PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), a leading global technology distributor, announced today that it is now stocking select Build-to-Order (BTO) servers from Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). Avnet’s partners in the U.S. will have stronger capabilities to meet the growing need for ready-to-ship server solutions. When combined with Avnet’s leading Configure-to-Order (CTO) capabilities, partners will now have a single source for all their HPE solutions needs, providing ease of doing business, more specific partner and end-user opportunities, increased outbound sales efforts, and the ability to leverage Avnet’s BTO, CTO and Smart Buy programs – whether their sales opportunities are simple or complex.
Avnet will carry a selection of HPE servers and blades, and related options, including the following:
- HP ProLiant DL360 Gen9 Server
- HP ProLiant DL380 Gen9 Server
- HP ProLiant BL460c Gen9 Server
“Avnet’s new full-distribution of these HPE offerings provides our channel partners with a single stop for all their HPE purchasing needs,” said Greg Peterson, vice president of Avnet’s HPE solutions business in the Americas. “With three kinds of purchasing opportunities – fully customized, transactional, and using BTO items for custom opportunities with optional integration, Avnet is the preferred channel choice for speeding time to solution for server-based projects.”
Avnet’s inventory of HPE servers and blades will be warehoused at and shipped from its Global Solutions Center, a state-of-the-art 228,000-square-foot integration and logistics facility located in Chandler, Ariz. This will benefit partners by providing faster delivery, simplified price quoting, quicker customer project implementations and streamlined operations, and ultimately, reducing the efforts of partners who have been going to multiple sources or splitting orders.
“Avnet has been a trusted partner of ours for more than 10 years, and their forward-thinking programs and services have helped us leverage our expertise to create solutions that exceed our customers’ expectations,” said Chuck Farrow, vice president, Strategic Alliances at Logicalis, an IT solutions and managed services provider and Avnet partner. “We now have yet another option for our customers, as Avnet will keep the most commonly requested HPE servers directly on hand, which will accelerate shipment and allow our customers to succeed faster.”
