A Great Time To Be In Business!

A Great Time to be in Business!

Reading a recent report of industry growth in PC Retail magazine was encouraging for Ortial Technologies. The Q3 2018 report from industry analyst Context said that there was a 7.1% year-on-year growth in IT distribution across Europe. The information came from data collection on vendor shipments combined with both direct and channel end-user sales tracking. This level of growth gave us even greater confidence in the market, which led to our latest agreement with CMS Distribution, a major IT distributor in the region.

Up to 10% growth increase

This was even more encouraging when compared to the previous quarter’s growth, which was a more modest 5.4% but already building on the 4.5% increase of Q1. The highest performing countries were Italy, Portugal, Belgium, Czech Republic, Spain and Sweden, which all saw growth increases of over 10% year-on-year. The fastest growth rates compared to the previous quarter went to the Baltics, Poland, France and Germany but our base country – the UK – performed well too.

Growing popularity of computing components

UK growth in the sector remained strong at above 5% overall. Within this, computing components performed even better with a 10% year on year growth thanks to HPE and Intel processors and HPE RAM parts. As a third party alternative, it was a great time to expand on our RAM product ranges, particularly our server memorydesktop memory and notebook memory offerings. With no conflict with branded core systems, they offer the burgeoning market a cost effective, high performance alternative to systems design.
