Colt, Europe's leading information delivery platform, has announced it has appointed its first franchise partners in a move that will both widen the distribution of its integrated network and IT services in Europe and expand its network of channel partners. The first franchise partners are already in place in France ahead of the wider rollout of Colt's franchise partner channel across Europe. Through its franchise partners, Colt will offer a comprehensive range of flexible networking and compute options, designed to meet the specific needs of small and medium sized enterprises.
"With the appointment of our first franchise partners, we continue to expand our integrated network and IT services strategy for the channel and extend the success of our European partner programme. This new approach will allow us to tap into the agility, entrepreneurial spirit and local expertise of our franchise partners," said Francois Eloy, EVP Colt Communication Services.
