HSC to partner O2 on ‘approved’ dealer scheme
HSC is set to partner O2 on the network’s approved dealer scheme and will launch it to ‘key’ dealers on 21 July.
The distributor has 20 dealer candidates for O2’s ‘approved’ dealer scheme which, will make the coveted O2 exclusive iPhone available to the channel.
Fone Logistics and Avenir launched on the new scheme yesterday (1 July). It is thought the network did not launch the new ‘approved’ scheme with more than two distributors initially for logistical reasons.
HSC has shirked market criticism about its relationship with the network, saying its partnership remains strong with O2.
HSC’s business manager, Bob Sweetlove said: ‘We’ve actively worked with O2 on the new approved business stockist scheme and are delighted to be launching it to our key O2 stockists on 21 July. There is no higher distribution status with O2 than that held by HSC.’
