Last Wed­nes­day marked an­other sig­nif­i­cant move by Huawei to so­lid­ify its po­si­tion in the Jamaican mar­ket­place, with the sign­ing of an of­fi­cial agree­ment with Int­comex, a go-to mar­ket plat­form of value-added so­lu­tions and tech­nol­ogy prod­ucts. Huawei and Int­comex an­nounced a new strate­gic part­ner­ship in which both com­pa­nies will be com­bin­ing their re­sources to build the Huawei brand in Ja­maica with a main fo­cus be­ing the ex­ten­sive pro­mo­tion of Huawei’s Mate 8 and P9 fam­ily. To­gether, Huawei and Int­comex are co-in­no­vat­ing around the strength and breadth of Int­comex in Ja­maica, with equal fo­cus on Huawei, its strength world­wide and the de­vices that they have to bring to the Jamaican mar­ket. Huawei looks to com­pete with the in­creas­ing vol­umes of smart­phones that are sat­u­rat­ing the mar­ket to­day and, hope­fully, re­plac­ing them with their high-end af­ford­able sub­sti­tu­tions. “We are very pleased to form a strate­gic part­ner­ship with Int­comex. By com­bin­ing Huawei’s ex­per­tise in ad­vanced smart­phone de­vel­op­ment with Int­comex’s vi­sion of strength­en­ing Huawei’s pres­ence though its re­seller chan­nel, we can de­fine ex­cit­ing new op­por­tu­ni­ties for get­ting our name out to the pub­lic in a broader way”, said Chrysta Walker, mar­ket­ing and PR man­ager, Huawei.

FIRST CO-IN­NO­VA­TION FO­CUS

The first co-in­no­va­tion fo­cus area will be the ‘Sta­bil­ity of Huawei in Ja­maica’, which will bring a new ap­proach to com­bin­ing Int­comex’ di­rect re­la­tion­ships with over 80 branded ven­dors and hun­dreds of generic and OEM man­u­fac­tur­ers.

Int­comex’s strong re­la­tion­ships with their ven­dors al­low ac­cess to a large pool of knowl­edge, ex­per­tise and tech­nol­ogy, which Huawei will take ad­van­tage of to strengthen its dis­tri­bu­tion.

Sh­eryl Simp­son, prod­uct & mar­ket­ing man­ager at Int­comex, ex­plained, “As we en­ter a new era of in­for­ma­tion-cen­tric smart­phones, com­pa­nies must coin­no­vate En­ter­tainer Denyque and Austin Briscoe ex­am­ine phones on dis­play at the Huawei Int­comex event on Tues­day at @twen­tythree in New Kingston.

to solve tough prob­lems for their cus­tomers. This is why we are work­ing with Huawei, a mar­ket leader in smart­phone de­vel­op­ment and busi­ness so­lu­tion. This new of­fer rep­re­sents our be­lief that the fu­ture of smart­phone mar­ket is with Huawei and we hope to be hand in hand with Huawei as they cross the fin­ish line.”

In the re­gion, Int­comex op­er­ates in over 15 coun­tries and boasts an ac­tive re­seller chan­nel of over 1,500 part­ners, which will im­pact Huawei’s bot­tom line sig­nif­i­cantly. Both com­pa­nies are look­ing for­ward to em­bark­ing on this jour­ney to­gether, and are con­fi­dent that it will lead to even more great­ness.
