Getronics will offer WiFi solutions for companies in sectors as diverse as Retail and Large Area, SMEs, Hotels and Accommodations, Hospitals, Offices and Education among others
Madrid, November 28, 2018 – Fontech, the technology division of Fon and leader in WiFi software for operators and companies, and Getronics, a global provider of ICT solutions, have just signed a global distribution agreement. Fontech’s portfolio of solutions will now be available to Getronics customers. Getronics, a company with a long history in the ICT sector, has nearly 9,000 employees in 23 countries in Europe, Asia Pacific, North America and Latin America.
The new agreement is an important strategic move for both companies. Fontech, which for a long time has been the provider of WiFi solutions chosen by telecommunications companies worldwide, is making a great effort this year to actively expand its offer through the channel. Thanks to this, and with the addition of Getronics, it already has numerous partners.
From now on, Getronics will operate as a Certified Partner of Fontech, which implies a commitment on its part to acquire the necessary technical and sales knowledge to represent Fontech’s products and services. For Getronics “the distribution of WiFi-managed services adding differential characteristics for each vertical sector, means entering a segment with significant growth expectations,” said Joan Marcer, Sales Executive – Selected Enterprises at Getronics.
The company will distribute Fontech’s growing portfolio of enterprise solutions, including WiFi solutions for SMEs, Retail and Large Areas, Hotels and Accommodations, Hospitals, Offices, and Education, in more than twenty countries in Europe, Asia Pacific, North America and Latin America. Santiago López Cano, Director of Sales & Delivery Fontech, said about the agreement: “We are betting heavily on the channel because it gives us a unique opportunity to grow in the market. However, our objective is more to establish a very close relationship with our partners and distributors that allows us to offer a differential value than to create a very extensive network.”
Fontech, the technology division of Fon, facilitates operators and companies to manage and operate WiFi in a simple and intelligent way. Our portfolio of solutions, based on state-of-the-art software, together with our team of experts, allows us to offer secure, scalable and flexible WiFi services to our customers, thus offering an exceptional WiFi experience for its users. We are the trusted provider of WiFi software for both leading operators globally and for companies, for example, Deutsche Telekom Group, SoftBank, Telstra, and Vodafone Group.
