Microsoft South Africa has appointed Tarsus Distribution as an official distributor for its Surface high-end notebooks and hybrid tablet/laptop devices in South Africa.

It maintains this position through a continuous focus on its channel partners, results and customer satisfaction-oriented employees, a deep and broad offering of the world’s leading Tier-1 IT brands, tailor-made channel financial services and extensive support capabilities, all underpinned by an unsurpassed nationwide logistics capability.
Tarsus Distribution will initially supply the Surface Laptop 3 and Surface Pro 7 models to the channel, partnering with selected Microsoft Distribution Managed Partners (DMP) and limited retailers to bring the products to market from August.
