Harvey Norman Business & Education to join Matrix42’s growing channel network


Intelligent workspace management company, Matrix42 today announced its partnership with Harvey Norman Business & Education/MAC1 to offer a one-stop-shop solution to help organisations with workplace and mobility management.  Matrix42, a top provider of workspace management software and enterprise mobility management (EMM), works closely with strategic partners around the globe to deliver a single, integrated workspace management solution that meets the demands of the modern workspace.  Since its launch in Australia, the company has been providing mobile, virtual and physical workspace solutions to companies including Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Scentre Group and Woolworths. This partnership marks an exciting period of growth for Matrix42, with the company bolstering its aims towards double digit growth to its Australian sales and revenue.  Harvey Norman Business Education/MAC1, a national franchisee of the Harvey Norman Group, is committed to providing complete technology solution for schools, businesses and franchises, enterprise corporations and government organisations. With this partnership also marking an exciting period of growth as the business diversifies its focus from being an exclusive hardware vendor and retailer to now selling integrated software solutions.  “As we look to enhance our offering and develop our position as a trusted advisor in the solutions space, we were looking for partners that offer world class solutions that are easy to implement for our clients. The low IT engagement model that MyWorkspace utilises reinforces the increasingly common practice of certain ICT purchases being made by business managers and not solely the domain of CIO’s or IT Managers” says Rakesh Duncombe, General Manager of Sales and Marketing for Harvey Norman Business Education/MAC1. “Matrix42 has answered that need, offering a strong and non-intrusive solution at a good price point with the benefits of a local product development team, innovation and local support. With strong partners we are confident in achieving our long-term move towards solution first selling leveraging our strong retail brand heritage.”  Philippe Ortodoro, VP Global Sales at Matrix42 explained, “This is an exciting time for Matrix42, with our growing partner ecosystem growing as more and more strategically positioned companies see the value that our innovative products and services offer. We are at a pivotal time for many organisations where we want to provide every employee with a workspace that is personalised to his or her needs and role and we believe this partnership will help us with the scale that we need. We are very excited to be working with the team at Harvey Norman Business Education/MAC1, a dynamic reseller which really understands its customer needs while also a part of such an iconic national brand.”
