Compaq is to publish a reseller-only section for its UK Web site from the autumn. At the same time, it will improve Compaq UK online content for customers through the introduction of end user forums and topics.
Compaq's new reseller service will feature a software tool designed to help dealers with their sales quotations.
This is based on technology inherited from Counselor, a CD-based sales tool used by US resellers. Counselor is expected to be superseded by the new Web-based format.
The company said it had no plans to license dealers to sell products over the Net. "They are perfectly entitled to sell and market Compaq products over the Web already," UK commercial marketing manager Peter Blampied said.
