believe in bringing out the latest and most updated technology for

our partners. Innovation with style has been our motto and we have

strengthened it further to give the best in performance, sound and

TAT, only applicable for notebook service. 2 and 3 are well known to

our channel fraternity. But 1- hour service is one of MSI's unique

projects in India to improve service drastically. MSI will ensure

that it can finish off repair work within 1-hour of its receipt of

the notebook. If the service needs major parts to be changed, that

may take the TAT time as per policy. This 1-hour service has been

initiated in Nehru Place through our ASP for G Series. This would be

extended to F series from next month,” said Eric Kuo, GM, MSI

increasing its existing channel base by bringing world class

technology to India.

part of our organizational setup. We have a wonderful set of national

and regional distributors, resellers, retailers and system

integrators. We are happy and contended with our existing set of

loyal partners. However, as part of our channel business model, we

would continuously look at increasing our channel base in India,”

elucidated Kuo. With the domestic market being

flooded by influx of products, MSI is all geared up to meet

competition in the coming months by launching its latest innovative

products. Since, India is an important market for MSI, Kuo specified

that they are continuously working towards making the marketing

strategy more aggressive and effective.
