* Pinnacle Micro and HP – South Africa

Pinnacle Micro, the broad-based ICT distributor, has signed a distribution agreement with HP's Personal Systems Group. According to Louis Fourie, head Pinnacle Micro's HP business unit "This is an extremely important strategic move for us and allows our resellers to offer the marketplace an additional, market-leading range of products, including desktops, notebooks, thin client and PDAs. It is very likely that it will enable us to grow revenue from our current client base - and move into sectors of the corporate market that our reseller base is not presently operating in."
