Bytes Document Solutions expands to Mauritius

Bytes Document Solutions, the distributor for Xerox in 26 African countries appointed Linxia to distribute its range of Xerox multifunction devices (MFDs) and printers in the Republic of Mauritius and surrounding Indian Ocean islands.

“We have extended our partnership to Linxia’s 300 channel partners, and we are supporting them out of South Africa, with a regional Xerox reseller programme. That infrastructure is a key factor in the success of Xerox in the region, since Mauritius is increasingly serving as a hub for the Indian Ocean islands.” says Olivier Merven, regional manager for Africa in the Xerox division at Bytes Document Solutions.

The channel partner programme is based on extensive local research into the needs of resellers in Africa and the Indian Ocean islands, and presents them with tailored packages to meet their individual capabilities and growth opportunities. They can expect a range of traditional support activities and materials, but also some new, technologically advanced, information-driven mechanisms for assisting their sales processes.

Xerox will conduct workshops with resellers in the region, beginning with product managers from South Africa divulging the latest MFD and printer trends and technological developments.

“We have restructured our operation in view of our expansion, and now have a separate identity for our distribution channel. With the backing of Bytes Document Solutions, its extensive distributor and reseller support programmes and Xerox, we can ensure consistent and reliable supply and support at competitive pricing.” says Alain Ah Sue, MD of Linxia.
