for 2003 award. The development of the Computer Associates store on the WStore site marks a new chapter in our relationship which I am confident will benefit both parties and, more importantly, our customers" said Jim Darragh, UK Channel Sales Director at Computer Associates.

Tony Price, WStore managing director, said: "We are constantly investing in our site, in our staff and in our vendor relationships; the launch of our Computer Associates site is evidence of this investment. Since 1999, when we opened for business in the UK, we have been ahead of the pack, both in terms of our use of technology and the service we offer to our customers. Our customer base has grown exponentially and our vendor relationships are now stronger than ever. Last year was a good year for WStore and I expect 2004 to be even better."
