What's the future for PC World Business?
Here at Bitterwallet, we’ve got a bit of history with whistleblowers from within DSGi’s pleasuredome. Last year, news of store restructuring and redundancies made its way here before many of the staff were aware of what was going on.
We’ve had another whisper from within DSGi’s pleasuredome, and if it’s true, then more job cuts could be on the way.
We’re told that Equanet, the parent company of PC World Business will shortly be sold to Misco, meaning the end of PC World Business; in future, business customers will only be able to purchase from the retail selection of goods instore.
It doesn’t take a genius to work out what this will mean for the dedicated business staff within the company’s stores. The closure of Equanet’s Surbiton office was announced in December, with 18 staff told they had a month's consultation period in which to find other posts in the group.
If our source is on the money, that could also be the case for scores of PC World Business account developers in the not-too-distant future.
DSGi have categorically denied the allegations and told Bitterwallet: “There have been no conversations with Misco.”
