Tech Data makes Nuance desktop imaging range more widely available via TD Activate Here

Basingstoke, 2 February 2016 – Tech Data has been appointed as a distributor in the UK by Nuance Communications and is making the company’s market-leading document scanning and conversion solution – Power PDF – available to the wider reseller community, through the popular TD Activate Here electronic download platform.

Nuance Power PDF gives business users the features they need at a price that businesses and professionals can justify. Users can view, create, assemble, convert, edit, search, secure, and print PDF documents and forms with unprecedented ease and speed. Power PDF delivers performance, ease of use and exceptional value, freeing users from the compromises of other PDF applications. Nuance Power PDF is available in Standard and Advanced editions, with the latter offering additional enterprise-class features and licensing options.

The solutions will be made available primarily through Tech Data’s TD Activate Here electronic software distribution (ESD) system, which makes it very easy for resellers and retailers to offer the very latest software solutions for immediate download and activation by the end user customer.

Nick Stancliffe, Software Business Manager at Tech Data, said Nuance is a valuable addition to the Tech Data software portfolio and one which has good potential. “More organisations and individuals are now looking for ways to streamline document workflows and ways to store documents permanently and securely. Nuance leads the way in document scanning, OCR and conversion software and we see good growth potential for the Power PDF range. By making it available via TD Activate Here we are making it very easy for retailers and resellers to add these solutions to their portfolio and pick up on additional potential when they are selling scanners and NAS devices in particular.”

According to Nuance, a typical 500-person company loses about $650,000 per year in productivity as workers struggle to work with incompatible PDF and Microsoft Office formats. More than 60% of business professionals indicated a strong need for PDF, yet fewer than 10% of business desktops are empowered with the ability to create and edit PDFs.
Nuance’s renowned Dragon range of voice recognition software for the PC and Mac will also be available from Tech Data.
