Insight opens China front

Helps clients stay legit

Insight Enterprises, the giant US reseller, is dipping its toes into mainland China, opening up base in Shanghai. The office is not facing inwards, more reaching out to multinationals with Chinese subs.

Insight claims 70 per cent of Global Fortune 500 companies as its customers – and it can help their Chinese operations avoid using pirated software and obtain better prices from a trusted supplier for legits, it says/

Quote time from John Havlik, Insight’s Asia Pac MD: Mr. Havlick said: "Establishing a presence in China positions Insight to service clients who are not only seeking to comply with the government’s steps to end piracy, but to also provide them with technology solutions and strategies to manage their IT environment."

Insight is gunning for offices Beijing in 2007 and then its onto Shenzhen and Guangzhou.

The company among other things one of the biggest computer dealers in the UK. ®
