    Channel resellers are increasingly being squeezed on a number of sides.

    The economic climate, customers buying smarter with the usefulness of open information on the net combined with a longer burn on existing kit, less refreshes = less purchases to go around.

    Times are hard, but yet many still prevail and are growing sales and margins in the same period. Change is essential, its hard work, but fruitful.
