Strengthens range of software products for resellers

McAfee lands at C2000’s electronic software distribution service

Computer 2000, the UK arm of Tech Data, has added the full range of security solutions from McAfee to its online software service TD Activate-here.

It’s an electronic software distribution (ESD) service that aims to makes it simple for SMB resellers, e-tailers and retailers to offer a full choice of top selling software solutions to their customers.

They can use TD Activate-here to order software products for immediate deployment and use. There is no requirement to order product in advance, or to display or stock physical ‘boxed’ software. 

Tech Data reports that the Activate-here service has been growing nicely, and at current rates, it expects more than 10,000 resellers to have used the service by the end of its fiscal year (which is just a couple of days away on 31 January 2013). 

James Reed, director of software and systems at Computer 2000, said: “The addition of the McAfee product range brings considerable value to TD Activate-here and will encourage even more resellers to use this valuable service. We have been really encouraged to see many customers using TD Activate-here on a frequent basis, buying from us more often or for the first time. By making it much easier for them to offer a wide range of leading products and dramatically reducing their cost of sale, TD Activate-here is encouraging more SMB resellers and retailers to offer and to attach software at the point of sale. It is undoubtedly helping them to increase their software sales and their profitability.”

Reed expects the number of resellers using TD Activate-here to increase this year. “With the entire McAfee range now fully available on TD Activate-here, we expect the number of customers using the system to grow and anticipate usage accelerating over the course of 2013.”
