Esquire’s laptop and desktop sales increase by 70% for Q1
Mar 24th, 2015

While South Africa’s economic growth appears to be crimped, with concerns that the economy will be negatively affected by the impact of unemployment, load-shedding and industrial action during 2015, it would seem that the small and medium enterprise (SME) market is gathering steam and is investing increasingly in information technology (IT).

This is according to Asgar Mahomed, MD of Esquire Technologies, one of the leading technology distributors in SA, who said the company is heading for a 70% increase in sales of desktops and laptops for Q1.

“There definitely seems to be some growth happening in the SME market, well, certainly among our clients.

“These SMEs, while growing, are investing increasingly in PCs, laptops and printers – hence our significant increase in sales in this department.”

Another market sector showing increased fervour is the education sector, which is increasingly driving towards a paperless education system – with schools increasingly investing in desktops, laptops, tablets and printers.

He said the 70% increase in desktop and laptops sales has had a material impact on total revenue – which spiked by 30%.

“We also had our best trading year – for the past 15 years – for our year ended February 2015,” said Mahomed.
