Tech Data is launching a Trusted Advisor campaign to make its customers aware of the full range of services and support available to enhance their efficiency, drive sales and achieve business objectives.
Linda Patterson, Tech Data Group Marketing Director, UK and Ireland, said: “The campaign aims to bring to partners’ attention the whole range of services and resources available from Tech Data, from online tools and enablement programmes to technical, training, logistics, financial services, news and guides.”
The campaign is initially highlighting 10 of the 60+ services that Tech Data believes most partners would benefit from in their day-to-day business that might be too costly, challenging or time-consuming for a partner to develop and run themselves.
