Avaya and Azlan split, end UK distie pact

They're still loved up in other EMEA markets

TD Azlan has confirmed it is splitting with Avaya in the UK but will continue the distie agreement in other parts of EMEA.

Talk in the industry was that sales generated did not match the level of investment sunk into the franchise by Azlan and the firms have decided to cut ties locally.

"Avaya UK and Azlan – part of the Computer 2000 group – have agreed to end their partnership in the UK market but continue to work together across other EMEA markets," said Andy Dow, marketing director at C2000.

The vendor's other existing UK distributors include Westcon, Scan Source and Avnet, with no other major changes to the line-up expected. ®
