Tech Data Mobile teams up with Grass Roots to offer Salary Sacrifice scheme on smartphones

Launch webinar will show partners how easy it is to deliver significant savings to employees and employers

Basingstoke, 30 March 2016 – Tech Data Mobile has partnered with salary sacrifice scheme specialist, Grass Roots to offer resellers an easy way to access schemes that can deliver significant savings for both employees – and encourage them to sell more smartphones.

Tech Data Mobile is launching the scheme to partners with a webinar event this Thursday 31st March. This will demonstrate to resellers just how easy the scheme is to enter and to administer, and how it can excite employees and offer them tangible savings.

Grass Roots has been providing its Computingscheme for some time and has now introduced Phonescheme, which enables employees to spread the cost and save up to 42 percent off the RRP of new handsets. Participating businesses can also save up to 13.8 percent on employer National Insurance contributions.

Simon Smale, Director, Business Development and Services at Tech Data Mobile, said: “The Grass Roots Phonescheme is a great idea and it delivers benefits in many ways. As well as giving both employees and employers the opportunity to save money, it can help sales staff to develop a real enthusiasm for products that will help them convey the benefits to their own customers and sell more smartphones.”

The scheme is entirely free of charge to employer companies and Grass Roots takes care of all management and administration. Resellers can register for this Thursday’s webinar at
