Parsippany, NJ (PRWEB) August 3, 2008
COLOTRAQ, the sourcing company for IT and telecom services, announces the launch of its telecom and IT equipment sourcing business. COLOTRAQ Equipment Sourcing (CES) specializes in servers, storage, routers and switching products and is currently an authorized reseller for Dell, HP, IBM and APC. COLOTRAQ prides itself on quick turnaround of requests for quotation and handles single server requests as well as complex mega server deals with its staff of client support professionals.
The new business focuses primarily on fulfilling the hardware requirements of organizations which are equipping new data centers or upgrading existing facilities. As such, it is a perfect complement for the company's existing consulting business which helps clients procure a broad array of telecom and IT services such as colocation, managed services, and bandwidth. Because of its unique position in the distribution channel, COLOTRAQ can generally offer better pricing than is available direct from the manufacturer even for such hot products as Dell's PowerEdge or HP's ProLiant servers.
"We expect a significant demand for servers and storage from small to medium sized businesses as a result of increased adoption of server virtualization," commented Vice President of Business Development, Lou Peccoralo. He recently joined COLOTRAQ to head the new equipment business. Mr. Peccoralo is a 20-year telecom industry veteran with broad managerial experience in marketing, sales and operations.
According to Peccoralo, the company is currently developing an asset management program which will help reduce clients' overall capital expenditure by providing a vehicle for utilizing their legacy IT equipment after a technology refresh.
There are equipment VARs and there are sourcing advisory companies. COLOTRAQ is bridging the gap between the two by linking the decision to purchase IT assets with the location (or colocation) selection of the asset. Summarizing COLOTRAQ's value proposition, Peccoralo concluded, "Our clients are always looking to simplify their supply chain activities while staying within their budget. By adding the equipment piece, we've completed the puzzle for them. They can now purchase and relocate their equipment, anywhere in the world, from a single source with just one phone call."
COLOTRAQ is a full-service, vendor-neutral consulting firm that helps clients source a broad array of telecom and IT services and equipment. Company focus includes internal business case development, RFP formulation and vendor evaluation and selection. COLOTRAQ's clients benefit from its comprehensive network of more than 400 service providers and its unparalleled footprint covering over 1,300 markets in 221 countries.
