Seagate's Egypt Collection Point Opens

- CAIRO, Egypt --Seagate Technology has opened a Collection Point in Cairo, which will service Seagate’s authorised distributors, resellers, and partners in Egypt under the company’s extensive warranty program.

The opening of the Collection Point here demonstrates Seagate’s commitment to provide best-in-class support to partners and resellers across the MEA region and particularly in Egypt, recognising its position as a key regional market. The establishment of the Cairo Collection Point highlights the enhanced investments and greater focus on sales, marketing and support initiatives to maintain Seagate’s strategy for MEA as a major growth market for its leading storage products.

The Collection Point processes Return Material Authorization (RMA) disc drives at one central location, speeding up and simplifying the return procedures for Seagate™ disc drives.

“In establishing the Cairo Collection Point, we are providing Seagate’s partners with yet another advantage in the Middle East market,” said Ziad Abou Rahal, channel manager, Middle East, at Seagate Technology . “Our authorized partners can now process returned drives much more quickly and in a more economical way which benefits both them and their customers. Combined with our limited five-year warranty on Seagate disc drive products, the establishment of the Cairo Service Centre demonstrates Seagate’s commitment to partners in the region. We will continue to introduce new service programs which will enable our partners to offer not just the best products and technology but the best end-to-end customer experience.”
