Avenir and Westcoast go public


Avenir Telecom marked its new joint venture with IT distributor Westcoast with a dealer forum at Westcoast’s headquarters in Reading, Berkshire.

Network operators Orange, 3, T-Mobile and Vodafone were in attendance, alongside BlackBerry manufacturer Research In Motion and laptop maker Hewlett Packard. The event was also attended by more than 100 of both Avenir and Westcoast resellers.

Avenir managing director Tanny Price (pictured) said: “It was the perfect opportunity to introduce our new partnership with Westcoast and to demonstrate to our resellers the opportunities and relevance for the current market that Avenir and Westcoast’s combined knowledge can offer.

“We have seen very high levels of interest that exceeded our greatest expectations.”

Westcoast managing director Duncan Forsyth added: “Uniting our resellers and the network operators proved a very powerful way of bringing our completely connected offering with Avenir to current and potential customers, and also enabled our resellers to better understand our partnership.”
