Their scale, processes and infrastructure can be of huge benefit to partners who lack the resources and infrastructure themselves to meet their customers changing technology needs. Distributors can not only support their partners but also help them to strengthen their customer relationships by adding value added services through their partners that the partners themselves would not have otherwise been able to offer.
