Six things you didn’t know about Arrow ECS ANZ

13 Mar 2018

If you’re reading this, chances are you know we’re an IT value-added distributor. If you know your way around the industry, you probably remember when we were Distribution Central. In the scheme of things, it hasn’t been that long since we were acquired by Arrow ECS (2016, to be precise). But a lot has changed since then. Here are six things you probably didn’t know about Arrow ECS ANZ.

1. We are a leader in IoT innovation

As early adopters, we’re passionate about advanced and emerging technologies, particularly those that have the power to transform the way we live. We see the Internet of Things (IoT) and the ability to harness and monetise data inside an organisation as their biggest competitive advantage and the catalyst to success in the digital transformation era. Arrow can work with you to deliver IoT solutions, from sensors and edge devices to gateways, data platforms and dashboard analytics. Whether you’re building the next smart device or transforming processes, we have the technology, services and expertise to bring your desired IoT solution to life.

2. We champion sustainable value recovery

Our Sustainable Technology Solutions enable businesses to unlock hidden value in their existing IT hardware assets and free up valuable funds for re-investment. Our ‘reuse first’ approach allows businesses to get the best return on the energy and materials embedded in the assets we process, while maintaining the highest security standards, so you can confidently protect your customer’s data and brand.

3. We’re serious about the environment

We have a dedicated green program that provides simple ways for our partners to offset carbon emissions. When we generate an invoice, we donate to Carbon Neutral: a not-for-profit Australian organisation. Through our donations, Carbon Neutral has planted more than 164,282 native trees. This equates to offsetting an estimated 27,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents (or taking 7800 cars off the road for a year).

4. We invest in the best people

Our most highly prized asset is the people we employ who deliver the true Arrow experience. We invest in people who are passionate, entrepreneurial and innovative, and who share Arrow’s core value of bringing value into people’s lives. Our people are experts in their field, and they are consistently recognised for making a difference. Thanks to our staff we have won more than 100 awards and accolades, but what makes us most proud is having ranked six times in BRW’s Best Places to Work list.
