Accordingly, Hai Nam will become a strategic partner to distribute Schneider Electric’s products, especially in data centres.

Information and data have become important resources for enterprises in the era of Industry 4.0. Technology factors can directly affect the way businesses collect, receive, monitor, process, and operate information flows to enhance their speed, accuracy, and cost-efficiency.

Therefore, data centres and data storage and processing infrastructure play an increasingly significant role in meeting the evolving requirements of high availability and stability. To facilitate the goal, enterprises should pay more attention to energy efficiency and conservation in their data centres.

In this context, Schneider Electric IT Vietnam has teamed up with Hai Nam in distributing electrical equipment and energy management products, especially in data centre segment. The tie-up not only meets the pressing need for information and data management, but also reflects Schneider Electric's commitments to accompany Vietnamese enterprises in the 4.0 era.

Thus, Hai Nam has received Elite Partner status from Schneider Electric. The Elite Partner accreditation is the highest of the four certifications granted by the APC by Schneider Electric channel partner programme. It is determined by the competence of the partner, concentration, and commitment level including continuing education requirements, business plan, and annual sales.
