Tech Data is to offer MendIT’s nationwide extended warranty and onsite repair services as part of its complete lifecycle management programme.
The agreement will enable Tech Data retailer and reseller partners to sell extended and on-site warranties and repair services provided by the Burnley-based company, including more than 300 contracts covering all major laptop, PC, tablet and smartphone brands.
Tech Data’s portfolio of lifecycle services already includes the Tech Data Renew trade-in scheme, under which end-user customers can release the residual value of their old equipment to make new investments more affordable, and a Tech-as-a-Service offering that provides an easy way for partners to offer hardware, software and services on a monthly subscription basis.
Tech Data has appointed a full-time business development executive, Rachel Baker, to help partners win business with MendIT and, as part of its launch, is offering a free OtterBox protective case for mobile phones on selected MendIT contracts.
James Reed, Managing Director, Endpoint Solutions, Tech Data, UK and Ireland, said: “This agreement with MendIT is a valuable addition to our lifecycle services portfolio. This, along with our other lifecycle offerings, provides our partners with a complete services ecosystem that allows them to offer more value and investment protection to their customers and drive higher revenues and profitability.”
