Collaboration solution vendor SMART Technologies has announced the immediate shipment of the new 213cm version of the SMART kapp digital capture board. Like the original 106.5cm version, SMART kapp 84 is a modern replacement for outdated and outmoded dry-erase boards and flip charts. As easy to use as a traditional whiteboard, kapp 84 provides the ability to share and save work in real time, on any device, with anyone, anywhere in the world. The larger version of kapp is the ideal tool when you need more space than a kapp 42 provides – making the power of SMART kapp available in more meeting areas such as huddle spaces, boardrooms, lecture halls, classrooms, hotel meeting facilities and much more. The availability of kapp 84 comes as SMART adds two significant distribution partners in Europe. AV specialist TD Maverick and broadliner Tech Data are now master distributors for SMART kapp in Austria, Belux, Denmark, Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland. Additionally, an agreement making the Specialty Solutions division of broadliner Ingram Micro, already a SMART kapp distributor in North America, a master distributor will make kapp available in France, Italy, Portugal and Spain.

Broadliner Tech Data has been selected to participate in Microsoft's Cloud Solution Provider program. This program is designed to expand cloud sales opportunities for reseller partners by enabling them to provide direct billing, sell combined offers and services, and directly provision, manage and support products and services. Building on the successful launch of the Cloud Solution Provider program in the company's Americas region over the last six months, Tech Data Europe's appointment as a 2-Tier Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) now completes the portfolio of Microsoft cloud products it offers to the channel. CSP will be integrated into Tech Data's StreamOne cloud platform, which is currently available in France, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Resellers in the remaining countries (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain and Switzerland) in Tech Data Europe's footprint will be able to access this service following a progressive rollout of the platform expected to conclude at the end of April 2015. Through its participation in the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider program, Tech Data will consolidate monthly billing for Cloud Solution Provider subscriptions along with monthly bills for other cloud services so reseller partners receive a single invoice each month. This will enable solution providers to more easily sell Office 365 and Windows Intune subscriptions. Tech Data Europe will also offer additional services to resellers, including support with Office 365 migration.
