HCL ME Tablet
Signalling an aggressive market expansion mode to reach out to a wider channel network for its range of tablet PCs, HCL will shortly be appointing a national distributor in the coming financial year.
However, HCL refused to name the national distributor officially.
"We will be appointing a national distributor (ND) in the coming financial quarter. However, our existing mode of distribution will remain in place, and the ND will just be an addition to the layer," said Gautam Advani, EVP, mobility, head, HCL Infosystems.
The primary reason as cited by HCL is opening the tablet market to a wider reach, and harnessing the same.
"The tablet market was a niche, initially limited to selected buyers. However, we are noticing greater traction in the market with tablet prices falling and the very traction needs a revised channel structure in place," Advani added while reasoning for the need for a ND.
