Tech Data Mobile senior vice-president Rod Millar (pictured) said: ‘Tech Data Mobile Solutions is pleased to announce its arrangement with SquareTrade, which will offer end-to-end mobile insurance programs and streamline the supply chain to provide the most comprehensive mobile solutions in the industry. We have the infrastructure, resources and expertise in place to provide highly efficient and effective complete mobile solutions. Combined with SquareTrade’s expertise in quality device protection, we are offering our customers complete, winning mobile solutions.’
SquareTrade MD Kevin Gillan added: ‘As we expand globally, delivering the award-winning SquareTrade experience to customers regardless of their geography is a top priority. Our arrangement with Tech Data Mobile Solutions will help us bring the same reliability, transparency and trust that our American customers enjoy to millions of new European mobile users. We expect this arrangement to transform the mobile insurance market in Europe.’
