TAIT, HP, Megahertz Organize Mega Event in Mumbai

Mega Event

HP ProCurve products (primarily switches) were ceremonially demonstrated among Mumbai-based resellers last Friday evening, in a programme jointly organized by HP, Megahertz and TAIT (Trade Association of Information Technology).

Surya Narayan C. S., Channel Sales Manager – CBG, HP India Sales, made his presentation in the event. He pointed out that in today’s market scenario demands for open standard products are growing, and those are more advantageous than the proprietary components.

Through his informative presentation, Surya Narayan explained how superior return on IT investment could be obtained through ProCurve products – considering their price competitiveness, enhanced performance and experience-based design. He also focused on the reduced complexity of the products, their security aspects, reliability, choice and flexibility options.

Contextually, ProCurve products are of plug & play nature. The manufacturer cares for security in both wired and wireless environments.

Life-long warranty is an attractive proposition from the company. While explaining how does ProCurve manage to offer such a long-term warranty, Surya Narayan said, “As long as the customer is going to use the product, our warranty is valid. We can do it because HP manufactures these products. Products are replaced because of technology obsolescence. But in case of HP, as long as the customer uses the product, we give warranty.”

Mumbai-based Megahertz System is distributing ProCurve products. They are now providing conditional exchange offers to upgrade from 10/100 to 10/100/1000 or unmanaged to managed switching. The offer will remain open up to 31st October or till the stock lasts.

According to Surya Narayan, some more advantages of HP ProCurve products are – free firmware (networking software) update till the time customer uses the product, advance replacement, replacement within next business day in metro cities and within land travel time in non-metros.

Megahertz is also running a Mega Festival Offer scheme, up to 30th September. This scheme includes various IT products from HP, viz – HP/Compaq Notebooks, Desktops, Li-Ion batteries, adapters etc. Plus there are attractive prizes like Apple 1 GB IPod for billing amount of Rs. 25,000, 15-inch colour TV for billing amount of Rs. 50,000, mini refrigerator billing amount of Rs. 75,000 and Philips Home Theatre for billing amount of Rs. 1,00,000.

There are more cash discount offers too. Taken altogether, it’s a bonanza for the resellers and value added resellers, who sell HP products.
