Broadliner Tech Data Ireland has made its industry-leading subscription service – which enables partners to offer their customers a package of hardware, software and services for a monthly fee.
Tech-as-a-Service provides customers with a pay-as-you-go option for all of their technology needs – whether that’s for a few laptops, or a complete infrastructure refresh or new software licenses. Partners can also offer their own services (or Tech Data service options) as part of the overall package.
For the end-user customer, this means they can invest in the latest technology and solutions right away, without having to find the capital expenditure; for partners it makes winning deals easier by providing an alternative option to outright purchase, and it means they get the full income from the sale up-front, with all the finances taken care of through the Tech-as-a-Service programme.
Quoting for Tech-as-a-Service is easy and the whole process can be managed online. The Ireland sales team has been fully trained, and Tech Data also has a specialist support team who are ready to answer questions and support on quotes and processing applications.
Mark Glasspool, services director for Tech Data Ireland and UK, said: “it’s wonderful to have Tech-as-a-Service fully available in Ireland. We’ve already had a number of enquiries and we expect to see the pipeline build-up quickly. For Irish partners, Tech-as-a-Service is a great option to put on the table, for commercial customers, for schools, and the wider public sector. As we have seen in the UK, there are a lot of organisations needing to invest in the latest tech right now, without really having the capex budget; for them, Tech-as-a-Service is the ideal solution. It’s really easy to use and we are here to support partners every step of the way.”
