Tech Data Europe has launched an enhanced version of InTouch, its web-based e-commerce solution, including an improved search function and navigation that allows users to find and purchase products with fewer clicks than before. InTouch gives customers fingertip access to Tech Data Europe's complete product catalogue, enabling resellers to track their order history and invoices, and make after-sales enquiries. The enhanced version features improved navigation with clear product categories, so users can immediately select the type of product they need using intuitive tools for screen-sizing and pricing, as well as one-click selection of required features. The presentation of search results has been made leaner and simpler, making visual comparisons and refinement of the search easier. Information needed is visible on one screen so there is no need for additional scrolling. Craig Partington, EMEA eBusiness director at Tech Data Europe, states: "With the latest release of InTouch, we have made it even easier and faster for resellers to find what they want, so they spend less time searching for the right product and more time dealing with the needs of their customers. The process is logical and neat—with just a few clicks, you can narrow down your search to a handful of suitable solutions or a specific product. These changes make InTouch an even more useful tool for resellers and retailers looking to respond quickly to customer enquiries and maximise their chances of winning business." Tech Data has created a special set of visual guides to the updated system, including a short demonstration video, to explain the enhancements.
