AxizWorkgroup was formed in April 2011 when Axiz - a leading hardware distributor - and Workgroup - a powerful software distributor - joined forces to take their expertise and best-of-breed practices to the African market.
Axiz, a leading distributor of world class hardware products as well as its own branded range, opened its doors in 1989. The company’s commitment to a strict channel-only policy was extended into the merger.
Workgroup also started in 1989 when it was appointed as the first Microsoft distributor in South Africa. Workgroup was well known within the South African IT market as a successful specialist knowledge distributor of software and value-based hardware products. Workgroup’s core strength was rooted in being able to predict and integrate with its vendors and resellers' needs. Known for offering extensive dealer reach with on-going and consistent market penetration, Workgroup brought this key factor into the new entity.
Employees at AxizWorkgroup know that a sale doesn’t end with a box drop, and each and every employee is focused on providing the best service possible. We pride ourselves on our long relationships with resellers and vendors and aim to be a valued supplier at all stages of the sales process.
With the coming together of these two powerhouses, AxizWorkgroup is able to boast a broad range of best-of-breed product ranges from respected vendors such as Acer, Citrix, Corel, EMC, HP, IBM, Intel, LG, Lenovo, Lexmark, McAfee, Microsoft, Novell, Oracle, Samsung, Seagate and VMWare, among others. Apart from a great product range, resellers also have at their disposal several key benefits such as: account and project management, specialised skills per vertical market, inventory planning and management, national logistics and delivery infrastructure.
