Collaborative work management provider, Mindjet has named IT infrastructure distributor, AxizWorkgroup, as its new South African distributor.

Mindjet regional vice president for Northern Europe, Middle East and Africa, Chris Harman, explains that AxizWorkgroup’s established reputation within South Africa and across the African continent will serve Mindjet well in expanding its presence within the region.

“AxizWorkgroup’s strong focus on software, particularly in terms of Microsoft SharePoint, was a key factor in our decision to partner with the company,” he says. “We believe that these skills will add tremendous value to Mindjet’s positioning in the area of collaborative work management.

“The company boasts an extensive reseller sales team and a dedicated product management team, which focuses on marketing, inventory management, sales support and training, as well as providing pre-sales technical support.”

Harman explains that, with the combination of its local knowledge, Microsoft expertise and quality service offerings, Mindjet can rest assured that its new and existing client base will be well looked after.

“As an existing user of Mindjet solutions, AxizWorkgroup has certainly experienced the benefits of collaborative work management firsthand,” states Craig Brunsden, executive of software and marketing at AxizWorkgroup. “In addition, we are a company that has enjoyed a history of successfully developing niche software products and exposing them to a skilled reseller base, and feel that, not only do Mindjet’s offerings fit in well with our product strategy, but we will also be able to give them wider exposure within the local reseller space.”

In order to support this projected regional growth, Mindjet has also expanded its South African headcount, recently appointing a local channel manager, as well as retaining the services of South African PR agency, icomm.
