Tech Data Announces Its Involvement In The Microsoft Devices Program

CLEARWATER, Fla., July 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech Data Corporation (Nasdaq:TECD) today announced its participation in the Microsoft Devices Program, enabling the company to distribute the Surface Pro and Surface RT to commercial customers. The goal of the Microsoft Devices Program is to serve customers by activating Microsoft's channel of partners to resell its devices to businesses of all sizes, from the classroom to the boardroom.

Tech Data's dedicated Microsoft business unit supports over 4,000 unique solution providers, including the large-account reseller, value-added reseller (VAR), and small- to medium-sized business (SMB) communities. The team offers Microsoft's full portfolio of products, including hardware, OEM, volume licensing, and retail products.

"We are excited to participate in the Microsoft Devices Program and distribute one of Microsoft's most anticipated products and its complementary accessories," said Stacy Nethercoat, vice president, Product Marketing, Software and Cloud Services at Tech Data. "The Surface Pro and Surface RT fit the needs of business customers seeking devices that adapt seamlessly to both work and play. Our participation in this program further demonstrates our commitment to our Microsoft channel partners."

"Bringing Surface Pro and Surface RT to the U.S. commercial channel through distributors extends the reach of our devices-and-services strategy, delivering our family of devices enabled by cloud services to more organizations than ever before," said Eric Martorano, senior director, U.S. SMB Channel Group for Microsoft Corp. "We look forward to working closely with our Microsoft devices authorized distributors to better serve their partners and create compelling solutions together."

The Microsoft Partner Network is designed to equip organizations that deliver products and services through the Microsoft platform with the training, resources and support they need to provide their customers superior experience and outcomes. Launching first in the U.S., Microsoft Devices Program creates a two-tier distribution model with authorized partners to enable commercial customers to purchase Surface Pro and Surface RT.
