With the past year of disruption surrounding COVID-19 and multiple years of uncertainty surrounding Brexit too, it’s vital for suppliers, businesses, channels and economies to create opportunity and deliver positivity and newness for UK customers. This is according to Data Direct.
As a distribution partner to hundreds of businesses in the UK, Data Direct offers its customers solutions to help with their business model to become more cost-effective, streamlined and efficient. As customers are increasingly looking for newness, relevancy and incremental products, there are opportunities for brands, manufacturers, suppliers and innovators that Data Direct can facilitate.
While the past year has seen some shift away from the core copier and print business towards PPE distribution, WFH (working from home) solutions and hugely relevant innovations, including SmartMister, many more opportunities still present themselves in the UK market.
Peter Cowan, Data Direct/Access UK, Procurement Director said, “through 2020, we opened up distribution and enabled the successful launch of multiple products in the UK. With procurement, selling and marketing expertise, we offer businesses access to UK distribution to create an opportunity for all. With Access UK specifically, we’re looking for new products/innovations to add to our product range - primarily aimed at supporting the office equipment/IT channel, but also interested in more diverse (non-perishable) products. This strategy is aimed at enhancing the capabilities and scope of our existing dealer channel while offering greater and deeper engagement with our suppliers, both old and new.”
