• Tech Data launches Dell Software Store

        • Tech Data has unveiled its latest Software Store, launching dedicated pages for Dell support contracts that will enable partners to maximise renewals business and greatly reduce turnaround times.
           
          Using the online portal, which existing Tech Data reseller customers can access via InTouch, Tech Data’s e-commerce platform, reseller partners can see all their renewals for the current and next two quarters, allowing them to contact customers whose support contracts are due for renewal immediately, and make plans in advance to engage with their end-user customers that have approaching due-dates.
           
          As prices are pre-approved, partners can provide a quote for the customer right away and place the order immediately. They can log on and view the information – and download it into Excel or other software – at any time. Tech Data is sending monthly emails to registered Dell partners with details of upcoming renewals.
           
          Access to the portal will cut the amount of time partners need to spend actively seeking out a renewal quote and placing an order dramatically. Previously, it could have taken anything from a few hours to two days to process a renewal.
           
          Matt Warwick, Dell Technologies Business Unit Director at Tech Data UK said, “the new Dell Software Store will ensure Dell partners need never miss out on support contract renewals and make it faster and easier for them to transact renewals business. It’s going to help them do more business and save a huge amount of time. This is an unrivalled resource for Dell partners – there is nothing like this anywhere in the channel today – and one that aligns perfectly with our trusted advisor approach, of driving sales growth and profit, reducing cost and enhancing end-user customer satisfaction for partners.”
           
          Previously, Dell partners would have needed to keep a record of renewal dates and pro-actively request a quote through Tech Data.
           
          Renewals for support contracts that cover a range of Dell servers, storage and networking products are available via the Tech Data Software Store. The Dell portal is the eighth to go live on InTouch. There are already stores for Autodesk, Adobe, Cisco, Microsoft, Red Hat, Veeam, and VMware. Tech Data is also preparing to launch more dedicated renewals portals, with Veritas the next due to go live soon and another being readied for Broadcom/Symantec.
