Ideal Hardware’s sister company, UniSolve, has been awarded accreditation from the Compaq Certified Integration Programme (CIP) - a Unix system channel configuration scheme. It follows the launch of True64 Unix and means UniSolve is able to configure Compaq Alpha Server Unix and OpenVMS systems to Compaq factory standards. There are only 14 CIP accredited Compaq partners worldwide. UniSolve claims to be able to offer resellers a 48 hour turnaround on Unix and OpenVMS system configuration - existing Compaq configuration schedules require a 21 day lead time. It also offers support from pre-sales to installation on customers’ premises. UniSolve is the services and configuration arm of the recently reorganised Ideal group. The new holding company, Inter-X, presides over three separate companies - Ideal Hardware, the product distribution company, UniSolve, the services company and ITNetwork, the one-time online news service which is about to be reborn as a product information database. Chris Webb, managing director of UniSolve said: "Being awarded the Compaq CIP accreditation means that we can now compete effectively with organisations such as Sun Microsystems, Hewlett-Packard and IBM. The CIP accreditation process is one of the toughest in the industry and we are delighted to further strengthen our partnership with Compaq." Ken Surplice, Compaq European Alpha Server marketing manager, said: "UniSolve will offer customers the same high quality of systems that they expect to come from our own manufacturing plants but being closer to the customer, UniSolve is able to provide a greater service and further cement its relationship with resellers." Meanwhile, Ideal Hardware has bolstered its relationship with Compaq by signing up to distribute the entire Compaq product range. Prior to last year’s Compaq/Digital merger, Ideal had been a Digital distributor. Mark Walker, Compaq business unit manager at Ideal said: "This was a common sense decision for Ideal. In a few short months we have established ourselves as a leading player in Compaq Classic distribution and now, together with CIP, we are taking this opportunity to become the market leader across the entire Compaq range very seriously." &reg:
