Tech Data has announced Cisco 1Source, an online self-service portal within its InTouch e-commerce platform that makes it quicker and simpler for partners to turn estimates and deals registered on the Cisco Commerce Workspace (CCW) system, into hard quotations – in real-time.
As 1Source is integrated with CCW, as soon as the data is available on the Cisco platform, it is also available on InTouch. The only thing partners need do is log in to InTouch and start building their quotes, allowing them to deliver a faster, more responsive service to their customers. The tool is now fully available after a successful pilot phase and it is already being used by many of Tech Data’s managed Cisco partners.
Tony Nevill, Director, Cisco, at Tech Data, UK and Ireland, “We have put a lot of effort into the development of 1Source and we believe it will really help Cisco partners to save time and win more business. It can be frustrating for partners when they have to wait for bids or deals to come through. Being able to get a quote done and out to the customer without any delay can make a huge difference. This is one more reason why it makes sense for Cisco partners to work with Tech Data as their distributor of choice.”
