20:20 Mobile and Data Select pitch for Daisy supply
Hot on the heels of Daisy Telecom’s emergence as a major player in distribution, hardware distributors are looking to supply the company with handsets.
Data Select and 20:20 Mobile are understood to have made contact with Daisy about supplying the business with handsets, smartphones and laptops.
It comes after Daisy’s most recent acquisition of telecoms distributor, Redstone.
Daisy is looking to cement a position of the market leader in converged/unified telecoms provision to small to medium sized businesses
One distribution source said: ‘Unified comms space is a bit of a mess and we need some consolidation going forward, so this is an opportunity within the industry. Traditionally, the size of the players have been quite small and with someone like Daisy we can move forward.’
Another handset distributor source said: ‘Daisy want to offer a whole range of products including mobile and mobile broadband. Of course, we believe there are opportunities and they are very exciting.’
