BDC Services Appointed as PatchSee Reseller through Partnership with 3P Design

News Release

1st August 2019

BDC Services, today announced a new partnership with 3P, becoming a reseller of PatchSee products in Australia. PatchSee manufactures the world's first RJ45 cable to use fibre optic technology for tracing purposes.

BDC Services Managing Director, Brendan Dunne says PatchSee resolves the inefficiencies faced by IT staff trying to identify cables on complicated patch panels:

“My clients are finding this product incredibly helpful, making it fast and easy to trace cables between equipment and patch panels. Each cable contains two optic fibres that can be lit up at each end for tracing the end points, and it’s possible to display different coloured lights when tracing multiple cables at the one time.”

“Almost every IT person has at some point faced the frustration of trying to trace cables using traditional methods. This product is the first of its kind in the market and we know it’s solving an important need. The PatchSee range removes the need to purchase multiple colours and lengths of each colour, saving our client’s money and time having to store all patch lead variations.”

“As a reseller, we also appreciate the free demo kits provided by the manufacturer, allowing customers to trial the system for themselves and test the quality. Seeing the product in action, helps clients to understand exactly how it works and we’re seeing increasing demand as more and more clients realise just how much time and frustration it can save them.”

Speaking on the partnership, Frederic Dalles, Business Development Manager at 3P Design says:

“We’re very pleased to have signed BDC Services as a reseller of our PatchSee product range in Australia. The company has a good online presence with an efficient e-commerce portal making it easy for customers to procure our products in the Australian market.”

“It’s also reassuring for us a manufacturer to know that our Australian customers are well taken care of with BDC Services’ technical knowledge and expertise. Beyond just selling the hardware, they are able to provide design and scoping advice, installation, and ongoing support and services.”

“The PatchSee products are a natural fit with BDC Services’ other IT Infrastructure offerings, making it a useful value-add on the types of projects they typically deliver and for many of their existing clients.”
