Tech Data UK has won Surface Distributor of the Year as part of the FY21 Microsoft Surface PC Partner Awards. The company was honoured among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating outstanding leadership and value for its mutual customers.
Building on the long-standing partnership between the two companies in the UK, Tech Data and Maverick AV Solutions – the specialist audiovisual business of Tech Data – have worked with Microsoft to increase visibility and awareness of both the Surface range of mobile devices and Surface Hub collaboration solutions amongst UK partners. Both the Tech Data and Maverick teams have developed in-depth knowledge of the solutions and provided key services and end-to-end support for partner business development.
James Reed, Managing Director Endpoint Solutions, Tech Data, UK and Ireland said, “this award recognises Tech Data’s commitment to onboarding and supporting partners in developing business for Surface devices and Surface Hub solutions – through both its specialist Microsoft team and the Maverick AV Solutions business. We have already enjoyed significant success with Surface devices and as collaboration and mobility become ever-more important to all organisations, we see many more opportunities ahead for our partners with Microsoft solutions.”
The Microsoft Surface PC Partner Awards recognise Microsoft partners that have helped move Microsoft, their companies and our customers forward during a time of unprecedented uncertainty across the globe. Customers benefitted from all of the great experiences that Microsoft Surface solutions provide, at a time they needed them the most.
Naseem Tuffaha, General Manager of Worldwide Sales and Go-to-Market for Microsoft added, “just as Surface delivers the best of Microsoft, our partner award winners represent the best of Surface—through their market outreach, sales success, and support of our joint customers to realize their full potential with Surface. We are honoured to recognise Tech Data UK for their accomplishments in FY21 with this award.”
The Microsoft PC Partner Awards were categorised into several categories, with honourees chosen from hundreds of submitted nominations. Tech Data UK was recognised for providing outstanding solutions and services to Surface partners.
