Ernst & Young, a global leader in assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services, has rolled out more than 450 Lenovo X220 and T420 devices, in a project that is set to continue for the remainder of the year. The hardware is being supplied by Datacentrix, a provider of high performing and secure ICT solutions.

According to Leon van Schalkwyk, senior account manager at Datacentrix, Ernst & Young, which has representation in more than 30 African countries, opted to partner with Datacentrix for South Africa on the Lenovo route, due to its service and support representation. “Up until now, Ernst & Young has found support offerings in Africa to be slim, and hopes to capture this market as well. The company believes that the combination of Datacentrix expertise and Lenovo quality will be the answer moving forward for its on-ground partners.”

Says Ernst & Young, OSS sub-area lead, Bernard Drotskie: “Lenovo has recently increased competition within the marketplace with the introduction of some exciting new products. We believe that these solutions are ideally positioned to add diversity to our existing footprint.

“Furthermore, we have selected Datacentrix as our preferred Lenovo service partner due to its versatility and solution expertise.”

Datacentrix is one of three Tier 1 value added resellers for Lenovo in South Africa and can import and resell the entire range of Lenovo ThinkPad mobile products and ThinkCentre desktop PC products. The company is a fully certified authorised warranty services provider, which means that it is recognised as having the skills and infrastructure to perform warranty repairs on all Lenovo products.
