ITdistri helps brands evaluate and expand their distribution channels - and resellers find new suppliers. The registration in the directory is free for distributors, who get a personalized ID and password to update their data online. 

 

Eligible companies must have an active distribution business. Distribution is defined as sourcing and supplying new or used third party products to a channel customer base, meaning that brokers are present within the directory.

 

The search engine and distributor data are available in multiple languages. All other pages are available only in English.

 

The ITdistri newsfeed keeps readers up to speed on IT distribution news from across the globe. The news feed contains a mix of press releases, articles from channel magazines and exclusive news content.
