Utopia Technology and Philips Professional Display Solutions announce new distribution partnership

_users_rebecca_appdata_local_temp_f21d2396-980b-438c-a408-07bbdbaa68e2_image1Manchester based value-added enterprise distributor Utopia Technology has announced that Philips Professional Displays will be the latest global brand to join the company’s impressive but tightly focused portfolio of complimentary partners.

Both companies believe the partnership has significant potential, in part due to their shared philosophy of focusing on providing end-to-end solutions and exceptional customer support and service, rather than simply focusing on the sales of individual items.

The new partnership was announced in early September at a dedicated two day training programme, at Utopia’s Manchester HQ, implemented by Philips for all of Utopia’s sales and technical support teams.

Utopia deliberately partners with a carefully selected range of leading global brands and only adds new partners that are complimentary to existing business and are disruptive in the market. Philips was considered a perfect fit due to its high brand recognition, its technical credibility and its innovative range of premium quality digital signage and commercial TV products.

The Philips range brings new business options to the established Utopia portfolio as part of the company’s ongoing strategy. Philips is one of the World’s best recognised and respected brands and has a long history of innovation for both digital signage and commercial TV products stretching back to the introduction of the original video-wall concept.

In addition to offering ground-breaking products Philips also offers market leading solutions to ensure its digital signage and commercial TV range remains the easiest to install, customise, control, monitor and update.

Commenting on the new partnership Managing Director of Utopia Technology, Steve McKeever said: ‘ We are very considered and cautious about our offering and will only add partners when they offer something exceptional, new and complementary to our existing portfolio. We also like companies that focus on the quality of their products and services rather than just trying to make a bigger ‘noise’ in the market place. Our customers know Philips and respect the company’s products and approach. All combined this makes a very exciting partnership’.

‘We very much share Utopia Technology’s focus on providing market leading solutions and exceptional support and service’ said Martin Ware, Sales Director Philips Display Solutions UK. ‘We admire Utopia’s totally professional approach and dedication to identifying and solving its customers’ needs. This is one reason why Utopia is one of the fastest growing and most respected distributors and as such they make the perfect partner for Philips.
