IBM and Sharptext
Sharptext is Ireland’s leading IT distributor and is a key business partner for IBM in the country. As the sole Irish IBM distributor, we work very closely with IBM locally to provide a support and fulfilment role to our community of IBM reseller partners. We cover the full spectrum of product including Power, Storage, System X, RSS and Software.

An important part of the role provided by Sharptext is in market building and enablement of resellers. Sharptext has established a successful track record of working with local IBM resellers, from initial recruitment, training and campaign planning, through to pre-sales consultancy and ongoing support and advice. We run regular demand generation activities, with leads being passed on to the resellers.

Sharptext was founded in 1980 and is a subsidiary of DCC plc. In terms of structure, the company operates two divisions - Reseller and Enterprise. The Reseller Division provides resellers with all the traditional distribution services, whereby they order product from a very large local stock holding and then use our comprehensive logistical network to fulfil direct to their customers. The Enterprise Division is centred on a team of solution consultants who work with resellers to design real value-add solutions for their larger corporate sites, covering existing and emerging technologies such as virtualisation and unified communications. Together, the Sharptext Reseller and Enterprise divisions bring resellers an unsurpassed level of combined expertise and product knowledge, amassed over many years’ experience of partnering with IBM.
