Tech Data is partnering with MendIT, extended warranty, insurance, and onsite repair specialist to offer the company’s nationwide services.
This will enable Tech Data’s retailer and reseller partners to be able to quote their customers for extended and on-site warranties and repair services provided by MendIT. More than 300 different contracts, covering all major hardware brands, are available for resellers to offer to their commercial and public sector customers. Burnley-based MendIT offers services on all leading vendors of laptops, PCs, tablets, and mobile phones.
Tech Data has appointed a full-time business development executive, Rachel Baker, to support partners in identifying and winning business with MendIT.
James Reed, managing director, Endpoint Solutions, Tech Data, UK and Ireland, said: “This agreement with MendIT is a valuable addition to our lifecycle services portfolio. This, along with our other lifecycle offerings, provides our partners with a complete services ecosystem that allows them to offer more value and investment protection to their customers and drive higher revenues and profitability.”
Commenting on behalf of MendIT, Andrew Derbyshire, Sales Director, said: “Tech Data is the UK’s leading technology distributor, and this partnership is a landmark for MendIT. By making our services an integral part of their lifecycle proposition, Tech Data is opening up huge additional potential for us to reach out to more partners, help them to grow their sales and deliver more value to their end user customers.”
As part of its launch plan, Tech Data is offering a free OtterBox protective case for mobile phones on selected MendIT contracts. OtterBox specialises in producing mobile device cases that are resistant to water, shock, drops and other kinds of trauma.
