I guess we still are an authorized reseller/business partner so I got this email.
|Whether your company has recently become an HP partner or has been an HP partner for a long time, it is always a good practice to review the terms and conditions of the Business Development Agreement (BDA). A topic currently causing some confusion among the partner community is the section covering sourcing and selling of HP products. Many partners have told HP they have been approached by independent distributors soliciting their HP business at very attractive discounted prices. Many of these distributors are not authorized to distribute HP products to authorized channel partners for resale. The terms and conditions of the BDA require HP partners to source HP products only from HP or HP authorized distributors.|
The U.S. Distributor Summary matrix contains the names of all companies authorized by HP. If a distributor is not listed on the matrix they are not authorized by HP.
Well DUH!!! HP
. Dealers cant make a living on 2-3% margins.
I have so many gripes about this email, I could write a book.
