Tech Data Mobile has announced it is now ‘Samsung’s biggest distributor across Europe’, following its appointment as a distribution partner.
The company explained that the partnership allows it to offer mobile dealers and resellers greater choice, claiming it has made Tech Data Mobile ‘the most relevant of all UK distributors’. MD Peter Hubbard said the company is looking to use this opportunity to strengthen its portfolio and ‘build a value proposition’.
He said: ‘Tech Data Mobile is building a value proposition for the future. One that will enable our partners to offer the best mobility devices, software and services and enable them to attract more business, add more value and build a stable and loyal customer base.’
‘Tech Data Mobile is delighted to be selected as a trusted partner for Samsung. This appointment will allow us to build on our long-standing relationship with Samsung and enable Tech Data to consolidate its position as Samsung's biggest distributor across Europe. The Galaxy range is a worldwide success and we intend to deliver a world-class service to our customers. We are looking forward to working closely with Samsung to drive innovative consumer and business solutions.’
The company claims it will use its B2B and consumer sales teams, as well as launching ‘specific initiatives’ to ‘drive the Samsung brand’. It will also provide lifecycle services across the range of devices, to include a buy-back and trade-in scheme, tailored airtime contracts and extended warranty.
The announcement follows Samsung’s distribution review, in which Tech Data Mobile won a ‘competitive’ tendering process last week to be chosen as one of four Samsung partners.
